Mary Wilson, who co-founded The Supremes and remained a member of the group until they split up, has died at the age of 76.
The singer’s death was announced by her publicist Jay Schwartz but the cause of death has not yet been confirmed, according to the BBC’s US partner CBS.
The Supremes were known for hits such as Baby Love and You Can’t Hurry Love. The group was founded in Detroit as The Primettes in 1959, when Wilson was 15 years old. Wilson was an original member of the group alongside Diana Ross, Florence Ballard and Barbara Martin.
Martin left the group before they became successful, and The Supremes continued as a trio, reports BBC.
