To Shoshanna Payne Philips, La Voix Studio & The Music De Maison Foundation:
I wish to thank everyone who was an integral part of this truly stellar award ceremony and gala. It was so well done. The grace and elegance that ensued the evening was in my estimation tantamount to any other awards gala I have ever attended.
It was plain to see that La Voix Studio cares for their students. The children were so excited to perform, and perform they did! It was delightful to see them eager to show what they have
been trained by La Voix to do. It was a joy to watch this next generation of students who will become performers in their own right. Kudos! to LaVoix Studio & The Music De Maison Foundation.
Watching the video montage of The Supremes brought back such good memories, especially that of Scherrie Payne and I on tour with Diana Ross in 2000. That was a special time for me. The Supremes are, and will always be, a huge part of my musical journey, and for that I am grateful.
You know a company has been a force in the music industry when the music is still playing, and vinyl records are making a comeback! Motown music will never die! Thank you to the company that made it all happen.
It goes without saying that having my darling grandchildren present me with this beautiful award was a highlight of the evening for me. That is something I will never forget! Thank You for giving me that precious memory.
I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of my friends that supported that evening. It was heart warming to see them, and of course….The Fans! The people who have kept this group feeling motivated to continue. The fans of The Supremes are AMAZING! We Love you all!
I must say that reuniting with Scherrie Payne and Joyce Vincent on stage was like going home! It was rewarding and just plain FUN! We love to work together, and we enjoy each other so much.
The Gala was just that…A Gala Event that I will not soon forget…
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING
