Thankful to this man. He's been introducing me to his management team. Real business pending.

Dr. Otis Williams is the founding, and only surviving, member of the original, legendary, super-group the Temptations. He is unlike any other musical artist in American culture. Dr. Otis Williams will turn 80 on October 30, 2021.

The group is celebrating their 60th Anniversary. To mark this milestone, The Temptations’ 60th Anniversary campaign launched this summer and will run through June 2022, in a celebration befitting one of the most revered and prolific musical institutions of all time.



The year-long campaign includes a new album in 2022; a 50-city concert tour throughout this year and next, with more global dates to be announced; remastering of their music videos, including “Standing on the Top” with Rick James and their No. 1 hit “Stay;” a new content series; the Imperial Theatre re-opening on October 16th of the Broadway musical, Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations, based on Dr. Otis Williams’s personal journey that was nominated for 12 Tony Awards®, including Best Musical and won the Tony Award for Best Choreography at the 73rd Tony Awards ceremony in June 2019 and whose UMe cast album was GRAMMY®-nominated; and celebratory events along the way including Dr. Otis Williams’ 80th birthday on October 30th. Their Emmy® Award-Winning Television mini-series, The Temptations, which first aired to rave reviews in 1998, is still on air or streaming every day somewhere in the world. Williams’ critically acclaimed autobiography, Temptations, was recently released as an audiobook edition for the first time, with a new introduction by Dr. Williams.
