About Smokey Robinson

Smokey Robinson started honing his musical talents while he was still in high school by forming a doo-wop group called the Five Chimes. However, it was in 1955 when Robinson formed his group, The Miracles, and they began touring the local club circuit in the Detroit area. A couple of years later, The Miracles teamed up with songwriter Berry Gordy, and they released their debut single, "Got a Job." Shortly after, Berry Gordy created his own record label, which would later become Motown records, and the team went to work to begin recording new material.

Backed by Berry Gordy's record label, The Miracles went on to release a number of hits, one of the first of which was "Shop Around." The song topped the Billboard R&B singles chart, and it reached number 2 on the Hot 100 chart. The song was later named by Rolling Stone as one of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time." With the success of "Shop Around" behind them, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles went on to create a number of hits throughout the rest of the decade, including "I Second That Emotion," "You've Really Got a Hold on Me," "Baby Baby Don't Cry" and "Tears of a Clown."

1972 marked Robinson's departure from the band, butafter a brief retirement, he released his debut solo album, "Smokey," in 1973. "Smokey" produced the popular song, "Baby Come Close" and "Sweet Harmony," which was a tribute to The Miracles. He followed up in 1974 with "Pure Smokey," which included the hit song "Virgin Man," but it was his next album, "A Quiet Storm," that would blow critics and fans away. The album is now considered to be one of the most acclaimed soul albums of the decade, and it spawned the hit songs "The Agony & The Ecstasy," "Baby That's Backatcha," and "Quiet Storm."

Later, Robinson released his groundbreaking album, "One Heartbeat," which reached the top of the Billboard R&B albums chart, and it launched the top 10 singles, "One Heartbeat" and "Just to See Her." Shortly after the release of "One Heartbeat," Robinson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, representing the culmination of his accomplishments as a legendary singer and songwriter.


Smokey Robinson's Breakthrough Album

Beginning with his work as the front man for The Miracles, Smokey Robinson became one of the most popular vocalists and songwriters during the height of his popularity. With The Miracles, Robinson led the band to success, starting with their first hit, "Got a Job."

A string of successful albums and hits followed, and by 1973, Robinson was ready to embark on his solo career. His album, "A Quiet Storm," help to establish his place in music history, and he created waves yet again in the music world with his highly acclaimed album, "One Heartbeat." The album earned Robinson a Grammy Award in the category of Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for the song "Just to See Her."
