Well what needs to be said about Clarence Paul? Credited with being the man who “discovered” Stevie Wonder as a 10 year old, Clarence was also seen as his mentor as well as producing some of his early songs.
Not only was Clarence instrumental in bringing Stevie’s unique talents to the fore, but he also wrote and produced records for Marvin Gaye, Martha Reeves & Vandellas and The Temptations whilst being part of the Motown stable.
Clarence Paul (or Pauling to give him his real name) began singing in a gospel group in the early fifties at a young age with his brother Lowan called the Royal Sons (who later became the Five Royales). As well as working for Motown, Clarence recorded a number of his own records of which this was the highlight.
