    While it was the first single on the Motown label to become a hit, he did not compose ‘Money.’
    As a ‘one-hit wonder,’ he never became a star in his own right.
    The capital from ‘Money’ laid the foundation for Berry Gordy Jr. to start Motown Records.
    He left Motown when it relocated from Detroit to Los Angeles.
    He was a key figure in the career of a singer known as the Detroit Diva.
