Looks like we don't have Norman Jesse Whitfield salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1He wanted Berry Gordy (head of Motown Records) to have Marvin Gaye record "I Heard It Through the Grapevine". This was after Gordy had rejected the idea of recording it with Gaye, the Miracles, or the Isley Brothers. Whitfield gave the song to Gladys Knight and the Pips, who made it Motown's bestselling single at the time. Gordy then agreed to have Gaye record it, and Gaye's version remains Motown's biggest hit single.
2He was a longtime Motown producer and founded his own record label, Whitfield Records, in 1973.
3He co-wrote "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone", "Ball of Confusion", "War", "Smilin' Faces", and "Just My Imagination (Runnin' Away with Me)".
4Survived by his daughter, Irasha; sons, Norman; Michael; Johnnie; and Roland; a brother, Bill; eight grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
51976 Grammy winner for Best Original TV or Motion Picture score for Car Wash (1976).
61972 Grammy winner for Best R&B Song for "Papa Was a Rolling Stone.".
7Co-wrote many songs with Barrett Strong.
8Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2004.
