History of Motown

Above the front windows of Motown Records’ Detroit headquarters was a sign that read “Hitsville U.S.A.” Placed there by Motown founder Berry Gordy soon after his company moved into the modest home at 2648 W. Grand Blvd. Founded on Jan. 12, 1959, Motown quickly became another Detroit factory.  While the Big Three produced automobiles, Motown assembled the soul and pop classics that changed America.

Motown went on to achieve widespread international success, and played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as it achieved huge crossover success and has had a widespread, lasting effect on the music industry.

Throughout the Sixties, Motown released a catalog of songs that cannot be rivaled. “You’ve Really Got a Hold On Me,” “Heat Wave,” “Dancing in the Street,” “Tracks of My Tears,” “Where Did Our Love Go,” “My Guy,” “My Girl,” “Baby Love,” “Get Ready” and “Stop! In the Name of Love,” to name a few.  These and many more unforgettable classics will be featured!
