Hitsville, U.S.A. was the nickname given to Motown records in Detroit, Michigan. The building was purchased by Barry Gordy for $800 in 1959. The business grew from a small start-up business in to the largest independent record company in the world. Gordy took local kids from the neighborhood and turned them into some of the biggest singing stars of that time.
Last summer, hubby and I took a road trip and visited Motown Historical Museum. We had a chance to sit at the piano where Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye wrote their greatest hits.
