Mary Wilson (born March 6, 1944) is an American vocalist, best known as a founding member of The Supremes. Wilson remained with the group following the departures of Florence Ballard in 1967 and Diana Ross in 1970, and until the group disbanded in 1977. Wilson has since released two solo albums and released two autobiographies, Dreamgirl: My Life As a Supreme and Supreme Faith: Someday We’ll Be Together, both books later released as an updated combination. She has since carried on her career as a concert performer, musical activist and organizer of various museum displays of the Supremes’ famed costumes. Wilson was inducted along with Ross and Ballard (as member of the Supremes) into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
