The life and experiences of the real Supremes and Motown Records were loosely based on the Broadway musical #Dreamgirls, stated Wikipedia. Jennifer Hudson, an outstanding singer, and actress received an Academy Award, Golden Globe and #Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2006.

Mary Wilson of the Legendary Singing Group “The Supremes” is The Remembered

The death of Mary Wilson was shocking. She was a founding member of the world renown female singing group Diana Ross and The Supremes. They were one of the most beautiful and talented singing groups that millions admired. Their Sunday night performances on The Ed Sullivan Show were a source of inspiration for young and old listeners. As a young girl it was my pure joy to sit before my family’s black and white television watching in awe. I had never seen such flair and grace as Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard as they harmonized together. The Supremes will always be one of the top groups in my repertoire of great music and memories.

The founder of Motown, Berry Gordy commented on the loss of Mary Wilson. The Supremes was Gordy’s “...most successful group in the 1960s.” He also expressed, “Mary Wilson was extremely special to me. She was a trailblazer, a diva and will be deeply missed.” Anthony Mason of CBS This Morning news had these heartfelt comments about Mary Wilson, “ After the Supremes disbanded in 1977 Wilson became an activist and a best selling author. She died last night at her home in Nevada. She met Florence Ballard in elementary school. They sang in a talent show together and then joined a group called the Primettes which had a young lady named Diana Ross. They sang with Motown in 1961 and then it all happened.” The Supremes went on to become one of the most popular female singing groups throughout the world.

Anchorwoman Gayle King of CBS This Morning acknowledged a tweet from the sole survivor of The Supremes. “Diana Ross just tweeted because she lives in California. I can only imagine what she must be thinking now she’s the only surviving member. I remember when l was a little girl seeing them on Ed Sullivan Show... And you just don’t see black women like that. They had on green and gold dresses and their makeup! I just thought they were the prettiest people l had ever seen.” Gayle asked Mason to read what Diana Ross’ tweeted, “l just woke up to this news. My condolences to Mary’s family. I am reminded each day as a gift, I have so many wonderful memories of our time together. The Supremes will live on in our hearts.” There is a legacy that we can all cherish through these classy, multitalented singers of this inspirational group of ladies. The Supremes will remain in our hearts foreve because of their genuine creativity. Good job ladies.

Other Blast from the Past-Music Was Featured from the Talented Group "Blue Magic"

Old school music never disappoints its audiences. Songs were sung from the group Blue Magic during the evening performances. This tremendously talented group has won seven Grammy Awards during their worldwide travels over the previous years. Such major hits as What's Come Over Me, Sideshow and Stop To Start were chart-topping hits. Blue Magic was an American R&B and Soul male groups that captured the hearts of millions based on their beautiful lyrics and voices. One of the group members talked about how if it weren't for their fan base, Blue Magic would not have been as successful. "Any skill you have is a skill given to us by our Heavenly Father Jehovah God." The truth was spoken. Outstanding performances had been given for audience member who loved great music.

It was an evening of memorable old school music that brought back beautiful memories based on the individual songs that were performed that evening in Delaware. An intriguing experience that will never be forgotten based on a blast from the past within the music realm that will never be forgotten.
