Motown’s Greatest Artists Of All Time

February 27, 2013 ‐ By Diamond Newman

There was a time when Motown Records owned and ran the music scene. You couldn’t turn on a radio without hearing the collaborative harmonies of The Temptations or the fabulosity of Diana Ross. These artists made you shake your hips and groove before it was even acceptable. You’ll also be surprised that some of these artists weren’t even conceived when the famous record company was at its height. Check out the 15 best artists in Motown’s history!



Marvin Gaye

He had good looks, sex appeal and music that made you think and want to make love all at the same time. With hits like “What’s Going On?” and “Sexual Healing,” Mr. Gaye helped Motown remain at the top.

    702 but no DeBarge, Rick, or Teena? Come on now …

  • Great list though, surprised to see 702 on there! Not because I don’t agree just because I forgot that they were Motown. Miss them.

  • I would not forget Syreeta Wright. She was fabulous.
