Thanks, Subby. Nice to hear about the people behind the scenes who made it all happen.

That is easily one of the prettiest, most ingenious songs to come out of the sixties. I am ashamed to say that despite it being a big part of the soundtrack of my life, I never bothered to find out who wrote it.

I thought for a second Stevie Wonder had died. Don't DO that!

Imho cowriting I Was Made To Love Her was her best Stevie Wonder song. It soars.

Nice catalog. I hope she kept her royalties.

Doubt it. Motown was notorious with their contracts.

Got a feeling Stevie has a eulogy planned.

Rip.  I wish more people knew about you and Cindy Walker, and so many other wonderful female songwriters.

Minorities of all kinds have always made meaningful contributions to this society, but so much of it goes unnoticed.  It's a terrible shame, but that's a conversation for another day.

RIP Sylvia Moy.

What they did at Motown was the stuff of legends.

Great picture. also note a couple of the Funk Brothers in the background, Robert White on guitar, Earl VanDyke on keys and I think half hidden is James Jamerson on bass. The greatest bass player. What a line up.

RIP Ms Moy quite a resume.

No one really cares except us music people, and most of us older ones already know.

But in general, yeah.

 I second that. Truly great song. I'm embarrassed I didn't know who she was, but her songs are all amazing.   Glad I read that article.

Motown was the best of the 60's - nice to see Sylvia Moy was there to make Stevie Wonder's career.  What an amazing woman!  Thanks for finding this, subby
