The Supremes were a singing group that consisted of three African- American women, Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard. They sang a wide range of music, but they were known for being part of the Motown Records label. They were breaking barriers and expectations. They set the example for many other African American singers to come.
In March 11th 1994, The Supremes are awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7060 Hollywood Blvd. The group retired in 1977 and throughout their 18-year span members did switch out, but they remained well known. Their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was received 17 years later, but well deserved.
They had 12 number one singles and due to their vocal talent they rightfully worked for their spot as America’s most successful vocal group.
