Raynoma Gordy Singleton dies in California - The Detroit News

Monday, December 12, 2016

Singleton died Nov. 11 in California, but in keeping with the very private life she led in recent decades, there was no news release or official obituary. Services were in Canoga Park, California, in mid-November. She was 79.“ ‘Miss Ray’ doesn’t seem to get due recognition in most accounts of Motown’s history, but she surely was a vital figure at the beginning,” said Adam White, author of “Motown: The Sound of Young America” with Motown executive Barney Ales.“This was a woman who could play 11 instruments and had perfect pitch,” White said. “Her formal music training gave structure to those early creative endeavors, and she knew how to bring the best out of young talent. Not to mention the fact that she found the building on West Grand which became Motown’s headquarters.”Along with Gordy’s formidable sisters, Singleton was one of the strong women who helped the failed record store owner build his empire and create a musical genre.“It’s to Berry Gordy’s credit that he gave significant responsibility to strong women, and Ray was one of those,” said historian White. “Even after a spell out in the cold, she eventually came back to Motown. She was family, and there always seemed to be a place for family there.”That “spell out in the cold” began after Motown sales vice president Ales discovered that Singleton, by then estranged from Gordy, was selling bootleg Mary Wells records in New York to help pay her bills.Her tell-all book, “Berry, Me, and Motown,” published in 1990, accused Gordy of not giving her sufficient credit or money and helped deepen the chill between her, Gordy and the Motown family.But the deep freeze didn’t last. In recent years, Singleton flew in to attend at least one Motown Museum fundraiser at the Detroit Marr
