More on Barrett Strong:
Writing songs since a very young age, he was introduced to Berry Gordy by family friend Jackie Wilson and began his work in the music business at the tender age of fifteen. His first big hit with the Motown label was 'Money,' which he sang himself. Strong then teamed up with another Motown legend, Norman Whitfield and the two became a dynamic songwriting and production duo that helped tailor songs to fit the unique talents of Motown greats Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Jerry Butler, The Dells, Chubby Checker, and many more. The timeless magic of Strong & Whitfield is still heard today in songs such as Papa Was A Rolling Stone, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, I Wish It Would Rain, Cloud Nine, Just My Imagination, and Smiling Faces to name a few of their smash hits.
