Smokey Robinson

“We’re not only talking about the future of music. We’re talking about the future of our country.”

Once pronounced by Bob Dylan as America’s “greatest living poet,” acclaimed singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson’s career spans over four decades of hits. The Motown legend received Music Will (formerly Little Kids Rock)’s “Rocker of the Year Award” in 2016 and shared his passion for keeping music education in schools. After joining a 12 year old student in a duet of “My Girl,” Smokey performed “Get Ready,” a hit he wrote for The Temptations, along with Music Will (formerly Little Kids Rock) students from New York City and Philadelphia.
