About this show

Back by popular demand from the citizens of East Palo Alto and surrounding cities. Remembering James, starring Broadway World Awards nominee Dedrick Weathersby and East Palo Alto's native Will Roc, tells the story of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Spanning nearly two decades of his monumental career, you'll see how a divided country, the growing civil rights movement and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shaped the artist's work. A eight-piece band accompanies the show, bringing the passion of his music alive while offering a message of hope to a grief-stricken nation looking for a moment of healing and celebration. Be a part of this journey as they set their sights on the legendary Apollo Theater in late June 2020.

Some songs include: "Please Please," "Cold Sweat," "I Feel Good," "This a Man's World."
