    That did my heart good! Martha is really enjoying herself and is sharp as a tack!
    That Hollywood crowd sure knows how to throw a party....nobody thought to play a little DANCIN IN THE STREET? Luckily, Stevie came in just the right mood to brighten the festivities!



    And at 46:12 when they slung that plastic chair out for Martha then left her there to sit herself down in it on her own! good grief !!

    Otis was likely touring with the Temptations. Brenda... when's the last time she's been in the public?

    more "chairgate":


    at 6:00 - Martha is pissed that someone stole her chair. ---Who took my chair? Gimme my chair!!
    at 46:00- Berry G almost knocks Martha and her hat out of her chair.
    at 23:10 - Smokey Robinson is dismissive of someone trying to help him from his chair.

    Seems newsworthy that Berry Gordy speaks publicly here for the first time since [?] yet Motown devotees come away from it with nothing??

    My takeaway is Mr. Gordy is in fine physical and mental shape and attended with the right supportive attitude. Motown [and getting out from it when he did] has done him very well. He seems to be in a very good place, at least on this day !!

    He brought his A game!



    unlike Stevie Wonder.
