Motown: The Musical is a smash hit in Detroit, the town where it all started. The musical is based on Berry Gordy's autobiography, "To be loved: the Music, the Magic, the Memories of Motown." Berry Gordy is a songwriter, producer, director, innovative entrepreneur, teacher and visionary and has won many awards during his career such as the 2013 Marian Anderson Award, BET's Achievement Award and Major League Baseball's 2014 Beacon of Change Award. His films include "Lady sings the Blues" and "Mahogany." The play begins in 1983 when Berry Gordy celebrates the 25th anniversary of Motown Records.

NEW PHOTOS: Rendezvous Back to Route 66 in San Bernardino -- Final Set

The Rendezvous Back to Route 66 car show returned to the San Manuel Stadium on Oct. 10 and 11 in San Bernardino, Calif. It replaced the Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous, which formerly took place on the streets of San Bernardino up until its funding was cut in 2012. “We’re very excited to have it again,” said Judi Penman, president and CEO of the San Bernardino Chamber of Commerce. “We’re trying to re-establish the Rendezvous Back to Route 66 where it all began. Then, not necessarily because of the bankruptcy, it was more the loss of the convention and visitors bureau, which the city chose not to put any money into."
