On #FLOSFRIDAY we reminisce fondly on the Former Ladies of The Supremes' 33 years together. Today we are going back to the summer of 1998! The Former Ladies of The Supremes (Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence with Freddi Poole) performed in Las Vegas as part of the "Dancing In The Streets" show alongside fellow Motown acts The Contours, The Originals, Kim Weston, & Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. The show was presented by Mickey Stevenson and hosted by comedian Paul Mooney at The Las Vegas Hilton Casino showroom July 23-28 1998.
A few nights into the run Diana Ross made a surprise appearance at the show. During the Former Ladies of The Supremes' performance the Ladies introduced Ms. Ross in the audience to a thunderous applause. After the show backstage Diana was complimentary of the Ladies' performance and happily posed for photos with everyone.
Enjoy there rare photos from our personal collection!
Did you watch The Motown 60 television special on April 21st 2019? The Motown tribute was held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Motown Records, which was founded by Berry Gordy in January 1959. The special was hosted by Cedric the Entertainer and Smokey Robinson. During the filming members of the Motown family were asked to stand to be acknowledged. Here's a screen capture of the lovely Scherrie Payne from the telecast. Supreme Legend Diana Ross gave a special performance that evening paying homage to her Motown movie career. This included a witty yet rousing version of "My Man," sung directly to Berry Gordy. She also performed the Theme From Mahogany. It was a historic evening of music and love that saw Scherrie Payne and two of her "Supreme Sisters" (Mary Wilson & Diana Ross) honoring the legacy of Motown.
Did you notice The Supremes' 1975 album in the collage back drop behind Cedric The Entertainer? This was Scherrie's debut with The Supremes alongside Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong. This album included their disco hit "He's My Man."
Happy Easter with love from Scherrie Payne, Susaye Greene & Joyce Vincent! What’s in your Easter basket today? We suggest a copy of our new single “Unconditional Love,” which is available for digital download on iTunes, Napster, Spotify and all other legal download sites.
