In 1959, Barry Gordy of Detroit, Michigan started a record company titled "Motown Records." Short for the city's nickname, "Motor Town," Motown soon became a style of music that would rock American airwaves for years to come. Characteristically owning groovy and soulful sounds with a strong, steady four-beat tempo and the frequent use of strings, it was easy to see why everyone began to love Motown so quickly!

Motown housed musicians and bands like The Commodores, The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Supremes, and solo singers like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. The catch we're about to give you, however, is this - Do you know which of these Motown artists come straight from Detroit, Michigan? Take this quiz and prove it to us!
