Smokey Robinson at the Genesee Theatre

With over 4,000 songs to his credit, Smokey Robinson is a true music legend. He started his journey as frontman for The Miracles, penning such hits as You've Really Got a Hold on Me, Ooo Baby Baby and The Tracks of My Tears. The Miracles went on to dominate R&B music throughout the '60s. Robinson was also chief songwriter for Motown Records, writing hits for other artists, including Marvin Gaye, Mary Wells and The Temptations (The Way You Do the Things You Do, My Girl and Get Ready).

He later turned to an amazing solo career where he continued his tradition of hit making with Being with You, One Heartbeat and Just to See Her, which won a Grammy® in 1988.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer continues to keep the Motown sound alive for a new generation of fans and for baby boomers who grew up listening to his smooth, unmistakable vocals.
