Happy Birthday to the Motown legend (and former Detroit council woman)!

If you were to ask me my Top 10 Motown songs, one that would always be at the top of my list, and any song list, really, is “Nowhere To Run” by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas would be up there. From the lyrics to the production, to Martha’s voice, it’s epic, in every sense. That Funk Brothers/Holland-Dozier-Holland production is widescreen. For the cover, we enlist vocal powerhouse, Michael McDonald.
