Smokey Robinson to Read Poetry at El Portal

The singer of Motown fame has written a series of autobiographical poems.

Music legend Smokey Robinson is best known for being one of Motown's greatest, but this weekend he'll be sharing his literary talents with North Hollywood audiences.

In his one-man show, Words, playing at the El Portal Theatre Friday and Saturday, Robinson will read six long-form and autobiographical poems, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"He’s been writing poetry for as long as he can remember,” Brian French, Robinson's producer, told Pop & Hiss. “It’s been a passion of his for a very long time. It’s just that most of his poetry has been used for his music."
