It was a vision of musical stardom as a teen in Detroit 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. Since then, Wilson has gone on to be a part of dozens of hit records, has written a best-selling autobiography, performed on stage and screen, lectured and toured the world, and continues to be revered as a singer who set the standard for females in the recording industry.
Motown founder Berry Gordy put the girls in touch with his top writing and producing team, Holland-Dozier-Holland, and four decades and 40 albums later, what once started as a dream has exceeded Wilson’s wildest imagination. With an unprecedented 12 number-one hits, including “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.
The Los Angeles Times said, “Mary Wilson remains strikingly attractive and a vibrant singer of much style and authority; Wilson may have been a backup singer with the Supremes but is in truth a lead singer with a star quality...”
With a successful solo career – and new CD out later this year – an equally successful literary career and her tireless humanitarian efforts, Wilson’s future couldn’t look brighter. She is living proof that dreams really do come true!
"Wilson is non-stop excitement, expressing every emotion an entertainer could possibly deliver. She’s vibrant, touching, heartwarming, and soulful.” - Rossmoor News
