Smokey Robinson lights up Keith-Albee stage
HUNTINGTON -- Motown came downtown Saturday night when Smokey Robinson took to the stage at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center.
The concert was the latest offering from the Marshall Artists Series.
Robinson, who founded the first group signed to Berry Gordy's Motown Records, has donned almost every hat there is to be worn in the musical industry as a performer, songwriter, producer, talent scout and eventually the VP of Motown.
The concert was sponsored by Cabell Huntington Hospital, Beford Auto, Verizon, Marshall Health, WV Lottery, Ransbottom Law Office, River Cities Anesthesia, Community Trust Bank, David & Kim Robinson, KEE 100, WVHU, The Herald-Dispatch, WSAZ, Marshall University, MU College of Fine Arts and the Marshall Artists Series.
The next event from the MAS will be the Spring International Film Festival from Friday, Feb. 22, to Thursday, Feb. 28, at the Keith-Albee.
