It was one year ago that we announced the news that Susaye Greene has joined the Former Supremes group.
They say good things come to those who wait, and we waited 40 years to finally hear the united sounds of Scherrie Payne, Susaye Greene and Joyce Vincent.
On June 12th 1977, Mary Wilson performed her final performance with The Supremes (Scherrie Payne and Susaye Greene) at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London, England. Mary was leaving the group to pursue a solo singing career and Scherrie and Susaye were continuing as The Supremes with a new singer. Scherrie and Susaye chose Joyce Vincent, formerly of Tony Orlando & Dawn fame, to complete their trio. Unfortunately things changed and this trio didn't unite until 2017.
The Former Ladies of The Supremes were formed in 1986 and for 31 years Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence continued to authentically present The Supremes' music to fans worldwide. When Lynda decided to move on, Susaye Greene was the obvious choice to join the trio. Susaye happily accepted Scherrie's invitation and together again, they continue the tradition of Supremacy!
Susaye's fun personality, positive attitude, motivating words, and fantastic voice have become an enormous asset to the Former Supremes trio. Whenever Susaye is around there is lots of giggles and laughter, it's contagious!
We love you Susaye,
Happy Anniversary! We are looking forward to many more years to come!
FUN FACT: Since the formation of The Former Ladies of The Supremes in 1986 every Motown Supreme (excluding the original 3 members) has been a member of this trio (Cindy Birdsong, Jean Terrell, Lynda Laurence, Scherrie Payne & Susaye Greene.)
