If you enjoy some good Motown music, you'll want to check out the 40th anniversary celebration of Harlem Week.

The Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce is planning a month of fun.

It will include a salute to the blockbuster Broadway hit "Motown: the Musical," including live performances from the cast at Grant National Park.

Organizers say the music, featuring legends like Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross, has stood the test of time.

"The whole Motortown Revue, when it hit the Apollo Theater, it's unforgettable, some of those things that occurred, so we're going to try to capture those moments again in the great day of Harlem," said Herb Boyd of the Harlem Chamber of Commerce.

The event will also pay homage to the Philadelphia sound of Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes.
