January 26: Smokey Robinson at the Fabulous Fox Theatre (VIDEO)

Smokey Robinson at the Fabulous Fox Theatre

Motown living legend William "Smokey" Robinson, Jr., will play Atlanta's Fabulous Fox Theatre this Saturday, January 26 at 8 p.m. The iconic singer, songwriter and Grammy-Award winning entertainer will perform all of his hit songs including “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “I Second That Emotion,” “The Tears Of a Clown," "Just to See Her," and "Cruisin."

"From the start, Robinson mastered the virtues of the Great American Songbook and its down-home cousin, the country standards: His songs were linguistically clever, emotionally direct, melodically indelible, and never overlong. By marrying these elements to a finger-snapping beat, he and Berry Gordy essentially created modern pop music as we know it," says The Concourse.com. 

Watch a sneak peek of what Smokey will be giving the audience tomorrow night:
