Motown was about music for all people - white and black, blue and green, cops and the robbers. I was reluctant to have our music alienate anyone.
If I settle a case out of court, it's because I love the person.
Whenever I came up against presidents of other companies, I was always smarter, because I was from the streets.
I have this ability to find this hidden talent in people that sometimes even they didn't know they had.
I've discovered that Motown and Broadway have a lot in common - a family of wonderfully talented, passionate, hardworking young people, fiercely competitive but also full of love and appreciation for the work, for each other and for the people in the audience.
