MAD props to Berry Gordy, Suzanne de Passe, and Motown for recognizing, signing, promoting and giving the world the greatest entertainer who has ever lived -- Michael Jackson. For him alone, the world should be eternally thankful. For all the other luminaries, we also give thanks. There'll never be another Motown.

No mention of Tito? MJ would be nothing without him. I read that Tito taught MJ how to dance and choreographed the 'Moonwalk'. Get your facts straight.

Motown? That record label died years ago........
When rap and hip hop came on the scene....
And, Michael Jackson is NOT the greatest entertainer...

Props to Bobby Taylor (of Bobby Taylor and the Vancouvers) for being the person who actually found Michael Jackson and brought the group to the attention of Suzanne DePasse (not Diana Ross - which was merely a publicity ploy).
