On Michael Jacksons Moonwalk book. He said... " "I Want You Back" was originally called "I Want To Be Free" and was written for Gladys Knight. Freddie had even thought that Berry might go over Glady's head and give the song to the Surpremes. Instead, he mentioned to Jerry that he'd just signed this group of kids from Gary, Indiana. Freddie put two and two together, realized it was us, and decided to trust fate."
I thought that was really cool. And I never knew that until now! ^_^
