To celebrate the life of Mary Wilson in honor of her March 6 birthday, The GRAMMY Museum L.A. Live hosts “A Tribute to Mary Wilson.” The event will consist of a panel discussion, hosted by Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn (journalist, author, host, producer, and currently an adjunct instructor for the Annenberg Master’s of Specialized Journalism in The Arts), featuring Mary Wilson’s daughter Turkessa Babich, who will share stories of her mother Mary Wilson, Claudette Robinson, an original member of The Miracles (the first act to sign with Motown) who has known Wilson since her first days at Motown, as well as other family, friends, and celebrities. Wilson’s friends from the world of Motown, Politics, and Philanthropy include Beverly Todd, Marla Gibbs, Brian & Eddie Holland, Judy Pace, Eloise Laws, Anna Maria Horsford, Brenda Russell, Jackee Harry, Loretta Devine, Janie Bradford, Jay D. Schwartz and more.

Special Video tributes from Dionne Warwick, Barbara Hawkins (Dixie Cups), Michelle Chapman (Florence Ballard’s daughter), Rita Coolidge, Bubba Knight, Four Tops, Temptations, Tamron Hall, Linda Greene, Pointer Sisters , and more will be part of the special celebration.

Mary Wilson was a founding member of the Supremes, activist, author, fashion icon, actress, U.S. cultural ambassador, motivational speaker, dancer, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend, trailblazer, and legend.

UMe is also releasing “Mary Wilson: The Motown Anthology,” a deluxe 2-CD set at the same time. This is an incredible overview of the late legend’s Motown discography, from the Primettes (group before the Supremes) to her solo record produced by Gus Dungeon (Elton John, Joan Armatrading, Chris Rea, et al).

At the time of Mary’s passing, friends and fans were not able to participate in a celebration of life. Mary’s wish was to have a celebration with family, friends, and fans from around the world.

Tickets to the event may be purchased online in advance here.

Fans unable to attend will be able to watch the program on Mary Wilson’s birthday on Sunday, March 6, at 3 pm Pacific at www.collectionlive.com, the GRAMMY Museum’s official streaming service.

The event is happening on Friday, March 6th at 7 pm (GRAMMY Museum member check-in is 6:00 p.m.; Doors open at 6:30 p.m.). The GRAMMY Museum is located at L.A. Live, 800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles 90015

“Mary Wilson – The Motown Anthology” will be available on March 4. Attendees will be able to purchase a copy of The Motown Anthology as well as Mary’s book Supreme Glamour in the GRAMMY Museum’s Retail Store during the program.
