On Sunday, May 8, 2011, The Mother’s Day Concert spreads some motherly love "Old School Style.” With a just-added 3pm matinee and a 7:30pm show, the bill features classic R&B and soul with one of music’s most beloved and consistently popular vocal groups, The Whispers ("Rock Steady," "It's a Love Thing," "And the Beat Goes On") and the distinctive, soulful voice of the always-captivating Stephanie Mills ("Never Knew Love Like This Before," "Home," "Something in the Way You Make Me Feel"), plus special guest Lillo Thomas ("Your Love's Got a Hold on Me," "I'm in Love.")

“We’re pleased to bring this great mix of entertainment to one of New York’s most beautiful landmark venues.“ says Bill Zafiros, co-founder of Marquee Concerts, producers of the show. “The Royal Comedy Tour offers four of today’s sharpest comics for a night of raucous fun, while The Mother’s Day Concert makes the perfect gift for mom, with legendary R&B group The Whispers celebrating over 40 years of hits and the GRAMMY and American Music Award-winning Stephanie Mills,” he adds.
