Brett believes that this year's Soul legends by locals connects the community to its culture as well as its rich music scene.

This Saturday evening Fort Wayne’s Embassy Theatre is celebrating its return to live concerts and the city’s rich musical culture with Down the Line 15: Soul Legends by Locals.

With a line up that features the Ty Causey Band performing Stevie Wonder, Todd Harrold performing Bill Withers, the Institute for the Musically Insane performing Isaac Hays and Fatima Washington performing the Supremes, program manager Micheal Brett feels that the show presents a fitting tribute to the genre while speaking to the resiliency of the Embassy as well as the community it serves.

For a preview of the show itself and the safety protocols the theatre has adapted, WBOI’s Julia Meek sat down with Brett and participating artist, Fatima Washington to discuss the spirit that makes it all work.
