Thought this might be of interest to some, given her Dreamgirls book success on screen on theatre it might not be as much show and tell as the original book, but hopefull will follow the book rather than the showbiz interpretations. I have seen this lady before and she can certainly sing.
Sounds a great afternoon out for anyone that can make it
I assume it is based on the book as below, which is one of the best biographies I have read.

Join us for a very special afternoon of music and conversation with Mary Wilson, a founding member of one of the most successful female singing groups in recording history — The Supremes. SInce the 1960s, Mary Wilson and The Supremes have brought the sound of Motown into the homes of millions across the globe and simultaneously advanced civil rights by breaking down barriers in the entertainment industry.
While growing up in Detroit’s Brewster Projects, Mary’s love for singing blossomed when she befriended Florence Ballard, Betty McGlown and Diana Ross at age 13. Four decades and 40 albums later, what once started as a dream has exceeded beyond Wilson’s wildest imagination.
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.
