On Sunday 30th April The Flirtations will perform at the Northern Soul Spectacular at Headingley Carnegie Stadium to raise money for charity, Charity Soul.
The Flirtations, an all-girl R&B group have been performing since the 1960's and have been idolised for years enthusiasts of the Northern soul scene.
The Flirtations made their British recording debut with 'How Can You Tell Me' in 1967 on the Parrot label. The next year, the group released the popular, late-'60s hit 'Nothing But A Heartache.' For the next decade, The Flirtations built up a following in England, with the trio discovering that the UK was far better for them in music than where they were born in the US.
This will be the fifth Northern Soul Spectacular held at the Stadium, which is now one of the most popular events for Northern Soul fans, with the famous sports stadium transformed into a music venue across three rooms.
Starting at 4pm until midnight there will be a main room playing general 60s Northern soul Music, a modern soul room and a Motown room.
Charity Soul was set up in 2013 by Northern Soul lover, Terry Hopkinson following the death of a close friend from Cancer. Following Terry’s initial call to the Northern Soul community to support Charity Soul events, the movement has grown and inspired DJ’s across the country to hold their own fundraising nights.
From the beginning one the key aims of Charity Soul has been to directly support those researching a cure for Cancer and with this in mind they made the decision that all the profits they raised would go to acclaimed researcher, Professor Norman Maitland and his team at York University.
