Details:A blend of gospel, blues, and pop, Motown began in Detroit in the late 1950s and quickly became “The Sound of Young America,” crashing the American pop charts and challenging the Beatles-led British Invasion. The visionary of Motown, Berry Gordy, Jr., a former prizefighter and songwriter who believed that talent could be found on nearly every Detroit streetcorner, brought the iconic sound into the mainstream. From Motown came the Supremes, the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, the Jackson 5, and many others. Collectively, they changed the musical direction of the nation.
