Live tami sex charting
Figuring "Tammy Montgomery" was too long of a name to put on a single, Gordy changed it to "Tammi Terrell". "I Can't Believe You Love Me" became Terrell's first R&B top forty single, followed almost immediately by "Come On and See Me".
In 1966, Terrell recorded two future classics, Stevie Wonder's "All I Do (Is Think About You)" and The Isley Brothers' "This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You)".
There are also rumors reported by others in Detroit such as by Ruffin's former road manager that Ruffin also hit Terrell in the head with a hammer, which further complicated her unknown condition. Gaye would later cite the song as "one of Tammi's favorites".
In early 1967, Motown hired Terrell to sing duets with Marvin Gaye, who had achieved duet success with Mary Wells and Kim Weston as well as having recorded duets with Oma Heard. The song's B-side, the Marvin Gaye composition "If This World Were Mine", became a modest hit on both charts (No. All four songs were included on Gaye and Terrell's first duet album, United, released in the late summer of 1967.
In April 1965, during a performance at the Twenty Grand Club in Detroit, she was spotted by Motown CEO Berry Gordy, who promised to sign her to Motown.
During recording sessions, Gaye would recall later that he did not know how gifted Terrell was until they began singing together. For sessions of their first recording, the Ashford & Simpson composition, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", both Gaye and Terrell recorded separate versions. At the end of the year, the duo scored another top ten single with "If I Could Build My Whole World Around You", which peaked at No. Throughout that year, Gaye and Terrell began performing together and Terrell became a vocal and performance inspiration for the shy and laid-back Gaye, who hated live performing.
