FORT WORTH -- There's a lot of soul at the Bass Performance Hall this week.

Oh yeah!  Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson. Is that enough soul for ya?

"Motown: The Musical," based on Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, has folks streaming in to shake and boogie to all the #1 hits his record studio produced.

Dana Marie Ingraham, an SMU grad, stars as Mary Wilson from The Supremes, "The Motown legacy is very much a part of the fabric of American history. It's an important story to tell, and it really revolutionized music during a revolutionary time in our country."

And because we all know the words, Ingraham says she's got an audience full of back up singers.

"It's actually amazing. There's a synergy that happens between performer and audience. When you know that they're having a good time and go on this journey with you, it's amazing to have them sing along."

And the journey isn't easy for the performers who are dealing with wardrobe challenges throughout the entire show.

"It's organized chaos," Ingraham said.

Megan Quinn, Head Wardrobe Supervisor, is the chaos organizer, "Every scene is a different costume. There are 300 plus changes in the show. It is the heaviest costume piece show on tour."

So, don't miss out on all the fashion and music. "Motown" will be in Fort Worth through Sunday.

No doubt! It's guaranteed to make your soul sing.
