"Motown -- The Musical" tells the story of the legendary music label boss Berry Gordy, who borrowed $800 from his family and created Motown.

Set during the 25th anniversary celebrations in 1983, it follows Gordy as he looks back on the birth of the label that launched everyone from Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye, to Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and Diana Ross.

With the Viet Nam war looming and America in the throes of a cultural revolution, Berry had to fight hard to break down barriers and take the music world by storm.

The soundtrack includes 40 classic tracks including "My Girl" "What's Going On" "Dancing in the Street" and "I Heard It Through The Grapevine"..
