Mary Wilson

Mary Wilson, co-founder of The Supremes, helped garner an unequaled record of Number One Hits by a Female Group. Recording for Motown, Mary guided The Supremes into rock 'n roll history, turning her group into one of the three icons of the 1960's, alongside Elvis Presley and The Beatles. Mary has never stopped developing new projects and touring the world entertaining her fans. She has excelled in theatrical endeavors, such as the year-long Canadian tour of "Beehive", a play centered on a female musical group. Other theatrical experiences include her Off-Broadway debut in "Grandma Sylvia's Funeral" in New York City, and "Mother Hubbard". Mary has done a great deal of charity work, raising millions for AIDS through the People with AIDS Coalition of Tucson (PACT). She has also raised funds for homeless people, cancer research and victims of child abuse, and was a Cultural Ambassador for the United States. Mary performs continually with orchestras, symphonies, and her own touring band. She has written three books: "Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme" (1986), "Supreme Faith: Someday We'll be Together" (1990) and "Supreme Glamour" (2019). "Dreamgirl" remains the best-selling rock and roll autobiography ever published.
