Set List - Motown Salute at City of Life Gala

The annual Spirit of Life Gala was held last week in a tent on Santa Monica Beach with over 1,900 people raising $10 million for the City of Hope's cancer research program. The event was one of the largest one-night charity events in California history.

Doug Morris, chariman and CEO of Universal was honored while the entertainment for the night was brought by artists from the music group in salute of Motown's upcoming 50th anniversary. Along with his executive work, Morris is also a well known songwriters (the Chiffons' Sweet Talkin' Guy) and producer (Brownsville Station).

Joining in the celebration were such industry heavyweights as Berry Gordy, David Geffen, and Smokey Robinson.

Missing what could have been a true treat for the crowd, the backing band was a group of session musicians, known as the Doug Morris Motown Revue, instead of bringing in the original Funk Brothers.

The set list:
  • I'll Be There - Mariah Carey with Trey Lorenz & Randy Jackson on bass
  • Living for the City - Michael McDonald
  • Where Did Our Love Go - Rihanna
  • Easy - Lionel Richie
  • Stop! In The Name Of Love - Clique Girlz
  • Mary Jane - Erykah Badu
  • My Cherie Amour - Maroon 5
  • Love Child - Lee Ann Womack
