Berry Gordy founded the most influential record label in the history of American music. Motown Records accounted for over 100 #1 hit songs and Berry Gordy’s eye for talent launched artists like Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson. Berry was a songwriter in the late 50’s and with encouragement from Smokey Robinson and a loan from his family, he started Motown and changed the music industry.
But, in addition to his signed artists, Berry has 9 children with six different women. Which two of his children not only recorded and released music, both artists hit #1 on the Billboard pop charts? His son, Kennedy, topped the charts in 1983 under the name, Rockwell, with his one hit wonder smash, Somebody’s Watching Me featuring Michael Jackson on backup. His youngest child, Stefan, is known as Redfoo and he’s half of the duo, LMFAO, who hit #1 with Party Rock Anthem and Sexy And I Know It.
