Orleans Showroom Tickets from $39.95
It’s been more than 50 years since Martha Reeves first boarded that rented bus along with the likes of The Miracles, Stevie Wonder, the Supremes and Marvin Gaye on the first Motown Review. She and her backup group, the Vandellas, sang behind Marvin and soon hit the charts with their own trifecta: “Come and Get These Memories,” “Love is Like a Heat Wave,” and “Quicksand.” Over the next decade, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas would be a constant presence on the music charts, as well as on television and top venues across the US and abroad.
Reeves is the recipient of the Dinah Washington Award, a Rhythm n’ Blues Foundation Pioneer Award, a Black Woman in Publishing Legends Award, and has been inducted in the Alabama, Soul, Rock and Roll, and Vocal Group halls of fame. “Dancing in the Street” has been entered into the Library of Congress Registry of Historical Recordings and the Grammy Hall of Fame. Martha Reeves and the Vandellas are listed among Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Immortal Artists” and Martha herself was named one of the “30 Top Lead Singers of all Time.”
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. Since
then, Wilson has written a best-selling autobiography, performed on stage and
screen, lectured and toured the world, and continues to be looked up to as a
singer who set the standard for females in the recording industry.
As an original Supreme, Wilson was a much sought-after interview
regarding the award-winning film, DREAMGIRLS. After covering the red carpet
premiere for “Extra,” she endeared herself to a whole new generation of
Hollywood stars and fans alike, including Golden Globe winners Eddie Murphy
and Jennifer Hudson, as well as Jamie Foxx, BEYONCE and Snoop Dogg! The
success of DREAMGIRLS has also rekindled interest in Wilson’s best-selling
autobiography, DreamGirl: My Life as a Supreme.
