http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Twh6MJYohW8/ThRdi7YJNaI/AAAAAAAAHB4/u0N1tYhUU9c/s1600/BlogIdol.png

Yay! The Heat Is on for our Quarter Finals which begins Today!
I'm not really sure if all of you guys are familiar with theme that we have for this week but this is really special to me since I grew up listening in such kind of music.
Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music, as it was the first record label owned by an African American to primarily feature African-American artists who achieved crossover success. In the 1960s, Motown and its soul-based subsidiaries were the most successful proponents of what came to be known as The Motown Sound, a style of soul music with a distinct pop influence.
Now let's hear the soulful entries from our finalists

"SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED, I"M YOURS"
