The Miracles were also the first Motown act to receive coaching and instruction from famed choreographer Cholly Atkins , who had previously worked with Little Anthony & the Imperials , the Cadillacs , and future Motown act Gladys Knight & the Pips . (Bobby Rogers, the Miracles' best dancer, did choreography for the group prior to Atkins' arrival). [28] [29] Through his association with the Miracles, Atkins came into Motown at their insistence, and soon became the official in-house choreographer for all of the company's acts, including the Temptations , the Marvelettes , the Four Tops , the Contours , Martha & the Vandellas , and the Supremes .

The Miracles' most beloved single, "Ooo Baby Baby," a song that radio stations played day and night, and was the most requested tune at inner-city canteens, basement parties, cookouts, and chill sessions but didn't even sell a million copies. It didn't ace the R&B or the pop chart, finishing number four R&B and number 16 pop in 1965, yet the buttery-smooth, heartbreaking ballad has endured nearly four decades of repeated plays, remakes, and accolades. Writing credits go to Smokey Robinson and Miracle Pete "Warren" Moore. For comparisons, the Miracles' "My Girl Has Gone" -- not nearly as popular as "Ooo Baby Baby," which the Miracles dropped from their live show a couple of years after its release, and one that Smokey never sings on his solo gigs -- did better chart-wise with a number three pop showing and number 14 R&B; go figure. It's been redone by a slew of artists, including the Five Stairsteps, Linda Ronstadt, the Moments, the Whatnauts, Shalimar, the Escorts, Edwin Starr & Blinky, Sylvester, Ricardo Scales, Ralfi Pagan, and Ella Fitzgerald.
