GET UP, STAND UP: AN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SOUL

Rickey Minor is back, bringing his unbelievable music expertise and world-renowned talent to the POPS once again! After his explosive POPS debut last year with SINATRA: A Man and His Music, Minor is returning for what is sure to be an unforgettable program.

Hamilton star Joshua Henry made his POPS debut on July 3, 2021 with electric takes on “Tomorrow,” “Feeling Good,” and “Uptown Funk.” As he left the stage to a standing ovation, he remarked: “And I didn’t even do my James Brown.”  

Now, Joshua grooves through his very own encyclopedia of soul! The program covers favorites like “Heard it Through the Grapevine,” “A Change is Gonna Come,” and “Let’s Get it On,” celebrating the sounds of funk, R&B, and soul. He can sing Marvin, he can sing James, and he can sing Sam … all with his own swagger and swing! 

Plus, The Philly POPS will open each half of the program with an original instrumental piece, flavored with the soul of the nation.  

Repertoire Coming Soon!
