Last month, Mary posted a January recap on her YouTube channel announcing that she celebrated her 60th anniversary as a Supreme (Primette) on January 15th, since they originally signed on that date in 1961. She also discussed the passing of one of her best friends, Cicely Tyson.


Ain’t Too Proud released a statement on their Instagram saying, “We’re heartbroken to hear of the loss of Mary Wilson, one of the founding members of the Supremes. Mary helped craft the iconic Motown sound, and she brought joy and light every time we got to see her at our show. She will be deeply missed.”
