Mary Wilson Quotes

March 4, 2023

Mary Wilson is an American singer and author who is best known for her work as a founding member of the Supremes. She died on February 9 at the age of 76.

Her music has been an inspiration to generations of fans, and her best-selling autobiography Dreamgirl - My Life as a Supreme is a testament to her success as a performer, activist, and author. She also teaches a Dare to Dream lecture to young people and is active in charity endeavors.

During her career as a singer, Wilson earned several awards, including the Grammy Award for Best Female Vocalist in 1968. She has also been a cultural ambassador for the U.S. and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

She was a prominent figure in the 1960s Detroit music scene, and is considered one of Motown’s most successful artists. She and her group, the Supremes, had 12 number one hits and sold over 100 million records.

After her departure from The Supremes in 1977, she pursued a solo career. In 1979, she released her first solo album.

The record reached number 90 on the pop charts. However, the album’s single “Red Hot” failed to make a positive impact on the charts.

The album features a wide variety of songs, from the early Supremes influenced “The Tears” to the more disco-inspired and soulful "Early Morning Love" and the sweeping ballad "Closer Together," which showcases her strong voice. A handful of rarities are also included, including a version of Jim Pepper’s “Witchi Tai To” that was not released until the album’s reissue in 2014.
