On Saturday, 20th February at 11AM ET (US), let’s meet online for A Joy Supreme: Dancing to Motown Magic — a Daybreaker LIVE sponsored by AARP.
Fam, bring on the tears of joy — this one’s going straight for the soul. 🙏
THE biggest R&B act of all time — Boyz II Men, performing on this virtual stage, Grammy-winning R&B Diva Thelma Houston singing to fill our hearts, AND MC Lyte, one of the greatest MCs of all time and a quintessential pioneer of female rap, on the decks to make us dance with reckless abandon… 🔥
This one’s a dream come true. And on Saturday, 20th February — from 11am until 1pm Eastern Time — history will be made together with a global livestream dance party to call in A Joy Supreme.
To honour Black History Month, let’s come together with AARP for an intergenerational celebration of dance, music, community and more than a half-century of Motown magic — the sound and legacy that changed America.
AARP is empowering this experience to make tix free for the community — so snag your RSVP before max Zoom Room capacity is hit. 🙌
Together, we’ll enjoy a little slice of bliss at home with the irreverent, glorious melodies and unforgettable hooks that didn’t just define a sound but also a joyous state of mind. It all starts with a 20-minute dance warm-up to introduce Steppin’ & Line-Dancing into our movement vocabulary.
Then dressed in sleek, sequined dresses, colourful high-style suits and all things reminiscent of Hitsville U.S.A. (✨this is the one to dress up for✨), we’ll move into the dance party letting our freedom of expression take the lead. *Cue the trifecta that is Boyz II Men, Thelma Houston & MC Lyte*
OG Daybreaker MC Elliott LaRue will be on the mic to inspire and remind us that the power of Black Joy truly knows no bounds. And for two sweet hours we’ll all be connected, with only the language of dance filling the space between us. ⚡️
We’ve all got music in us. Let’s set it wild. In joy, we dance. 💃
See you on the (virtual) dancefloor.
