Statement on Passing of Dick Clark from Berry Gordy

I’m saddened and devastated over the loss of my dear friend, Dick Clark.     We were friends for over 50 years.   My thoughts and condolences go out to his family, especially his wonderful wife, Kari, who took such incredible care of him always.
Dick was always there for me and Motown, even before there was a Motown.   He was an entrepreneur, a visionary and a major force in changing pop culture and ultimately influencing integration.   It happened first emotionally.   Music can do that.   He didn’t do it from a soap box, he just did it.   That’s who he was.   American Bandstand was a platform for  all  artists.   For me personally, he helped bring Motown into living rooms across America.
Dick did everything with class, style and integrity.   He was a true gentleman. His groundbreaking achievements in music and television ensure that his legacy will live on forever.
Berry Gordy,
Founder, Motown
