Berry Gordy, Jr. is an American record producer and songwriter. He is best known as the founder of the Motown record label, as well as its many subsidiaries. Berry Gordy, Jr. was born to the middle-class family of Berry Gordy II a.k.a. Berry Gordy, Sr. who had relocated to Detroit from Oconee County, Georgia, in 1922. The first Berry Gordy was the son of a white plantation owner in Georgia, and his female slave. Berry Gordy, Sr. was lured to Detroit by the many job opportunities for black people offered by booming automotive businesses. He developed his interest in music by writing songs and opening the 3-D Record Mart, a record store featuring jazz music. The store was unsuccessful and Gordy sought work at the Lincoln-Mercury plant, but his family connections put him in touch with Al Green, owner of the Flame Show Bar Talent Club, where he met singer Jackie Wilson.
