    Legendary R&B singer Smokey Robinson performed at the Cushman and Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center on Thursday, December 11th.

    Robinson’s career spans over four decade and he was called America’s “greatest living poet” by Bob Dylan. A native of Detroit, Michigan, Robinson founded The Miracles while still in high school. It was Berry Gordy’s first vocal group, and it was at Robinson’s suggestion that Gordy started the Motown Record dynasty. The Miracles’ single of Robinson’s “Shop Around” became Motown’s first  Number 1 hit on the R&B singles chart. Some other hits that Robinson wrote for the Miracles were classics like “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Ooo Baby Baby,” “The Tracks of My Tears,” “Going to a Go-Go,” “More Love,” “Tears of a Clown,” which was co-written with Stevie Wonder, and “I Second That Emotion.”
