A perfect combination! Creatively combining those oldies
but goodies with today’s modern music. That’s right, you’ve
got it! They make “Now, then & forever” unfold right before
your eyes!
Pam Darden and her gals realized they had the same creative dream, to recreate a musical lifetime right there on
stage. Each had experienced their moment of greatness,
but never like this! What a combination! What a celebration!
THE HISTORY OF THE MARVELETTES
The Marvelettes occupy an esteemed place in the history of
American popular music as the group that cause Motown,
and most notably Berry Gordy, to change the label’s focus
from single bluesy soul artists (previously Barret Strong’s
“Money” had been the label’s biggest seller) to a smooth,
orchestrated, harmonic sound that transcended the prior
racial limits of rhythm and blues. With their first record,
“Please Mr. Postman” hitting the top spot on the charts and
selling 3-million records in a crossover market, Motown began to concentrate on groups like the Marvelettes, Supremes,
Temptations, Four Tops, and Martha Reeves & The
Vandellas, creating a new group pop soul sound that totally
dominated the music charts until the advent of the Beatles
four years later.
During their reign at the top of the charts, the girls were to
turn out more than a dozen hits, eight of which went Top 10.
The Marvelettes gave Motown its first certified number 1 hit
with “Please, Mr. Postman” which set into motion the Motown sound worldwide. The Marvelettes helped to set the
stage for an era in music history that is unforgetable, and
best, unmistakable.
The Marvelettes are a very unique group combining the
talends of three singers from diversified background. The
result is a strong definitive sound built on confidence and
ability.
Now, Then.. . and Forever!
Pam Darden began her career singing in the Baptist
Church. At a very young age, Pam began singing in local
groups and doing live stage performances. She grew up
in a town where The Manhattens, Soul Generation, and
Kool and the Gang were her partners on the local scene.
She then began singing with the Adlibs, whos main hit
was The Boy From New York City. Pam knew she was
headed for stardom when she auditioned and became a
member of Motown’s #1 Girl Group, The Marvelettes...
performing with original member Gladys Horton’s group
for several years during the 1980s & 90s! Pam has also
collaborated with Alton Taylor, and the late Victor Mickens
who wrote the hit song “Summer Madness” for Kool and
the Gang. Together, Pam, Alton, and Victor wrote 25
songs!
Celebrity Direct Entertainment presents a very unique
group combining the talents of three singers from diversified backgrounds. This combination has resulted in a
strong definitive sound built on confidence and ability.
