Coming Monday: Interview with Louvain Demps

As many of you know, when I’m not blogging about Diana Ross and/or The Supremes, I’m a television journalist in Atlanta.  My job has given me the opportunity to interview some incredible people (including Mary Wilson last year), and I’m thrilled that Monday morning, my interview with the legendary Louvain Demps will air on television.  Ms. Demps is, of course, one of The Andantes, the prized Motown background singers who sang on tens of thousands of recordings in the 1960s, including many Supremes cuts (that’s Louvain singing the famous high note on “Love Child”).

I’ll post the full stories here once they air on TV, but for now, here’s a little preview, as she remembers working with The Four Tops.

    • Paul says:

      She is a huge part of Motown history and of the Motown sound. She was there from the very beginning, and sang with everyone. A real, living treasure.

    “Motown From The Background” Co-written by Louvain is a must for any ardent Motown fan. The Motown sound just wouldn’t have been The Motown Sound without The Andantes. Unsung heroes (heroines) of the success of the label.
