I must admit that sometimes, I am slow to jump on things. Not because I am disinterested, but mostly because I have to carve out the time for those things that are not necessarily on the top of my to-do list. The fact is, if we do not make things a priority, we could miss out on something extraordinary.
Finally I did it! I scheduled some time to go and see the show I’ve heard great reviews about for many months, Human Nature at the Venetian hotel inside the Sands Showroom. Side note: The Venetian and Palazzo are two elaborate and exquisite five-diamond luxury all suite resorts located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the pulse.
The group formed in 1989, originally as a doo-wop group called The 4 Trax, while the members were schoolmates in Sydney. After signing with Sony Music and renaming themselves Human Nature, they released their debut album in 1996, and have charted many hits in Australia’s Top 40, and hits in Australia’s Top 10. They’ve had albums to reach multi-platinum certification in Australia, and have reached platinum status with sales of over 1.6 million records in they’re native land.
Yes, I, the R&B queen and music lover of all kinds had to see for herself just what these delectable delights, I meant men had to offer by way of crooning to the tunes (of course). I mean, they are pop stars in their own right and people flock to see them when they travel back home. So, they must be about something, right?
I was glad to hear this group pay homage to Motown because it spoke volumes about how a culture can influence people from around the world in a positive way. We hear a lot of negativity about Detroit, but, it’s rich history is embedded within the fiber of America in so many ways.
These guys made a pact after hearing Motown music that they would dedicate their career and sound to being and giving the vibes of Motown to their fans and be unapologetic. The lesson is that you have to have an open mind and be willing to learn from all people, cultures, places and things. You will be amazed at where you could be and what you can become, especially when you remove race.
Human Nature received their break when they had the opportunity to sing a few songs (which they had practiced 1,000 of times) for Smokey Robinson, the catalyst who wrote dynamic songs that pivoted many singers into immediate stardom. If ever you want to share your gift, it must be before those who are great, like Smokey.
Here is a snippet of the energy they exude during the 90-minute performance…
If you are in Vegas or plan on visiting soon, you must check out this show and make sure you are prepared to sing (on key of course), and have a rockin’ good time.
Enjoy your life, dance wildly and sing loud! Afterall, “It’s Human Nature!”
