About this item

Celebrating the first quarter century of the little company that founder Berry Gordy Jr. turned into Hitsville, U.S.A., his history-making success story deserved a history-making concert MOTOWN 25: YESTERDAY, TODAY, FOREVER! It debuted on NBC on May 16, 1983, and the morning after became an immediate water-cooler sensation. The highlight that caused the most talk was Michael Jackson s world premiere of his moonwalk (aka six seconds that changed the world ) but MOTOWN 25 had an abundance of other buzz-worthy moments, too reunions by the Miracles, the Supremes and the Jackson 5; the first battle of the bands between Four Tops and The Temptations; and the hottest comedian in the world at the time, Richard Pryor, as host. MOTOWN 25 was not simply a 2-hour TV special.
