Motown legend Smokey Robinson will bring his classic hits to Huntington with a performance at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center.
The concert is part of the Marshall Artists Series. Robinson shot to fame in 1960 with his group The Miracles, which became the first vocal group on the future Motown Records label.
Robin was the chief songwriter for the group, penning tunes such as "Shop Around," You've Really Got A Hold on Me," "The Tracks of My Tears," "Tears of a Clown" and "I Second That Emotion."
Robinson later became vice president of Motown Records, serving as in-house producer, talent scout and songwriter. He wrote and produced hits for various artists including "My Girl," "Get Ready" and "My Guy."
He has received the Grammy Living Legend Award, NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award, an honorary doctorate from Howard University, the National Medal of Arts Award, and Kennedy Center honors. He has also been inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters' Hall of Fame.
