When Music Was *Music!*

Brenda Holloway, fifties and sixties Motown Records star possessed a beautiful voice and Berry Gordy hoped she would be the next Mary Wells. While at Motown Brend recorded successful songs such as Every Little Bit Hurts, When I’m Gone, and You Make Me So Very Happy.

Brenda Holloway’s career with Motown was another example of studio execs placing a talented star on the back burner while they developed the stars predicted to have the most crossover appeal. By the time The Supremes arrived Brenda Holloway was leaving.

Listen to this great music by a legend, and if you’re at work, don’t dance to hard in your chair.
