Description
"Remembering James", starring Broadway World Awards nominee Dedrick Weathersby, tells the story of The Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Spanning nearly two decades of his monumental career, you’ll see how a divided country, the growing Civil Rights movement and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. shaped the artist’s work. A eight-piece band accompanies the show, bringing the passion of his music to life. Dedrick was last seen in the area with The Carnegies production of "Dream Girls", in which he played the role of Jimmy "James Thunder" Early. Some songs include: “Please Please,” “Papa Got a Brand New Bag,” “I Feel Good,” “This a Man’s World,” “Say It Loud I’m Black and I’m Proud.”
