From Atlanta, Georgia, USA, William Hicks has become the most prominent ambassador internationally of Motown sound in the last two decades.
He formed Soul Satisfaction in 1990 and has taken the show across the globe from its roots in Atlanta to Europe and Asia performing on land and sea. His genius has created several outstanding concept style shows, Soul Satisfaction's The History of Motown Show, the American Four Tops Motown Show and the American Legends Show with the slogan "Get Ready, Cos here we come" proceeding his arrival.
All Soul Satisfaction shows feature the star and backbone Mr William Hicks on lead vocals. His superb vocal range seems to know no limits and his unique voice has been compared to that of Levi Stubbs of the original Four Tops. William is responsible not only for arranging the splendid vocal harmony structures of his backing singers but also for choreographing the high stepping impressive dance routines keeping things pure Motown.
Although the line-up of Soul Satisfaction has changed over the years, William Hicks always delivers the same outstanding show with a phenomenal quartet who under his direction, keeps the music of the legendary Four Tops alive worldwide as he takes you through the hits "Reach Out", "Baby I Need Your Loving", "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie)", "Standing In The Shadow", "Bernadette", "Walk Away Rene", "Loco In Acapulco" and plenty more from that era including songs of The Drifters, The Miracles, The Platters, The Stylistics and The Temptations.
