From the desk of Lynda Laurence:
Just little note to say how wonderful it is that so many people remembered and shared their thoughts, photos and well wishes to me on this 50th Anniversary of my first performance with The Legendary Supremes.
Although that was so long ago, I still remember Hawaii. What a great first show. Hawaii! Truly Supreme style.
So thanks to all of the fans who over the years have meant so much to not only to the group, but to all of us individually. You have truly “Kept the Music Playing."
To my partner and friend who I truly loved working with for the 31 years we spent together, I THANK YOU Scherrie. We proved that women can work together, get along, and have admiration and respect for each other. She loved my voice and performance, and I loved hers! I think that was the key. I would enjoy our shows together because we always did our very best! So thank you Scherrie for your winsome words below, and for being my friend.
Kudos! To the best and loyal fans all over the world! You are truly appreciated.
Keep The Music Playing
FROM THE HEART OF SCHERRIE PAYNE:
"Lynda has always been amazing! It’s no surprise that she was able to step in on such short notice and overwhelm the Supremes’ audience with her vocal skills, charming personality and magnificent vocals. She was Supreme even before she officially became a Supreme! Nothing is by mistake; this blessing was meant for Lynda. I’m so proud to have performed alongside of her for all these years. Such a talent! Congratulations are in order for this beautiful and much-deserved Anniversary recognition!"
