William “Smokey” Robinson, Jr. 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. Gordy was impressed with Robinson’s vocals and ambitious songwriting and with his help they released, “Got a Job.” It was the beginning of a successful collaboration and the beginnings of Motown. In 1960, The Miracles recorded their and Motown’s first million selling hit, “Shop Around.”
Between 1960 and 1970, Robinson would produce 26 Top 40 hits with The Miracles including several Top 10 hits such as “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “I Second That Emotion,” and the group’s only number-one pop hit, “The Tears Of A Clown.” Other notable hits include, “Ooo Baby Baby,” and “The Tracks Of My Tears.”
Robinson was also one of the major songwriters and producers for Motown, penning several hit singles such as, “Who’s Loving You,” “My Guy,” “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” “My Girl,” “Get Ready,” and “Ain’t That Peculiar.”
In 1975, Robinson released his most successful solo album, A Quiet Storm, which yielded three hit singles. His classic hit, “Cruisin” peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100.
Robinson was awarded an individual star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1983 and four years later, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. His single “Just to See Her” from the One Heartbeat album was awarded a GRAMMY® Award in 1988 for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. It was his first GRAMMY Award.
