On this day, January 12th in 1959, Tamla Records –which was later renamed Motown Records in 1960 was founded by Berry Gordy in Detroit, Michiga.

All it took was an $800 loan and a vision for 29-year-old Gordy to turn Motown Records into the most famous music label ever! Born & raised right here in Detroit, he became one of the most powerful men in music.

Happy Birthday, Motown!
