RON MILLER - songwriting legend passes on

Motown songwriter/producer Ron Miller has passed away. Born in Chicago, Ron was discovered by Motown founder Berry Gordy while playing piano in a bar. Ron's songs have been recorded by Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Celine Dion, and Gladys Knight, to name a few.
Ron's greatest muse in music was his relationship with singer/songwriter Charlene. Ron produced the majority of Charlene's work for Motown & Prodigal Records. Together with Ken Hirsch, Ron wrote Charlene's #1 International hit "I've Never Been To Me" as well as her historic duet with Stevie Wonder "Used To Be".
Rest in peace Ron.
