Needless to say, I'm elated that The Supremes are well represented on "The D".  Scherrie Payne came into the group in 1973, joining Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong in what was still the best selling female group of all time. Scherrie and I have been friends for years. I think we met through our mutual friend, Sami McKinney, a great songwriter and soul-singer-connector like no other.  Now that I think about it I'm pretty sure I met Freda, Scherrie's sister who's also on "The D", through Sami as well.  Thank you, Paynes, for all you have brought to "The D".
