Motown legend Smokey Robinson 'enamored with' Australian vocal group Human Nature
DETROIT (AP) ' Smokey Robinson is throwing his considerable support behind an Australian pop quartet that's set to kick off its first U.S. tour.
Human Nature is making a name for itself on this side of the world by singing the Motown-era songs Robinson himself made famous.
Motown Records' signature vocalist loved the group's take on the legendary label's standards so much that he signed on as its official presenter and helped facilitate a lengthy run for Human Nature at the Imperial Palace hotel in Las Vegas.
Now, the guys are heading out for their inaugural American tour, which gets under way Saturday in Detroit.
The 10-city excursion will take them to Washington, New York, Chicago and Boston through May 6.
