Valentines Evening Celebration What

By David W. on February 17, 2015

What a night we had! Mr. Bartee; aka, Mr. Motown, wowed the crowd with his adaptability and professionalism. I have received nothing but raved reviews, exclaiming how Mr. Bartee was able to adapt each song, from Stevie Wonder to Larry Graham, and make it fit each couple as if they were at an intimate, table side concert, for two. Not only were the couples please, but he had something for the single crowd, as well. I will definitely refer him to other venues and am anxiously awaiting a follow up return of the Man with the velvety voice.

Congregations and audiences took an interest in Bartee’s style of singing and at the age of 14 he was asked to tour and sing with several groups throughout Ohio. By the age of 16 he was singing at the Cathedral of Tomorrow and from these performances he had the pleasure of singing with music icons such as James Ingram, Howard Hewitt and Linda Cole.

As an established adult performer, Bartee became a renowned showman and continued to receive standing ovations. Over the years he has shared the stage with the famous OJ’s, the Ohio Players, local independent artists and even his own band. Bartee has performed in venues such as:

Bartee joined The TOUR in June 2013 to perform at an outdoor concert which took place in Lakeland, Florida. The TOUR is a Christian Rap music concert event that includes rappers, Christian rap music and videos. He was invited to perform at this event to bring music and songs and his performance closed out the concert with classic love songs and “music trivia” that the audience participated in.

He will travel to perform at family reunions, community holiday events, fundraisers and even weddings.

In April 2014 Bartee was the only live performer to hit the stage at the 2014 Ms. & Mrs. Florida United States Pageant performing songs for the audience at the Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center in Florida. He was also privileged to perform the "difficult" task of serving as pageant judge, reviewing over 20 lovely delegates from across the state.
