It was a vision of musical stardom as a Detroit teen that inspired Mary
Wilson, along with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, to found one of the most
successful female singing groups in recording history – The Supremes. With an unprecedented 12 number-one hits, including five in a row – “Where Did
Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” “Stop, In The Name Of Love,” and “Back in My Arms
Again” – The Supremes set the precedent for super group success. Since
then, Wilson has written a best-selling autobiography, performed on stage and
screen, lectured and toured the world, and continues to be looked up to as a
singer who set the standard for females in the recording industry.
To this day Wilson continues to tour under the moniker of Mary Wilson of
The Original Supremes, and has performed for handfuls of celebrities and
politicians all over the world, including The Clintons at The White House and Britian's Queen Mother.
In 1988, The Supremes were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame,
receiving the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, which Wilson personally accepted.
"If Wilson’s command of stage and song surprises people, then they just haven’t really been listening for the past 30 years or so." - PopEntertainment.com
