MOTOWN THE MUSICAL.
Gordy founded Motown in 1959, when race relations in America were at a pivotal point – white teens were going crazy for the rhythm and blues produced by black artists, and the time was right for Berry Gordy to make history.
Using his experience working on the Ford Motor Company automotive assembly line, Gordy assembled a team of producers, songwriters, and the greatest house band in the world, the Funk Brothers, and began to assemble Motown’s signature sound.
When “Money (That’s What I Want)” hit the airwaves in 1960, the response across the country was electric. America was ready for a new sound, and Berry Gordy had given it to them.
In 1961, the Miracles sold over a million copies of “Shop Around,” and The Marvelettes spent a week in the first position on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart. Gordy then mentored Diana Ross & The Supremes for crossover success and from 1964 to 1967, ten of their releases landed in the number 1 position on the pop charts, and the group released a mindblowing five number 1 songs in a row.
The Detroit Riots erupted on July 23, 1967 and quickly escalated into one of the deadliest riots in United States history. After the chaos, Berry Gordy began releasing songs that directly addressed civil rights issues and social unrest with songs like “Abraham, Martin, and John” and “May What He Lived For Live”.
