    Well, the waiting is over!  Many thanks to all of you who voted for this year's winners of the SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards.  And further thanks to the enthusiastic audience that filled the Max M. Fisher Music Center to attend this year's Awards ceremony. 

    What a night!  The performances by April Hill, Algebra, Gordon Chambers, Phil Perry, Liv Warfield, Conya Doss, Heston, Monica Blaire and of course Sy Smith were simply amazing.  We cannot thank enough all of the great talent that came to Detroit to make it an historical evening.   And it was followed by a group tour of the amazing Motown Museum in Detroit on Saturday and an incredible All-Star Jam on Saturday night.
