With new head writer Hogan Sheffer's storytelling just about getting into full swing this week, Days of our Lives has just announced scoring yet another coup in the form of legendary singer/songwriter Smokey Robinson. Airing during the November Sweeps period, Robinson will guest star for two episodes (November 15 and 16 at 1 p.m. in most markets) and will perform "I Love Your Face" from his recent album Timeless Love.
Here's the scoopage: Marlena Black (Deidre Hall) is lost in the snowy wilderness and is startled by a mysterious man carrying an ax! Is it another serial killer? Nope far from it. Marlena learns it’s none other than Smokey Robinson who just so happens to be vacationing at a secluded cabin nearby. Robinson, who plays himself, rescues her from the cold and brings her back to his place to recover in front of a warm fire and calls the authorities. Later, John (Drake Hogestyn) tracks Marlena down at the cabin and Smokey gives an impromptu performance for the reunited couple singing "I Love Your Face."
An acclaimed singer-songwriter whose career spans over four decades of hits, Robinson’s recent release Timeless Love features some of the most romantic songs from jazz, big band as well as traditional pop standards of the '20s, '30s and '40s. He continues to thrill sold-out audiences around the world with his voice, impeccable timing and profound sense of lyric. His lifetime achievements include 36 Top 40 hits, a Grammy Living Legend Award, berths in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, and the Soul Train Heritage Award among numerous other honors. This December, Robinson will receive a Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contribution to the arts and American culture. He also appeared on reality show "Celebrity Duets" eariler this year.
