In 1959, Berry Gordy Jr. began the Motown story as a songwriter-producer under a different label with a little encouragement from a friend and fellow music maker. One year later, he incorporated under the name that we know today. The man behind the music gave his first headquarters and studio a fun nickname that was a real hit too.
Over the years, showstoppers such as the Supremes, Michael Jackson, Erykah Badu and even Bruce Willis have signed with the legendary label. Take a walk (or dance!) down memory lane and get reacquainted with Motown artists of yesteryear and today.
