What's interesting now is Ms. Reeves's current job--she has a seat on the Detroit City Council!

I just want to give Martha And The Vandellas some love here. IMO, they were the most "rock'n'roll" of all the Motown acts of the '60s. A strong, energetic powerhouse sound with their songs like "Heatwave", "Nowhere To Run", "I'm Ready For Love," etc. So glad they finally got in, something of a crime that it took them so long. IMO, more deserving than the Supremes, and maybe even the Four Tops. I love their sounds, and considering they used the same musicians as most of the other Motown acts, the fact that their songs has a uniquely distinct sound from the other Motown acts says volumes to me. My favorite Motown act of all time.
