The Edna Boykin Cultural Center was alive with music and singing Saturday night as Boykin Series 21 returned with the Motown Soul and Groove Show with Chrissy Oravits and The Nutones band.

A special segment was a tribute to Melanie Horton, creator of the professional studio band The Nutones, and some of her favorite songs were on the set list. She passed away on May 22, 2017.

Sentimental old favorites “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Proud Mary,” “Mr. Postman,” “Respect” and “Dancing in the Streets” and several more were featured throughout the evening and the show closed with “We Are Family.”

Another top-notch show at the historic Boykin Center in downtown Wilson.
