Motown Founder Berry Gordy Jr. Is Retiring.
On Sunday, Barry Gordy Jr. accepted the Motown Legacy Award during the Hitsville Honors ceremony at Orchestra Hall in Detroit. During his acceptance, he announced that he would be retiring.
“As I stand here I’m back where I started. I have come full circle, so it is only appropriate that…I should announce my retirement,” he said. “For years I have dreamt about it, talked about it, threatened it and tried to do it. In fact, this has gone on for so many years that those trying to help me retire (have) retired themselves. It is time for me to spend my next 60 years reflection on how fortunate I am, how much I appreciate and love all of you and how wonderful my life has been, and will continue to be.”
Gordy founded Motown in Detroit 60 years ago.

Simon Biles not only earned herself a spot on her fifth straight world team next month in Stuttgart, Germany, but she’s also set to tie the legendary Kerri Strug as the only U.S. women to compete at worlds during five different years, per NBC Sports.
“Biles claimed the lone automatic world team spot by winning the all-around,” NBC Sports explains. “The rest will be chosen via committee.
