Motown Museum Exhibition Features Girl Groups

At the iconic Motown Museum in Detroit, a new exhibit honors the "girl groups" of the 1960's. It's called "Girl Groups: The Grit, The Glamour, The Glory".

Included are records, photos and memorabilia from all of the groups you remember…and one you probably never heard of.

The exhibition remembers The Supremes, The Marvelettes, the Vandellas, and a proficient group of background singers known as The Andantes.

WKAR's Scott Pohl toured the exhibit with the president and CEO of the Motown Museum, Allen Rawls. He says that while the Andantes sang background vocals on thousands of songs, they did release one record of their own.
