One of our all time favorite singers, Martha Reeves turns 77 years old today. Martha was the lead singer of the Motown girl group Martha Reeves & The Vandellas or just “Martha & The Vandellas”. They scored over a dozen hit singles, including “Nowhere to Run”, “Jimmy Mack”, and their all time classic “Dancing In The Street”.
From 2005 until 2009, Reeves served as an elected council woman for the city of Detroit, Michigan.
“It doesn’t matter what you wear, just as long as you are there….”
Happy Birthday Martha!!!!! You gave us a reason to dance!
And let’s be honest, her music turned on a whole bunch of white kids to the Motown Sound. Isn’t there a peace prize for that? (Or if you’re from New Orleans…. for dat!)
