TamLa Robinson, daughter to King of Motown, Smokey Robinson, shared a picture of herself and her father posing next to Berry Gordy, her godfather and Smokey's partner.
In the spirit of throwbacks, R&B legend Smokey Robinson's daughter, TamLa Robinson, shared an image of herself and her father at the screening of a movie. The picture also featured Berry Gordy.
The image that was shared featured Smokey wearing a metallic blue suit and vintage tie with a white shirt. He had a beaming smile on his face as he looked at the camera, and TamLa had her hands around his neck.
Standing beautiful in the middle of the group image was TamLa who was also dressed in a blue suit; however, hers was a powder blue shade. She paired it with a black patterned shirt.
The last person in the picture shared was Gordy. He had on a navy blue suit for the occasion, and like Smokey, he opted for a white shirt coupled with a vintage tie. Captioning the post, TamLa said:
"I'm Back... ?? This is one of my favorite photos with two of my favorite people. Say hello to My Father & My God Father[sic]."
Followers of TamLa took to the comments section to leave their thoughts, with most of them complimenting their looks. Someone stated that they all looked good in the different shades of blue suits they had on.
Smokey founded the R&B group The Miracles, which delivered 37 Top 40 hits for Motown Records.
Another person expressed that it did not look like Smokey and Gordy were aging while acknowledging that they loved the relationship between TamLa and her father.
Smokey, who is a father to six beautiful daughters, created the Father-Daughter Day in 2017, which is now held every October. The holiday has been accepted into the Chase's Calendar of Events.
Speaking on why this holiday is important, the 80-year-old music veteran said the connection between a father and his daughter would always have a tremendous impact. He also added:
"We know that all parental relationships are important...but the father/daughter bond is unique and one that is dear to my heart."
Known as the "King of Motown," Smokey founded the R&B group The Miracles, which delivered 37 Top 40 hits for Motown Records. He, alongside Gordy, started the company Motown which has produced a lot of hit music.
While one would expect Smokey to slow down as he ages, the songwriter and singer has been even more active. Earlier in the year, he opened up about having a lot of childlike energy that kept him on edge to work.
