The Delta Research and Educational Foundation and ProSounity Music Entertainment invite D.C.-area residents to experience the unmistakable sounds and soulful delivery of Kim Jordan’s “Motown House Party & Revue.”

The event, which benefits DREF’s work to improve the lives of African-American women and their families, takes place at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 12 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Bethesda, Md.

The Delta Research and Educational Foundation, established by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. as a public charity more than five decades, has supported scholastic achievement, public service programs, social change initiatives and research focused on the empowerment of African American women.

“Our goals remain the same today spurred on by an ever-increasing need to ensure social and economic equality now and for future generations,” said foundation CEO Patricia Watkins Lattimore.

Kim Jordan records, produces, promotes and leads ProSounity Music Entertainment and performs with her band, Uncommon. Jordan’s tribute to the Motown sound performed under the umbrella of “Motown House Party & Revue” includes the memorable hits and sounds of the Supremes, the Temptations, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, the Jackson Five,and more.

The performance will feature DMV soul singer Ka’Ba and vocalist Marci Butler Holt of Nashville, Tenn., a former co-chairperson of the National Arts & Letters Commission of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.

Concert proceeds will enable DREF to increase its capacity to provide community empowerment grants, support learning opportunities for young African-American women like the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Summer Internship program offered in conjunction with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.

“It’s experiences such as this one that help direct the future of African-American women interested in pursuing careers in public policy through public service,” Lattimore said.
