Our Motown family has lost Barrett Strong; a beloved brother and extraordinary songwriter. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones. He collaborated with Norman Whitfield on writing many of our award-winning chart hits from the 60’s and 70’s, such as Grammy-winning,:
Cloud Nine,’
‘Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.’
‘I Can’t Get Next to You,’
‘Psychedelic Shack,’
‘Ball of Confusion (That’s What the World is Today),’
‘Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me),’
‘I Heard It Through the Grapevine.’
