"This evening will celebrate the one and only Maestro of Motown, Ron Miller, a songwriter who not only entertained audiences for over fifty years, but through his music provided a voice for the voiceless, infused joy into our hearts, and defined an entire generation through his music. It is my honor to celebrate his legacy with a group of artists who were so inspired by Mr. Miller that they now come together to tell his story through these powerful songs," said Robert W. Schneider.

As one of Motown's first-signed and most successful hitmakers, Ron Miller, whose songs helped to launch several careers, penned some of the label's biggest hits including multiple Grammy Award winner, "For Once in My Life," recorded by more than 700 major label artists and inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Some of his other standards include, "Touch Me in the Morning," "Heaven Help Us All," "A Place in the Sun," "Yester-me, Yester-you, Yesterday," "Someday at Christmas," "Everyone's a Kid at Christmas Time," "Can't We Try," "I've Never Been a Woman Before," "I've Never Been to Me," and "If I Could." In addition to his numerous RIAA Gold and Multi-Platinum records and BMI awards, Ron's songs have been featured in multiple blockbuster and Academy Award-winning films, and on countless television shows throughout the decades as well as in major global ad campaigns.

"My dad is smiling from heaven as we celebrate him. I'm honored to work with the incredible Rob Schneider and the amazingly talented artists and musicians who will share this wonderful evening of love, laughter, and music. I'm so grateful and very fortunate to work with the wonderful, unparalleled team at 54 Below. It's been a long 16-year journey fighting to get my dad's songs back and now, I finally get to tell the real story about this extraordinary, complex, and heroic underdog whose genius talent came shining through to touch so many lives generation after generation and still after his death despite the many challenging circumstances of his own life. Telling his story begins by singing his songs, and we are doing that with love in our hearts October 8 at 54 Below in New York City!"
