SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) — Bobby Rogers, a founding member of Motown
group The Miracles and a songwriting collaborator with Smokey Robinson,
died Sunday morning at his suburban Detroit home.

Motown Museum board member Allen Rawls said Rogers had been ill for
several years.

Rogers formed the group in 1956 with cousin Claudette Rogers, Pete Moore,
Ronnie White and Robinson. Their hits included "Shop Around," ”You’ve
Really Got a Hold on Me," ”The Tracks of My Tears," ”Going to a Go-Go,"
”I Second That Emotion" and "The Tears of a Clown."

Rogers and The Miracles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
in 2012. He was too ill to attend the ceremony.
