Smokey Robinson is a legendary singer-songwriter, record producer, record executive, and co-founder of Motown Records. Robinson and his group, the Miracles met Berry Gordy after a failed audition for singer Jackie Wilson’s managers and Gordy was impressed with Robinson’s vocals and ambitious songwriting. With his help they released, “Got a Job,” and it was the beginning of a successful collaboration and the beginnings of Motown. Over the next decade, Robinson and the Miracles produced 26 top 40 hits, including several top 10 hits such as “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “I Second That Emotion,” “The Tears Of a Clown” and others. In 1975, Robinson released his most successful solo album, A Quiet Storm, which yielded three hit singles, “Baby That’s Backatcha,” “The Agony & The Ecstasy,” and “Quiet Storm.”

In recent years, Robinson released the standards album, Timeless Love, Time Flies When You’re Having Fun, Now And Then, and Smokey & Friends. Robinson has been Inducted into the Kennedy Center, awarded an individual star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a second star with The Miracles. He was awarded a medal at the National Medal of Arts, A Heritage Award at the Soul Train Music Awards, and a BET Lifetime Achievement Award.
