ST. LOUIS – The legendary Diana Ross will headline the 26th Annual
Bob Costas Benefit for SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center
on Saturday, May 23, at 8 p.m. at the Fox Theatre.

Diana Ross has had a profound influence on American popular culture
and has become an icon in the entertainment industry. She is an Academy
Award nominated actress for her unforgettable role as Billie Holiday in
Lady Sings The Blues, a Tony and Golden Globe winner, a bestselling
author, winner of 8 American Music Awards and a recipient of The Kennedy
Center Honors. Her reputation as a woman of great style and beauty
has put her on the covers of hundreds of magazines. Ms. Ross has sold
over 100 million records and recorded 18 #1 hits. Her music became part
of the soundtrack the ‘60s soon after she signed with Motown Records in
1961 as the lead singer of The Supremes. She embarked on her
extraordinary solo career in 1970, and has not stopped since.

The legend. The music. The voice.

Diana Ross is one of the giants in the music and entertainment industry.

This special night will also be filled with laughter. While the comedic artist
for this event will be announced shortly, past Costas Benefits have
featured performers such as Billy Crystal, Jay Leno, Ray Romano,
Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Murray, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Dana Carvey,
Cedric The Entertainer, Kathleen Madigan, and many more.

Sponsorship opportunities, which include pre-show dinner options, are
available by contacting the Foundation office at 314-577-5605.

The Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY welcomed Miss Ross to the stage
for its GRAND REOPENING!!!!  The theatre has been closed since
1977, and the City spent 95 million dollars to restore this
venue to it beautiful grandeur of the 1920s!!!!  

What a BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL theatre!!!!  They certainly don't
make places like this today with such class and elegance.  
I must say that this is the perfect venue for Miss Ross!!

PRESS RELEASE:

FEBRUARY 28TH, TUNE IN TO PUBLIC TELEVISION STATIONS NATIONWIDE
FOR THE LANDMARK CONCERT AND TV SPECIAL THAT
CELEBRATED 25 YEARS OF MOTOWN – NOT SEEN ON TV
SINCE ITS ORIGINAL 1983 BROADCAST!


MOTOWN 25:

YESTERDAY· TODAY · FOREVER



Providing the Backstory for the Hit Broadway Play, Motown The Musical, the

Emmy® Award-Winning NBC Special Introduced the World to Michael Jackson’s Moonwalk

and Featured Reunions of The Jackson 5, the Miracles and The Supremes



Presented in Conjunction with TJL, the Premiere Provider of Nostalgia Music Pledge Programs

to Public Television Stations, the Program Will Premiere on February 28th at 8pm on

Most Public Television Stations (check local listings)



Fairfax, VA (January 22, 2015) – Where were you when Michael Jackson unveiled his iconic
moonwalk for the very first time as part of the legendary TV special Motown 25: Yesterday ·
Today · Forever?  You likely remember those “six seconds that changed the world”, as
the historic concert televised by NBC on May 16, 1983, became an immediate sensation and
water-cooler event in an era before social media.  Now, music lovers and pop culture
aficionados alike will have the opportunity to see magic and history being made as the
Emmy® Award-winning program will air exclusively as a fundraising event on public television
stations this February and March, marking the first TV broadcast of the concert since its
debut more than 30 years ago.  It will make its national public broadcasting premiere on
February 28 at 8pm ET & PT/7pm CT (check local listings).



Motown 25, under license from Mr. Berry Gordy’s West Grand Media and jointly distributed
by StarVista Entertainment and TJL, TJ Lubinsky’s celebrated public television distribution
company, will be broadcast exclusively for public televisions’ celebrations of Black History
Month on February 28th, with repeat broadcasts throughout March.



Produced by Motown Productions with Suzanne de Passe, Don Mischer and Buz Kohan,
Motown 25 was taped before a live audience at California’s Pasadena Civic Auditorium and
showcased virtually every Motown artist from the company’s inception, including Michael
Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, The Supremes,
The Jackson 5, The Miracles, The Temptations, Four Tops and many others.  The show
also featured many guests outside the Motown Records sphere who had been influenced
by Motown artists, including Linda Ronstadt, who performed a memorable duet with
Smokey Robinson, Billy Dee Williams, Jose Feliciano and British new wave star Adam Ant,
who was riding a wave of popularity from MTV exposure.  As an added highlight, the
historic evening was hosted by Richard Pryor, who was arguably the hottest comedian in
the world at the time. A seminal event in pop culture history, this concert event, which
would capture the Emmy® for Best Variety Program and a George Foster Peabody Award,
would establish the gold standard for all future televised concert events and go on to
provide the backstory for the Tony®-nominated Broadway play, Motown The Musical.


“With the popularity of ‘Motown: The Musical’, which continues to open in major markets
across the U.S., and the program’s recent success on DVD, there’s never been a better time
to re-air the original broadcast”, says Suzanne de Passe, the Executive Producer of the TV
show. “Whether you’re discovering that incredible night of music for the very first time, or
are huge fan of Motown whose been eagerly awaiting the show’s return to TV, ‘Motown 25’
offers a lifetime of magic and memories for everyone”.  Recalling his own memorable
experience from seeing the original 1983 broadcast, TJ Lubinsky remembers “It was the only
time in my life where everybody was talking about the same thing for the next couple days,”
he said. “Teachers, kids in school, disc jockeys on the radio were all buzzing. It was just
one of those shows…I knew that in some way I had to be a part of all this. At TJL, we’re so
proud to be the content providers bringing this historic event back to prime time television
in celebration of Black History Month on February 28th nationally with repeat
broadcasts throughout March.”
