“Mary Wilson and the Four Tops makes any Holiday spectacular! This world class stage show blows the roof off with classic Motown, seasonal music, and dazzling ‘reinventions’ of jazz and pop standards. Mary Wilson candidly shares her love of music, her personal story, her fantastic sense of humor, and her incredible sense of style in this rocking Christmas party! With the Four Tops, Mary Wilson made music history and will make more music history live onstage in Chicago this winter!” – Bill Castellino, Director
Born in Greenville, Mississipi, Mary Wilson is perhaps best known as a founding member of the popular ’60s Motown group The Supremes, with whom she recorded the hit songs “Baby Love,” “Come See About Me,” and “Stop In the Name of Love.” The Supremes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, and Wilson has been awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and Grammy Hall of Fame Award, as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition to her solo albums Mary Wilson and Walk the Line, Wilson has also written two autobiographies, Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme and Supreme Faith: Someday We’ll Be Together. In recent years, Wilson has shifted her focus to her humanitarian efforts, including a 2003 appointment as a Goodwill Ambassador to the world.
