The Motown favorites performed an 8:15 p.m. concert in Bowman Gym this evening as part of DePauw's "Winter Weekend."

The Temptations -- whose hits include The Way You Do the Things You Do, My Girl, Ain't Too Proud to Beg, I Wish It Would Rain, and their new single, Cloud Nine -- were selected as the result of a campus opinion poll which ranked the group as the top choice of DePauw students. The immediate sellout, with all $5 tickets being sold to Temptations at DePauw.jpgDePauw students, proves that "if you give the students what they want they'll support it," says Union Building Senior Board President Russ Sklenicka.

The Temptations are: David Ruffin, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks, and Otis Williams.

A recent television special pairing the group with Diana Ross and the Supremes resulted in the release of several joint records, the most popular being I'm Gonna Make You Love Me.
