Mary Wilson, along with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, founded one of the most successful female singing groups in recording history – The Supremes. 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.
The Supremes found legendary success when Motown founder Berry Gordy put them in touch with his top writing and producing team, Holland-Dozier-Holland. With an unprecedented 12 number-one hits, including five in a row – “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” “Come See About Me,” “Stop, In The Name Of Love” and “Back in My Arms Again” – The Supremes set the precedent for super group success. Wilson worked hard to keep the dream alive even after Ballard and Ross left the group. Wilson, Jean Terrell and Cindy Birdsong performed as The New Supremes and racked up three top 10 hits: “Up The Ladder To The Roof,” “Stoned Love” and “River Deep, Mountain High” (with the Four Tops). To this day Wilson continues to tour under the moniker of Mary Wilson of The Original Supremes, and has performed for celebrities and politicians all over the world.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees the Shirelles were one of the earliest and among the very best girl groups with more than 20 “Billboard Top 100 Hits” including the timeless classic Billboard #1 Hits “Soldier Boy” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”. Often credited with launching the girl-group genre, their enduring string of hits began with “I Met Him on a Sunday” and their historic 1958 debut at New York’s legendary Apollo Theatre, which launched them into music history. The Shirelles’ series of hits includes “Dedicated To The One I Love” (Billboard #3), “Foolish Little Girl” (Billboard #4), “Mama Said” (Billboard #4), “Baby It’s You” (Billboard #8), “Everybody Loves a Lover” (Billboard #19), “Big John” (Billboard #21), “Tonight’s The Night” (Billboard #39) and many more.
The Shirelles continue to thrill audiences worldwide with their high-energy show, An Evening With the Shirelles, that includes their many hits interspersed with a wide variety of selections from pop, rock, and soul, to standards, gospel, and country, mixed with spirited dancing and comedy, all done in the inimitable style that millions of worldwide fans have come to expect of the legendary Shirelles.
Concert attendees must be 21 years of age or older.
