First Lady of Motown, Claudette Robinson aka Mama C! The kids of the Robinson kids are SwishFamilyRobinson. We have all been privy to her motherly love shared by our friend Tamla. Claudette, former wife/band member of Smokey Robinson and The Miracles is one of the most spectacular human beings I have the pleasure of knowing. Her grace, charm, elegance, spirit and beauty make her one of the most sparkling stars in the Universe. We like to call her #noworknaturalbeautyblackdontcrack
