GEORGETOWN, KY – The Foust Artist Series ends its 2012-’13 season by presenting The Marvelettes in John L. Hill Chapel on Monday, February 25, at 8 p.m. The singing group was the first major successful act of Motown Records in the 1960s and the first significant successful girl group for the label’s early years.

In 2005, the band’s most successful recordings, “Please Mr. Postman” and “Don’t Mess with Bill,” earned them two gold-certified awards from the RIAA. In 2012, the Marvelettes were nominated for induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
