En español | AARP has won a New York Emmy Award for our original short film, The Andantes: Motown’s Secret Blend. The film profiles a popular female group of Motown backup singers during the 1960s and 1970s who worked with Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, the Temptations, the Supremes and many other Motown icons. You’ll hear them on some of the most popular tracks from the era, including “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Diana Ross and “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)” by the Four Tops.

AARP Studios won the Emmy in the category “nostalgia, long form content (longer than 10 minutes).”
