The 5th Dimension to Perform at Hall of Fame Induction
With their signature harmonies, they will perform such hits as “Up, Up, and Away,” “One Less Bell to Answer,” “Last Night I Didn’t Get to Sleep at All,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “Stoned Soul Picnic” and the iconic “Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In.”
“Whether you remember their music from the 1960s and ’70s or just appreciate a dynamic performance, The 5th Dimension will entertain you with their incredible vocal range and dazzling showmanship,” said Michael Amini, chairman of the Hall of Fame Foundation board of directors. “The 5th Dimension will kick off a spectacular Induction Celebration at the industry’s biggest networking event where we will be inspired and celebrate leadership at its best.”
Joining the current 108 members of the Hall of Fame are Donald H. Flanders, Sr., founder and chairman of Lloyd Flanders, Inc.; Vladimir Kagan, contemporary furniture designer; Samuel Kuo, co-founder and chairman of Samson Holding Ltd.; and Bernard D. Moray, chairman of Gorman’s Home Furnishings & Interior Design.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell will be keynote speaker at the event.
The 5th Dimension’s resume includes more than 20 million records sold worldwide, five number-one hits, 22 Top 40 hits, and six Grammy Awards. They have performed on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, including the Royal Albert Hall in London, Radio City Music Hall, and the Hollywood Bowl.
“Up, Up, and Away” and “Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In” were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and The 5th Dimension has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Original member and lead vocalist Florence LaRue is celebrating 50 years with the group. With Willie Williams, Leonard Tucker, Patrice Morris and Floyd Smith, Amini said she has put together a show that is fresh and varied, while remaining true to The 5th Dimension’s original recordings.
The Induction Celebration will again be held at the Sheraton Greensboro Four Seasons. To purchase tickets, visit www.aspiretolead2017.com.
