When Smokey Sings - ABC

ABC's tribute to "The King of Motown" Smokey Robinson.

Rockit Trivia: This song was about Smokey Robinson's influence on the music industry. The single went to five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. For the week of October 3, 1987, it dropped to eight as Smokey Robinson's single "One Heartbeat" was peaking at ten. It's interesting that one song on the charts was tributing another artist who was on the charts at the same time, indeed it's probably never happened before or since.
