The Miracles formed at Northern High School in Detroit during 1955. The original group consisted of lead singer Smokey Robinson, Emerson Rogers, Bobby Rogers, Ronnie White, and Bobby Moore. Emmerson Rogers left before their first hit and was replaced by Robinson’s future wife, Claudette Rogers.
The Miracles, with and without Smokey Robinson as the front man, would place 46 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart, 1959-1975.
“The Tracks Of My Tears” was one of the group’s and Robinson’s signature songs. Released during the early summer of 1965, it rose to number 16 on the BILLBOARD Pop Chart.
After leaving the Miracles Robinson embarked on a aolo career that has lasted down to the present day.
