On Friday's we reflect on the 33 year career of The Former Ladies of The Supremes. We call it #flosfriday.
Today we are going back with to 2003 with Scherrie Payne, Lynda Laurence and Freddi Poole. The Ladies were heading the annual "Sunset Junction Street Fair" Festival in Silverlake, California with the legendary Isaac Hayes.
Special guest Susaye Greene (Formerly of The Supremes) opened the show singing songs from her then current CD "No Fear Here." Her son joined her on-stage for their new version of "Children of The Ghetto," which featured her son rapping over her singing.
The Former Ladies of The Supremes, Scherrie Payne & Lynda Laurence with Freddi Poole dazzled the crowd with their slick and sophisticated act. Dancers were added to their opening number of "You Keep Me Hanging On," which added another level of excitement to the show. Then the ladies guided the audience through a long list of Supremes' classics including "Stop In The Name of Love," "Up The Ladder To The Roof," "I'm Gonna Let My Heart Do The Walking," and many more. Their signature version of "How Do You Keep The Music Plying" received a thunderous applause and the Ladies closed their show with the Mary J. Blige classic "No More Drama." Cheers of "Encore" roared though the outdoor street fair.
The backstage afte-party was a blast, with everyone enjoying a night under the stars with family, friends, old and new! Great memories!!! Enjoy these photos from our personal collections.
