"It is my honor to be recognized by the GRAMMY Museum's Legends of Motown series. I am very grateful that the GRAMMY Museum has provided a platform for fans to experience the history of the Miracles and include items from my private collection to be displayed. The Miracles along with Mr. Berry Gordy and Motown have become a part of musical history that changed the landscape of popular music, soul and R&B to foster positive and progressive race relations in America and around the world. Thank you for the amazing opportunity."
Legends Of Motown: Celebrating The Miracles will uncover the remarkable career of The Miracles, Motown's first successful recording act, through artifacts from the personal collection of Claudette Robinson, the first female artist to ink a record deal with Motown, therefore known as the "First Lady of Motown." The exhibit will offer an intimate look into the group's early career and their later rise as Smokey Robinson and The Miracles.
Legends Of Motown: Celebrating The Miracles will be on display on the Museum's third floor through summer 2017. The exhibit features:
- rare photographs from the personal collection of Claudette Robinson
- an assortment of performance costumes worn throughout The Miracles' career, including some from the personal collection of Smokey Robinson
- and more!
