SUPREMES

"You Keep Me Hanging on" live


SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

Vocal group formed in Detroit around 1959. The group signed with Motown in 1961 as The Supremes with members Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson. Achieving success in the mid-1960s with Ross as lead singer, Motown president Berry Gordy renamed the group Diana Ross & the Supremes in 1967 and replaced Ballard with Cindy Birdsong. Ross left the group for a successful solo career in 1970 and was replaced by Jean Terrell. After 1972, the lineup of the Supremes changed frequently, with Lynda Laurence, Scherrie Payne and Susaye Greene all becoming members before the group ended its eighteen-year existence in 1977.
