Motown Center Plans Scrapped
Plans to honour soul music label Motown with a museum in Detroit, Michigan have been scrapped, due to lack of funding. City officials and Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr spent six years planning the $28 million (GBP14 million) museum, but they can't find the funding to launch the Motown Center. Planners are now considering a project on a smaller scale. The museum was supposed to house Motown memorabilia and tribute items to the label's soul legends, including Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder.
