Smokey Robinson is a Miracle

William (Smokey) Robinson (19 februari 1940, Detroit) is één van Motown's grootste talenten.
Hij ontmoette eind' 50-er jaren in Detroit Berry Gordy, de stichter van het Motown-label, en werd met zijn groep The Miracles de eerste hitleverancier van het jonge label.

De eerste Amerikaanse hiit was "You really got a hold on me" uit 1962. Robinson werd ook de eerste romantische stem van de Motown-Sound, in tegenstelling tot The Temptations.
Zijn "My Guy / My Girl" werd een klassieker. Diana Ross and The Supremes scoorden er een hit mee in de vrouwelijke versie, The Temptations met de mannelijke versie.
Soullegende Smokey Robinson had er als vice-voorzitter van Motown Records (sinds 1961) ook belang bij om hits te scoren. Zo schreef hij voor Marvin Gaye "Tears of a Clown" (1970).

Halverwege de 70-er jaren had hij een probleem met de Britse popband Smokey. Hij wilde niet dat zij zijn voornaam zouden gebruiken, en hun spelling veranderde in "Smokie"...
Robinson werd ooit door Bob Dylan "the greatest living poet" genoemd.
