The two-day celebration of Smokey Robinson’s 50-year career—and his selection as the 2016 recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song—began in the nation’s capital with a touching trip down the keyboard of George Gershwin’s piano and ended with a rollicking concert of his greatest hits.
On Nov. 15, Robinson took his first tour of the Library of Congress’ historic Thomas Jefferson Building and viewed some rare and surprising items in the Library’s vast collections. Among them was Robinson’s first song ever submitted for copyright, “I Cry.” Registered in 1958, the song was co-written by Berry Gordy, who joined Robinson on a tour of the nation’s largest library.
During his visit, Robinson sat down at the Gershwin piano, housed in the Library’s ongoing exhibit, “Here to Stay: The Legacy of George and Ira Gershwin,” and talked about his work and the Gershwin legacy. “The Gershwins wrote music when the song was king,” the Grammy Award-winner told Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “For me to even be mentioned in the same breath with the Gershwins as a songwriter is just incredible.” Robinson tearfully recalled how Gordy mentored him and helped him achieve his dream of becoming a singer and songwriter.
