“Motown founder Berry Gordy gave Claudette [Rogers Robinson] the official title of the “First Lady of Motown”, as noted in his autobiography, because, as a member of the Miracles,
(Motown’s first group and first recording act), she was the first female
artist ever signed to a Motown-affiliated record label (Tamla).“ [Wikipedia]
