Peoples Perspectives;   Sylvia Moy’s name might be familiar to those outside the music industry, but her creations have certainly lasted the test of time. Ms. Moy was part of the Motown creative team responsible for making Stevie Wonder a star and wrote songs for some of the legendary label’s most celebrated acts.

While at Motown, Moy was the first woman at the label to be named a record producer and she held sway in other ways as well. According to Berry Gordy’s autobiography To Be Loved, the mogul wanted to drop Wonder from the label as his voice began changing due to puberty. Moy convinced Gordy to keep Wonder on the label but only if she could craft a hit song for him.

One of the early hits Moy wrote was 1965’s “Uptight (Everything’s Alright),” which did well for Wonder. But it was the 1969 hit “My Cherie Amour” that took off and one of the earliest works he received writing credit on. Moy also helped write “I Was Made To Love Her” and “Never Had A Dream Come True” as well. Moy wrote for the Isley Brothers and co-wrote Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston’s classic duet “It Takes Two” alongside Mickey Stevenson.

National Cherries Jubilee Day is observed annually on September 24.  Cherry lovers everywhere are smitten with this easy to make, delicious dessert and it is a favorite for many special occasions.

Cherries are mixed together with liqueur (typically Kirschwasser) and then flambeed.  Very commonly the Cherries Jubilee is served as a sauce over vanilla ice cream.  Auguste Escoffier receives the credit for the Cherries Jubilee recipe.  He prepared the dish for one of Queen Victoria’s Jubilee celebration.
