Davie County Arts Council will host a concert in honor Valentines on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Tilted “Magic Moments,” it will feature three vocalists – Glenn Leonard, Joe Coleman and Joe Blunt. All have been around the world and back again several times each as the lead singers of three of the most legendary vocal groups of all time: The Temptations, The Platters and The Drifters.

The three grew up singing together in church and on street corners throughout the 1960s before finding fame and fortune separately, then reuniting after 30 years to harmonize together once again.

Glenn Leonard and his tenor voice joined Motown’s legendary The Temptations, recording 10 hit albums, touring the world, and singing lead on many of their 1970s and 1980s R&B hits.

Joe Coleman joined The Platters for a two-decade stint as the group’s lead singer in addition to gaining a successful career as a songwriter and playwright.

Joe Blunt performed and recorded with The Drifters for over a decade in venues all over the world alongside Ben E. King and Johnny Moore, earning a Lifetime Achievement Award from Sony Records.

“Attendees will be treated to incredible showmanship, classic dance moves, and some of the biggest hits of all time, including ‘My Girl,’ ‘The Way You Do The Things You Do,’ ‘Get Ready,’ ‘The Great Pretender,’ ‘Only You,’ ‘Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,’ ‘Under The Boardwalk,’ ‘On Broadway,’ ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’ and many, many more,” said Sidniee Suggs, arts council director.
