artown logoSINGERS TAKING ACTION REACHING SOULS NEWS RELEASE – STARS (Singers Taking Action Reaching Souls) will share their extraordinary vocal talents in one fantastic concert for northern Nevada on July 6, from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Nightingale Concert Hall in the Church Fine Arts Building, on the UNR Campus, in Reno. Admission is free. For a map click here.  Singing everything from Motown to Gershwin to Ave Maria, you are sure to leave dancing after sharing the evening with them.

STARS is a very unique nine-person vocal ensemble that tours the world, quite literally, lighting it up. Member, Rhonda LaFountaine, is from Reno.  Two others are from Las Vegas, and the others are from Colorado, New York, Minnesota and Florida.  With an immensely diverse playlist, STARS sell out venues interpreting Pop, Jazz, Broadway, and R&B covers, while other times breathing new spirit into compelling Inspirational, Gospel, and quartet standards.

As Ambassadors of the United States, the STARS aim to bridge the gulf, currently existing between the peoples of the world, with art and song. From the United Nations to Dubai, from Egypt to South Korea, from China to India to Reno, the music of STARS connects us all, casting away any perceived differences in culture, race, age, economic status or nationality.

STARS was inaugurated by Harvey Fuqua and his wife Carolyne.  Harvey, a founding member of Motown and inductee in the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame, introduced the world to The Moonglows, Marvin Gaye, The Spinners, Jr. Walker, as well as guiding Smokey Robinson’s career for decades, to name a few.  STARS is Harvey’s legacy.
