The story begins in 1983, on the evening of the 25th anniversary celebration of Motown, where Berry is looking back on his career:

At the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, recording stars are gathered to celebrate Motown Records’ 25th anniversary. In a flashback, the young Berry Gordy watches the neighbors dancing in Detroit. In 1957, the adult Berry forms his own record label, and begins to make lifelong friends with recording artists/singers such as Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson. Berry discovers the Supremes and Diana Ross, among many others.

The recording stars sing their popular numbers, including: Diana Ross (“I Hear a Symphony”, “You’re Nobody till Somebody Loves You”, and “You’re All I Need to Get By”), Stevie Wonder, The Supremes (“Buttered Popcorn”, “Where Did Our Love Go”), The Miracles (“Shop Around”), The Marvelettes (“Please Mr. Postman”), Mary Wells (“Bye Bye Baby”/”Two Lovers Medley”), The Temptations, Martha and the Vandellas (“Dancing in the Street”), The Contours (“Do You Love Me”), and The Jackson 5.
