 Kerry Gordy Biography

Kerry Gordy (affectionately known as KG) was born in Detroit Michigan the same year that his father, Berry Gordy, started Motown Records. He grew up around all of the major stars such as Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson. He started in the mail room at Motown and worked in every division from A&R to Publishing and Marketing to Business Affairs. While at Motown, he wrote and produced songs for The Temptations, The Four Tops and Billy Preston. The first hit he had as an executive with Motown was with his brother Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me”. KG was also the leader of the 1980’s teen Idol band, Apollo.

In the early 90’s, KG and Al Bell teamed up at Bellmark Records and released Tag Team’s “Whomp! (There It Is)”, which was the Quadruple Platinum #1 grossing single of 1993. KG ran Prince’s company, Paisley Park Records and has been awarded 9 platinum albums. He was also totally responsible for the international number one smash hit, “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” when Prince left Warner Brothers, started his new independent N.P.G. label and changed his name to “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince”. KG also produced and co-wrote George Clinton’s comeback hit, “Paint The White House Black”, which included Rapper Ice Cube, super producer Dr. Dre and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

KG was the Vice President of A&R for Warner Brothers Records, the #1 record company at the time, with a roster of 87 artists under their Urban Division. KG was also a judge for the Miss USA Pageant, where Carole Gist became the first African American to win and also the first crowned from Michigan.

He managed Rick James, who grossed $40 Million in concert sales and monetized Bruce Fisher’s catalogue of songs, including the evergreen standard, “You Are So Beautiful”. KG co-founded Siebers Style, which grossed over $250 million for Beach Body and includes the Debbie Siebers exercise program, “Slim in 6”. KG then co-created and produced 14 episodes of the internationally acclaimed “Jadagrace Show”. He has received over 25 Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum records, including one Diamond Record for Boyz II Men, which sold over 12 million copies.

KG is also known as “Robin Hood” by his clients for his Copyright Termination and Recapture work. He has monetized and overseen many Artists’ and Writers’ songs valued at over $80 million, including the entire Smokey Robinson, Rick James, Ashford and Simpson and Norman Whitfield Catalogues.

Some of his monetized songs include, I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Shop Around, Ain't Too Proud to Beg, Tracks of My Tears, I'm Every Woman, Ain't No Mountain High Enough, War, Super Freak, You Are So Beautiful, and thousands more. KG mentored talented underprivileged kids at the Duke Ellington School of the Performing Arts in Washington DC, and brought in Stevie Wonder to perform for the kids. They raised $1 Million for the school. KG is a high level Intellectual Property Consultant, whose clients range from his father Berry Gordy to South Korean Tech Giant, Grand Master Kim, CEO of Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions.

Represented by Geneva Bray of GVA Talent Agency, KG has been a guest speaker for UCLA, USC, Duke University, and a keynote speaker at the Harvard Business School. Through Yellow Brick, KG has teamed up with the “Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music Program at NYU” to provide scholarships for under privileged students. He is also an expert contributor to news organizations such as CNN. Frequently spotted on Hollywood red carpets, KG has also appeared as himself on the hit TV series, Little Women LA as well as Inside Edition and Access Hollywood as a Music Industry Expert. He has been the Intellectual Property Manager for legendary artist Smokey Robinson and has created new masters of his recaptured songs.
