Hanging from the roof of a suburban house in Detroit is a sign that reads, ‘Hitsville USA.’ It is here that the young, gifted and black, from Marvin Gaye to Michael Jackson, began their journey to superstardom.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Motown records, this official documentary tells the story of how Berry Gordy Jr built his ‘hit factory’ after being inspired by working on the production lines at Ford Motors.
Featuring rare performances, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, this affectionate portrait offers insight into the history and cultural impact of Motown Records.
