The Motown label was founded by Berry Gordy in 1959 in Detroit and signed many, many names that went on to find fame and fortune. We take a look at some of the best Motown artists and marvel in the success of the Motown label!
Gladys Knight and the Pips did not achieve widespread success until 1966, after signing to Motown Records. Their 1967 single, "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", provided a career-making breakthrough. It became a number 2 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and a number one R&B hit for six weeks. The record sold 2.5 million copies, and at the time was Motown's best-selling single ever.
