American Idol Music Director Ray Chew brings A Tribute to the Music of Motown to Carnegie Hall on February 9, 2012.
Here, Chew reminisces about working at his grandfather's record store in the 1960s, with Motown stars appearing a couple of blocks away at The Apollo Theater in Harlem—all happening against the backdrop of the Civil Rights Movement of the day.
