September 15, 1938 Sylvia Moyformerly

American songwriter and record producer Sylvia Moyformerly, the first woman at the Detroit-based music label to write and produce for Motown acts. She is probably best known for her songs written with and for Stevie Wonder including ‘Uptight (Everything’s Alright)’ and My ‘Cherie Amour’. Moy died age 78 of complications from pneumonia on April 15, 2017.

Personally I love reading about women who broke through in male dominated industries and broke the rules for younger generations :slight_smile:
