It's impossible to overstate the influence Motown singer/songwriter/vice-president had on the music of the 1960s and 1970s. He was both the face of Motown's flagship group, and one of the label's primary songwriters - churning out million sellers like they were corvettes on the line - and changing music forever.
It would be easy to list the many bands and artists who owe their career to Smokey Robinson. But rather than waste words explaining why its worthwhile to see this living legend Thursday at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, I'm posting a series of videos of featuring both Smokey's golden throat and a few of his friends making Smokey's tunes their own.
Smokey Robinson appears Thursday, April 14th at the Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee blvd, West Palm Beach. Tickets are $32-$147.25.
