Come to Park Forest’s Freedom Hall for holiday cheer, as The Masters of Soul appear on December 5, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!
The Masters of Soul, are a tribute group which channels soul music. For pop music fans of a certain age, the concert will be the ultimate stroll down Memory Lane. Younger generations can experience what legendary soul groups sounded like way back when.
The group: John Hodges, baritone lead vocalist whose voice will remind you of Barry White and Melvin Franklin of The Temptations; Dario Outlaw, lead vocalist (think the late, great Prince) and choreographer for the show; Ronald Smith, known for his brilliant vocal range from falsetto to baritone; keyboardist and music director Jermaine Newsom; bassist Oscar Waters; Motown-style guitarist Darrell Ballard; drummer Al Hundley, who played professionally at thirteen; Lady D, lead vocalist who will rock you with her Gladys Knight singing style; Shinee Cruise, who channels Mary Wells and Diana Ross; Ophelia Vaughan, backup singer and daughter of Oscar Waters.
