Abstract:

Singer Martha Reeves was born July 18, 1941 in Eufaula, Alabama. Reeves moved with her parents to Detroit, Michigan while still an infant. Reeves attended Russell Elementary School and Northeastern High School, where she was chosen to sing Bach’s Aria. Reeves also sang in her grandfather's church. After graduating in 1959, Reeves worked in sales while performing with Rosalind Ashford and Annette Sterling as the Del-Phis and solo as Martha LaVille, and the group received their break singing back up for Marvin Gaye in 1962. Berry Gordy signed Martha and the Vandellas to Motown Records. The group’s first hit was Come and Get These Memories. The million-selling (Love Is Like A) Heat Wave was followed by a number of other hit singles. Reeves was featured in the film, Standing in the Shadows of Motown. In 1995, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
