I woke up Tuesday scheduled to interview Motown artists Sebastian Kole, La’Porsha Renae, and Kevin Ross at the label’s The New Definition of Soul showcase that night at Capitol Studios in Hollywood. By midday, I got an upgrade — the opportunity to have the conversations broadcast live on Motown’s Facebook page.
I was already excited to talk the artists but to get this exposure for Billy Johnson Jr Presents and The Museum of Light was a blessing. A surprise bonus was the chance to also sit down with the event’s host, Mila J, who’s also a Motown act.
While edits of the conversations will appear on this site and The Museum of Light at a later date, below you can check out the videos from the live stream.
As far as the showcase, it was incredible. All of the artists offered strong sets. Check out my review for The Museum of Light. The photo above comes from the night’s final song, a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s in Need of Love Today.”
