Otis Williams makes good on his vow to never quit The Temptations

Otis Williams was one of countless teenagers nationwide who formed doo-wop singing groups in the 1950s. But he was lucky that he lived in Detroit, where his amazing ear for talent paid off quickly when then-nascent Motown Records was formed and made him one of its first artists. 
When Motown head Berry Gordy paired the Temptations with rising young songwriter Smokey Robinson, magic was formed. With songs like “My Girl” and “Get Ready” at their disposal, the Temptations took the world by storm with a classic lineup of vocalists – including David Ruffin, Eddie Kendrick, Paul Williams and Melvin Franklin – that resulted in dozens of hits that are still played today and five Grammys.
