New York City
It was a vision of musical stardom as a Detroit teen that inspired Mary Wilson, along with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, to found one of the most successful female singing groups in recording history — The Supremes. Five decades and 40 albums later, what once started as a dream has exceeded beyond Wilson’s wildest imagination. With an unprecedented 12 number-one hits, including five in a row — “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” and “Back in My Arms Again” — The Supremes set the precedent for super group success.
