The Great Smokey Robinson
The Great Smokey Robinson
In his career, Motown legend Smokey Robinson, front man of The Miracles, has written or co-written upwards of 4,000 songs, most of them about one thing: love.

At 82, he's still touring and performing, and will soon release "Gasms," his first album in nearly a decade. Correspondent Tracy Smith talks with Robinson (who was named one of the Recording Academy's MusiCares Honorees this year) about becoming a force in the music industry; overcoming racism while touring the Deep South; and ending his drug addiction.
Author, educator, musician, dancer and all around creative type. Founder of "The Happy Now" website and the online jewelry store "Silver and Sage".
