The First Lady of Motown

The Claudette Robinson Story

First Lady of Motown Entertainment and Capria Entertainment’s feature documentary The First Lady of Motown: The Story of Claudette Robinson is currently in production. Dubbed “The First Lady of Motown” by the label’s founder Berry Gordy, the documentary tells the story of Claudette Robinson, the sole female member of the first group signed to Motown – The Miracles. Along with original members Smokey Robinson, Ronnie White, Pete Moore, Bobby Rogers and
guitarist Marv Tarplin, The Miracles paved the way for a generation of artists like Marvin Gaye,
The Supremes, The Four Tops, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and many others. Together, they put the Motor City on the map and changed music forever. The film features rare photos and poignant interviews with friends, family members and Motown
icons such as Smokey Robinson, Kim Weston, Mary Wilson, Janie Bradford and Mickey Stevenson. Scheduled for release in 2019, The First Lady of Motown is part of an upcoming release of multimedia content that also includes a TV series based on Ms. Robinson’s life (in development) and her highly anticipated biography. Directed by David de Bartolomé, the documentary was scripted by Claudette Robinson, David de Bartolomé, Justine Fischoff and Wesley Cuttler.

Ms. Robinson also serves as Executive Producer along with her children Berry and Tamla Robinson. Producers include David de Bartolomé, Lyric Ontiveros, Ramon Huggins, Justine Fischoff and Wesley Cuttler.
In 2019, Motown will celebrate its 60th anniversary. The Miracles – led by Sydney Justin – will continue the Miracles Legacy.
