(Mary in the center cuts eyes while Cindy looks on and Diana.... does Diana)
Supreme and Flo replacement, Cindy Birdsong swooped onto the stage and into our hearts after Flo was unceremoniously fired in 1967. She had come from a successful run in Patti LaBelle and the Blue Belles (and some fill in moments for Ballard who struggled with alcoholism, amongst other issues) and was thrust into a tense moment in Supreme history. Diana was planning her exit and Mary had been pushed to the back and completely left off all official recordings. Dang!
I could go on, but for now, you, Miss Birdsong, are my excuse for poppin' a bottle o bubbly tonite!
It Can't All Be Dior
