Motown Mogul Berry Gordy Donates $4M to Museum

Motown Records founder Berry Gordy has donated $4 million to expand the Motown Museum’s educational and other programming, as well as its theater and exhibition spaces.

Gordy founded the legendary Detroit record label that popularized soul and pop music artists such as the Supremes, the Temptations, the Four Tops, the Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye.

The Detroit museum was founded by Gordy’s late sister Esther Gordy Edwards, a businesswoman who served as chief executive of Motown Records in the mid-1960s.
