About The Miracles

The Miracles were an American rhythm and blues group that were among the first successful recording acts for Motown Records in the 1960s. Founded in 1955 by Smokey Robinson, the band's most notable lineup included that of Robinson, Ronnie White, Pete Moore, Bobby Rogers, Claudette Robinson and Marv Tarplin. The group first began recording under the End Records label in 1958, releasing the song, 'Got a Job', before the formation of Tamla Records in 1959, where they released their first charted single, 'Bad Girl', which was nationally distributed by Chess Records. Following the formation of Motown Records in 1960, the group charted with 'Way Over There' before returning to the Tamla subsidiary and recorded the label's first million-selling hit single, 'Shop Around', in 1960.
