What began when a remarkable combination of soulful voices united in Detroit in 1961 became the epic lifetime journey of The Temptations, often referred to as “American Music Royalty.” The group’s 60-year history spans both the 20th and 21st centuries, and their music transcends generations.
In a commemoration befitting one of the most revered and prolific musical institutions of all time, The Temptations launched their 60th Anniversary campaign in summer 2021. It will run through June 2022. The campaign includes a new album release in 2022 and a 50-city concert tour. They also are remastering their music videos, including “Standing on the Top” with Rick James and their No. 1 hit, “Stay,” and the Imperial Theatre re-opened the Broadway musical, Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations, in October 2021. Named the “#1 R&B/Hip Hop Artists of All Time” and one of the “125 Greatest of All Time Artists” by Billboard magazine, as well as one of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” by Rolling Stone magazine, the group is truly a beloved national treasure. In addition to being awarded the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Grammy® Award in 2013, the Temptations have won four Grammy® Awards (and nine Grammy® nominations), the first renowned for also being Motown’s first.
