In 2017, Billboard
Magazine named The Temptations “the greatest R&B group of all time.” In 1960, they were five young guys on the streets of Detroit when they were discovered by Berry Gordy
, who signed them to his legendary new label. After 24 attempts, they finally had a hit, and the rest is history: how they met, how they rose, the groundbreaking heights they hit and how, as the nation fell into civil unrest, personal and political conflicts threatened to tear the group apart.
