Sinfonia's full orchestra shares the stage with Ms. Wilson and her incredible band at Destiny Worship Center in Miramar Beach for a most magical concert of the holiday season. Tickets range from $32.50 to $55 per person. Purchase tickets online, on Sinfonia Gulf Coast's facebook page, or on the app. sinfoniagulfcoast.org
It was a vision of musical stardom as a Detroit teen that inspired Mary Wilson, along with Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, to found one of the most successful female singing groups in recording history – The Supremes. Since then, Wilson has written a best-selling autobiography, performed on stage and screen, lectured and toured the world, and continues to be looked up to as a singer who set the standard for females in the recording industry.
Throughout her career, Mary Wilson has had the privilege and pleasure of performing all over the world. Royalty requested many of her performances with The Supremes, such as for Britain’s Queen Mother as well as for the King of Sweden. In 2000, Wilson had the prestigious honor of performing at the White House for the Millennium Celebration as well as two inaugural dinners held in President Bush’s honor. In 1988, The Supremes were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, receiving the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, which Wilson personally accepted.
With a successful solo career – and new CD out this spring – an equally successful literary career and her tireless humanitarian efforts, Mary’s future couldn’t look brighter. She is living proof that dreams really do come true! For more on Mary Wilson, please visit marywilson.com.
