An elegantly dressed Mary Wilson of The Supremes. Without a doubt, Wilson is one of the friendliest and most vivacious acclaimed artists I’ve ever profiled over the years. And when asked, Wilson mentioned that the latest stop of her personal collection of over 50 Supremes’ gowns and vintage memorabilia from that group will be at the African American Museum in Philadelphia sometime this year.

Taylor Dayne Country music star Clay Walker.
