Smokey Robinson founded R&B group The Miracles in the 1950s A chance meeting with record producer Berry Gordy Jr. led to a contract with Motown Records, for whom The Miracles delivered 37 Top 40 hits. Between 1962 and 1966, Robinson was also one of the in-demand songwriters and producers for Motown, and in 1972 he announced a retirement from the stage to focus on his role as Motown's vice president. A year later, he returned to music as a solo artist, and later topped the charts with such hits as "Cruisin'" (1979), "Being With You" (1981) and "Just to See Her" (1987). Robinson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
