Martha Reeves - Martha Reeves Eyes Motown Movie
Motown legend Martha Reeves is planning to make a movie charting her career from humble secretary to international superstar.
The soul singer arrived unannounced at the music label's headquarters in Detroit, Michigan in the early 1960s hoping for an audition, but was instead asked to take care of some secretarial work.
She later impressed bosses by providing backing vocals for Marvin Gaye, and eventually shot to fame with her group Martha and the Vandellas, enjoying a string of hits including Heat Wave, Dancing in the Street, and Nowhere to Run.
Now Reeves is planning to shoot a film detailing the roots of her success.
She tells the Bbc, "I'm going to make a movie soon, because I want to tell it how it was from the secretarial aspect. I didn't go over there to be a secretary, I went there to sing. And eventually I did, and I'm glad about it."
