TSDRadio: The ‘Supreme’ Mary Wilson talks about her life and career

Legendary songstress set to take the state at The Halloran Centre Saturday

Mary Wilson

If you think for one second that Mary Wilson is going to stand up on the stage at the Halloran Centre and sing the hits of a group she left decades ago . . . well, you’re in luck!

In an exclusive interview for TSDRadio, Wilson said she’s thrilled to come to Memphis and is looking forward to performing not just the sultry jazz standards she’s become known for, but songs from the iconic trio she helped make famous in the 1960s.

“It won’t sound like Diana (Ross), my voice is deeper,” Wilson said. “I make my money with the Supremes songs, but that’s where my talent is, the torch songs. The ‘oo-oo-oo” and the ‘Baby, baby baby.’ That way people can see where my talent is.”

And she’s expecting some special guests on stage – even if they don’t know it just yet.

“Sometimes people get so happy they get up on stage, honey,” she laughed. “People come out in their gowns and boas, hair, makeup. It’s a glamor show! Girls, guys, they know the steps – especially on ‘Stop, In The Name of Love!’ It’s a fun show.”
