The Temptations, often referred to as American music royalty, are world-renowned superstars of entertainment, revered for their phenomenal catalog of music and prolific career. The genesis and magnitude of their greatness is one of the most extraordinary stories of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Billboard magazine ranked the Temptations #1 in their most recent list of the Greatest R&B/Hip-Hop Artists of All Time, and in November of 2019 named them one of the 125 Greatest of All Time Artists. Rolling Stone magazine named them among the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, and in September of 2020, the editors of Rolling Stone commented that the Temptations are “indisputably the greatest black vocal group of the Modern Era…,” and listed the group’s Anthology album among their 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

The Temptations are deeply honored and grateful for the continued outpouring of adulation from fans everywhere. Beginning in June of this year through June of 2022, the group will celebrate their 60th Anniversary, a significant milestone in their iconic career.

I am 75, grew up with The Temptations. I’ve seen the Temptations miniseries 5 times, and I still cry every time! Motown music did bring the races together, and I believe we all liked the changes, the better for all of us.  I will continue to watch the miniseries as often as I can find it. The actors were Gold, just like the individuals they portrayed. And, I know that the Spirit of Christ led Otis through these times. God bless you all as you continue to journey!

Since the first time I saw the Temptations mini-series (I believe I was in 6th grade), I have become the biggest fan! I watch the series every holiday, and listen to the music daily.... the Emperors of Soul album lives in my car, and I made sure to buy one for my mom’s car.... my vinyl collection is FULL of Temptations ORIGINAL vinyls.... always on eBay looking for something new. I have introduced this music.... along with many other Motown artists music with my 12 year old son.... he loves it! Thankful for such great songs!!!

Otis, I know we already made a movie out of the Temptations but I'm also thinking you should make a tv show for this like into season instead of 2-4 hours of a movie. And also I'm a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE TEMPTATIONS FAN LIKE I KNOW ALL OF YOUR SONG AND I'm 13.
