Marvin's 1st Audition for Motown
« Thread started on: Jul 30th, 2008, 06:07am »
what's makes Marvin seem so cool to me is that when he first auditioned for Berry Gordy at Motown Records, he played it very cool and suave. many of the other artists seemed to have showed their nervousness to Berry, but not Marvin. He made Berry come to him.
They say he played the piano that day, like there was nothing to it. Like he was destined for fame..

Yeah I was mesmerized after they said that Berry was the one who came to him rather than Marvin doing it because Marvin was so focused on playing the piano that he didn't bother to stop to meet Berry. That moment actually sparked what their relationship would become in 20 years.
