…They Say I'm Different, a concert featuring Motown and Bring It On actress Ariana DeBose, was held Aug. 12 at Joe's Pub.

At the 9:30 PM concert DeBose, who plays Mary Wilson in Motown, was joined by Motown co-star Charl Brown and  Chaplin's Jenn Colella as well as Ariana Groover, Sara Kapner and Alice Lee — who all appeared in the Off-Broadway revival of Bare — and Saycon Sengbloh ( Motown, Fela!). 

Directed by Max Friedman with music direction by Damien Bassman, the evening promised "an eclectic mix of material, ranging from funk rock classics to new work from up-and-coming musical theatre writers. The multimedia concert showcased Ariana's versatility as an interpreter of stories through music and dance. A four-piece band played musical director Damien Bassman's re-imagined arrangements of songs written or made famous by Shirley Bassey, Beth Hart, Annie Lennox, Prince, Drew Overcash, Diana Ross, Zack Zadek and many more."

DeBose, who was a contestant on the reality television series "So You Think You Can Dance?," was also seen on Broadway as Nautica in Bring It On: The Musical. Click here to read her exclusive blog for about performing with both Broadway shows on this year's Tony Awards.
