Did You Know?: Thomasina Winifred Montgomery, better known as Tammi Terrell, was a Motown Records star singer in the 1960s. Her singing career took off when she gained the notice of Berry Gordy, the creator and CEO of Motown Records. He signed her, and she went on to have her first R&B top 40 hit, "I Can't Believe You Love Me." That song was quickly followed by the popularity of "Come On and See Me." Terrell was engaged by Motown in early 1967 to perform duets with Marvin Gaye. "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," their debut song together, became a significant crossover pop success the same year, peaking at No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 on the R&B charts as well as big duet songs like "You're All I Need to Get By" and "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing".
