The name of the girl group The Supremes is world famous after all these years. The performance of Scherrie Payne, Susaye Greene and Joyce Vincent again proved this last Friday evening. After all, these three ladies belonged to the line-up of The Supremes in 1977, but the plans at the Motown label changed, and the latter chose to dissolve the group so that these ladies never had the chance to perform together. But after all these years they do it anyway and that is how Oostend got an exclusive performance!
Indeed, the sound of "Young America" was planned, and as a music lover I could not miss this. About 10 minutes after 8 pm, the accompaniment band came on stage which consisted of 2 keyboard players, a bass player, a drummer, a guitar player, a saxophonist, a trombone player and a trumpet player. Moments later, three African-American ladies in long black and purple dresses arrived, and they immediately started singing "Everybody Gets To Go To The Moon." Two more famous hits followed, such as "Come See About Me" and "Back in My Arms Again", after which they introduced themselves to the audience.
Scherrie Payne became a member of The Supremes in 1973 and sang on 3 albums with the group. The singles that she sang as lead singer were "He’s My Man", "I'm Gonna Let My Heart Do The Walking", "You're My Driving Wheel" and "Let Yourself Go." She is officially recognized as the last lead singer and is known worldwide as "The Little Lady With The Big Voice".
Susaye Greene first sang with Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder. She acted as a lead and backing singer between 1976 and 1977 with The Supremes, singing on the album "High Energy". But Susaye is also a songwriter, who wrote several hits for Michael Jackson, Deniece Williams, etc. She is the "last Supreme" in history and continued on with Scherrie as a duo. Together they recorded the album "Partners" for Motown. Nine years later the new group formed under the name "The Former Ladies of The Supremes".
Joyce Vincent joined in 2008. At that time Joyce was already a background singer and an original member of the group Tony Orlando & Dawn, who you know from "Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole Oak Tree". Later she presented a weekly program on CBS Tv.
The hits "Reflections", "Where Did Our Love Go", "Baby Love", "My World Is Empty Without You" and "Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart" followed. Scherrie told the audience that in 1969 the aforementioned Jean Terrell succeeded Diana Ross, who then opted for a solo career. This was followed by a song that I could not bring hear properly, because I have to admit that the sound of the band sometimes drowned out the vocals. Anyway, "Up The Ladder To The Roof" became the next hit, after which it was "I Gonna Let My Heart Do The Walking". And with "Bye Bye .. So Long" they disappeared from the stage. The orchestra kept that song for a while, and then it was time for the intermission.
Returning to the stage dressed in long, colored dresses (green, pink and orange), the ladies started their second part with "You Keep Me Hanging On", followed by "Stop! In The Name of Love. After this, Scherrie told the origin of this song. Now the relationship between the sound of the band and the vocals was better coordinated. Susaye then covered Deniece Williams's hit "Free", to which she had co-written. Then the farewell song "Someday We'll All Be Together" (1969) of the original Supremes followed, with "I Hear A Symphony" after it.
Scherrie stated that more love should come into the world, and then declared "I Love You" in different languages. To continue with their version of the beautiful duet "How Do You Keep The Music Playing" by the late James Ingram and Patti Austin. After this, the public gave a rousing standing ovation, followed by a steamy version of "Stoned Love." The audience became more enthusiastic and even started to dance. We then heard their new single "Unconditional Love", followed by the well-known "You Can't Hurry Love", which indeed was covered by Phil Collins. There was more dancing and then surprisingly enough a cover of the cheerful hit "Happy" by Pharrell Williams followed. The hall went crazy, but unfortunately this also heralded the end of the show.
There is no doubt that this trio keeps the legacy of The Supremes alive. Even though there have been changes in the line-up, "The Show Must Go On"! - Patrick Van De Wiele
