Singer, writer and entertainer Mary Wilson from the legendary Motown trio, The Supremes, returns to the Suncoast Showroom Jan. 16-17.

While growing up in Detroit’s Brewster Projects, Wilson befriended Florence Ballard, Betty McGlown and Diana Ross when she was 13. The quartet later formed a singing group, The Primettes. Wilson, Ballard and Ross were later signed to Motown Records and became known as The Supremes.

The Supremes were nominated for a Grammy Award in 1965 and 1966, garnering an unprecedented 12 “Billboard Hot 100” #1 hits, including back-to-back awards for “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” “Stop, In The Name Of Love” and “Back in My Arms Again.” In 1977, Wilson released her first solo album, “Mary Wilson,” which yielded the dance hit “Red Hot.”  In 1992, Wilson released her first album in 13 years, “Walk the Line,” which included the single “One Night With You.”

Between her solo efforts, Wilson released her autobiography “Dreamgirl… My Life As A Supreme” in 1986. The book has sold more than 250,000 copies and became one of the best-selling rock ’n’ roll autobiographies of all time.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. each night. Tickets start at $20 plus taxes and fees and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming box office by calling 702.284.7777 or visiting www.suncoastcasino.com.
