After 40 years in business and armed with some of the greatest songs ever written, The Miracles are still attracting fans around the world. They will perform an unforgettable concert at 8:15 p.m. Saturday, July 14 in Hoover Auditorium.

Of the many famous groups of that era, The Miracles were the very first group to sign to Motown Records. With hits like “Shop Around,” “I Second that Emotion,” “The Tears of a Clown,” “Love Machine” and “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” the group was able to grow the popularity of the Motown sound.

In 1956, childhood friends Bobby Rogers, Smokey Robinson, Claudette Robinson, Ronnie White and Pete Moore became The Miracles and embarked on a career that would surpass their wildest dreams.

In 1971, Robinson announced his retirement to spend time with his growing family. Billy Griffin replaced him, and The Miracles continued to be successful, recording with renowned producers such as Marvin Gaye, Willie Hutch and Freddie Perren.

Upon the departure of Griffin in 1978, the group auditioned a young man right out of college, by the name of Sydney Justin, to be the lead vocalist. But, at the time, he had a prior commitment to play in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams.

After his retirement from football in 1985, Justin signed with the vocal pop group Shalamar before he would once again cross paths with The Miracles in 1994, this time accepting a position in the group.

With the new lead vocalist, whose style is reminiscent of Robinson and Marvin Gaye, The Miracles embarked on a second wave of success.

Justin and The Miracles have made television appearances on “The Today Show” and “Good Morning America." They have performed in several Las Vegas casinos and have traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe with the United States Air Force Orchestra.

In February 1997, they received the Pioneer Award from the Rhythm & Blues Foundation, and a star was placed on the Hollywood Boulevard Walk of Fame in their honor.

Some of their recent recordings include a greatest hits album, a live performance album and a Christmas album, which includes holiday classics, as well as original songs.

Today, The Miracles lineup includes Sydney Justin, Kerry Justin, Cordell Conway and Erin Swindell.
