The Supremes

Icons of the Century

The most glamorous Motown ensemble of the 1960s and the model for the hit musical “Dreamgirls,” the Supremes represented the culmination of all the girl groups that came before them and the business model for those who came after. They were equal opportunity entertainers, as welcome and familiar at rent parties and Las Vegas as they were on radio and TV.

Led by Diana Ross’ cooing soprano, The Supremes worked with their label’s A-list writers, arrangers, musicians and choreographers to create polished, lasting pop gems such as “You Can’t Hurry Love” and “Baby Love.” They proved Motown was “The Sound of Young America” and their signature sound is indelible.
