Motown luminaries honor the legendary Maxine Powell

She taught the Supremes how to get in and out of a car gracefully in a tight chiffon skirt, coached Motown’s singers to smile and keep their eyes open while singing, and is responsible for much of the polish associated with Motown acts.

On Monday evening, the Motown Historical Museum and many of the label’s artists, including Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves, Duke Fakir of the Four Tops and Cal Street of the Velvelettes honored Maxine Powell at a reception for friends and supporters of the museum at 2648 W. Grand Blvd. in Detroit.
