The undeniable impact and enduring legacy of the Motown sound was honored on Sunday night (April 21st) during the TV special, Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration, which included a star-studded, tribute recognizing the label’s six decades of excellence and pop culture influence.
In a statement released by Lopez about the lasting influence and universality of Motown’s music: “The thing about music is that it inspires all. Any type of music can inspire any type of artist…. You can’t tell people what to love. You can’t tell people what they can and can’t do, what they should sing or not sing. You gotta do what’s in your heart.”
