Brenda Holloway - You've Made Me So Very Happy | Voices of East Anglia

Brenda Holloway - You've Made Me So Very Happy | Voices of East Anglia | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

Strangely enough when Berry Gordy first signed Brenda Holloway to Motown records he hadn’t actually heard her sing such was the captivating nature of her beauty. When Gordy first saw Brenda perform she was lip-synching to Mary Wells classic ‘My Guy’ and he knew as soon as he saw her he had to sign her up; the following day Brenda Holloway had a contract with Motown records.
At the time Gordy was trying to find another Mary Wells and saw a lot of potential in Brenda Holloway – she had the looks and fortunately for Gordy she had the voice, she was also a trained musician playing both the violin and cello which was rare among young black women in 1960s America.

The Guy Who Wrote One Of The Most Famous Songs Of All Time Says US Copyright Law Cheated Him Of Millions

The Guy Who Wrote One Of The Most Famous Songs Of All Time Says US Copyright Law Cheated Him Of Millions | Mod Scene Weekly | Scoop.it

The classic Motown song "Money (That's What I Want)" has generated millions of dollars in royalties since it was first recorded in 1959.

It's appeared in countless movies, and been covered by John Lennon, Iggy Pop and Waylon Jennings among many others.

But a quirk of American copyright law may have cheated songwriter Barrett Strong out of most of it, The New York Times' Larry Rohter reports.
