One Day at Detroit’s Motown Sound or “Hitsville U.S.A.” is time well spent at Motown’s first headquarters. Motown Records (1959) receives thousands of visitors each year. They stop by to be wowed by the Motown Sound Museum. Berry Gordy’s legendary Motown inspired the music industry and society in general. It united a racially divided country and segregated society, touching a diversity of people around the world. The studio and what it created was one of the most amazing accomplishments of its time.
Some of the well-known success stories include “Diana Ross & the Supremes, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson & the Jackson 5, the Marvelettes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Lionel Richie & the Commodores, and Teena Marie”.
