My Generation

Mary Wilson Reflects on Motown Magic

The former Supreme recounts the trio's beginnings

 

In the early '60s, the Motown label was producing hit after hit — all from male singers. But three Detroit schoolgirls caught the eye and ear of legendary producer Berry Gordy, and soon the Supremes were taking the world by storm. Even though much of that world would not allow them in its restaurants or hotels.

In this episode of My Generation, Mary Wilson recalls the "magic" of the famous music she, Florence Ballard and Diana Ross created, achieving 12 number one singles, empowering women and easing racial tensions (with support from a certain Dick Clark). Watch now.
