Smokey Robinson, American singer, songwriter record producer and record executive, founding member and front man of the Motown vocal group The Miracles was born William Robinson Jr. to an African-American father and a mother of African-American and French ancestry into a poor family in the North End area of Detroit, Michigan ("Motown"), United States. His ancestry is part Nigerian, French, Scandinavian, Portuguese, and Cherokee. His uncle Claude gave him the nickname "Smokey Joe" when he was a child. Smokey Robinson served as The Miracle's chief songwriter and producer. Robinson led the group from its 1955 origins as the Five Chimes until 1972 when he announced a retirement from the group to focus on his role as Motown's vice president. However, Robinson returned to the music industry as a solo artist the following year. Following the sale of Motown Records in 1988, Robinson left the company in 1990. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. Robinson was awarded the 2016 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for his lifetime contributions to popular music. Bob Dylan once quipped that Smokey Robinsons was America's greatest living poet.
