President's Concert and Lecture Series Presents Theo Peoples
Thursday Mar 23, 2017 06:00 PM
Theo Peoples, Grammy award winning Motown musician and former member of the Temptations and the Four Tops, will perform from at 6 p.m. in Cutlip Auditorium
During his six-year tenure with the Temptations, he recorded two albums, “For Lover's Only,” and platinum Grammy-winning album, “Phoenix Rising.” He seized the spotlight with a flawless performance of the classic, “Night and Day” (which is also on the soundtrack of the hit movie, “What Women Want,” starring Mel Gibson, and Helen Hunt). He stood up and delivered on the hit single “Stay,” as well as penned the devotional composition, “This Is My Promise.”
Having made his national debut as a Temptation, earning the reputation as “The Voice,” Peoples was called on by yet another legendary group, the Four Tops, and spent 12-plus years touring with the group. He has shared the stage and the studio with legends, holding his own with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Bill Medley, Martha Reeves and The Pointer Sisters, just to name a few.
