Legendary Recording Artist Mary Wilson Kicks off Upcoming Arts in Action Performance Season

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Vocal powerhouse Mary Wilson of The Supremes kicks off the 2013-14 UNCW Presents Arts in Action Performance Series with a concert at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19 in Kenan Auditorium.

During the 1960s, Wilson helped garner an unequaled record of number one hits by a female group, making The Supremes musical icons rivaling Elvis Presley and The Beatles. While Wilson is best known as an original member of the world's most famous female trio, the legendary singer's career did not stop there, she continues to move on to new heights as a best-selling author, United States Department of State Cultural ambassador and dedicated humanitarian.

Joined on stage by UNCW musicians, her performance will feature hits from The Supremes' heyday, as well as more recent songs, creating a unique blend of classic and contemporary music.
