Spinners members – past and present – Jessie Peck, Ronnie Moss, G.C. Cameron, Henry Fambrough and Marvin Taylor
The Spinners, a famous Motown soul group, made a heartwarming return to the Motown Museum to donate an incredible collection of stage outfits and shoes. The museum’s archives were grateful to receive over 375 stage costumes and 200 pairs of shoes.
The visit was attended by notable figures of the group, such as Henry Fambrough, who helped co-found the group, and G.C. Cameron, a former lead vocalist. These legends were treated like returning heroes and had a special tribute installed in their honor on Hitsville’s iconic picture window.
The CEO of the Motown Museum, Robin Terry, emphasized the significance of continuing to grow their archive of Motown memorabilia and artifacts. “Welcome home,” Terry told the entourage, which included three members of the current Spinners lineup. “We’re honoring you and thanking you for continuing this legacy.”
The Spinners, who joined Motown Records in 1964, were a trailblazing R&B success of that era. They famously recorded the hit song “It’s a Shame” written by Stevie Wonder in 1970. The group originated from Ferndale, and will soon enter the 2023 Class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Fambrough, the last living original member, will be inducted along with the late bandmates Billy Henderson, Pervis Jackson, Bobbie Smith and Philippé Wynne in an upcoming ceremony on November 3rd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
