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.
