The Miracles are on a nationwide tour to honor the veterans and those who are currently in the armed forces. The free concerts are a way of giving back to those that have served and are serving our nation and who we hold near and dear to our hearts. The Miracles are one of the best groups of all time and their performance is electrifying. Lead vocalist Sydney Justin, Kerry Justin, Cordell Conway and Mel Bridges put on a dynamic show with some of their great songs, such as “Shop Around” “Ooh Baby Baby” “Love Machine” “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me”.
The Miracles was one of many groups to sign up with Motown over 40 years ago when childhood friends Smokey Robinson Claudette Robinson, Ronnie White and Pete Moore founded the group. It was an exciting evening for Pete Moore, who was seated in the front row with his wife Tina Moore, to be recognized as the founder of The Miracles. www.miraclesforheros.com

The 1500 seat auditorium was filled with veterans, fans, friends and VIP’s that showed their love and enthusiasm for the 90 minutes non-stop show. The choreography was outstanding and their energy and harmonies never slowed down as they sang their last song. The show was fabulous and it ended with many people from the audience coming on stage to dance with the Miracles.
Thank you to The Miracles for honoring our military with your wonderful concert and giving them a special night to remember.
