Mary Wilson of The Supremes comes to Southport Theatre

From the Southport Visiter by Janine Yaqoob

THE first lady of Motown, Mary Wilson, is getting ready to perform at Southport Theatre as part of her UK tour.

Appearing as ‘Mary Wilson of the Original Supremes’, the soul superstar will be coming to town on Friday, March 4.

Fans of The Supremes will find themselves singing along to hits such as ‘Baby Love’, ‘Come See About Me’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’, ‘You Keep Me Hanging On’, ‘I’m Gonna Make You Love Me’ and many more.

Mary, a founder member of the soulful vocal group, is sought after to entertain all over the world and even performed for President Bill Clinton in the White House for the Millennium Celebrations.

Still performing with the same passion as she did singing with the original Supremes, the world renowned celebrity is also using her fame and flair to promote humanitarian efforts to end hunger, raise AIDS awareness and encourage world peace.

The Supremes are the only group to have five consecutive No. 1 hits in America, and their success was replicated in the UK. They were the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s.

Interest in the Supremes’ legacy was renewed after the release of the award-winning film “Dreamgirls,” in 2006.

Mary’s special guests, The Chi-Lites, will be joining the Motown legend on stage when she performs in Southport.

It is the first time the band has performed in the UK since 1984.

Their many hits include ‘Have You Seen Her’, ‘Oh Girl’, ‘Homely Girl’, ‘I Found Sunshine’, ‘Too Good To Be Forgotten’, ‘It’s Time For Love’ and ‘You Don’t Have To Go’.

In 2000 the Chi-Lites were inducted into the Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame.

Mary Wilson of the Original Supremes comes to Southport Theatre on Friday, March 4. For tickets call 0844 847 2380 or visit www.southporttheatre.org.uk
