Summary
Singer-songwriter Bobby Rogers was born on February 19, 1940 in Detroit, Michigan. At the age of 15, Rogers joined Smokey Robinson's group, The Matadors. In 1959, he, along with Robinson, Claudette Rogers, Ronald White and Pete Moore, joined Berry Gordy's new Motown label, with the new name, The Miracles. Aside from being a key background vocalist, and early on, the group's choreographer, Rogers helped write several songs for both The Miracles and other Motown acts. These include The Way You Do The Thing You Do, by the Temptations, and The Miracles own hit, Going to A Go-Go. After Smokey Robinson's departure in 1972, Rogers stayed with the group, recording three additional hits, notably 1975's Love Machine. The Miracles were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001, and received a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame in 2009. Rogers passed away on March 3, 2013, at the age of 73.
