The velvet-voiced trio formerly known as the Three Mo Tenors made their second Memphis appearance at the Cannon Center Saturday night. It was part of the cultural development foundation's efforts to not only entertain. However, to elevate Memphians with culturally diverse, yet, upscale acts. Cook, Dixon and Young obliged singing a mixture of opera, blues, soul, spiritual, jazz and Broadway classics. "I would say just singing those different styles of music in one night, is a sort of education right there. Bringing all of those styles of music together in one night." "Ew, Listen to the beat. Let the good times roll." Other acts the Cultural Development Foundation plans to bring to Memphis this season include Def Poetry Jam, the Boys Choir of Harlem and Ballet Hispanico. However, besides educating their audiences Cook, Dixon and Young have another goal, "We want to make sure that no matter what we do, we honor it, and do it well. And if in the process of that, if we find that people are educated, great. But we're primarily interested in just making the most beautiful music we can. No matter what kind of music it is."
