Berry Gordy Jr.

If you know the music of Diana Ross and the Supremes, the Jackson 5, the Temptations, the Four Tops, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, and Stevie Wonder (just to name a few), then you know Berry Gordy Jr. He is the founder of the legendary Motown Records and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee behind all those superstars and their Billboard hits.

The music icon talks about his life growing up in Detroit, his early experiences as a songwriter and, of course, the rise of Motown. Plus, Berry opens up about his love affair with Diana Ross, their behind-the-scenes stories and spinning out some of music's most recognizable number one hits.
