Mary Wilson was offered "Holiday" FIRST but she turned it down in turn giving the then unknown 24-year-old singer from Detroit by way of Manhattan, New York her first big hit!
d**n... makes me wonder if there were any songs of Madonna that they tried to give either her or Diane and both of them turned it down giving Madonna a hit, lol. Her EARLY music WAS admittedly influenced by Motown and urban music in general though.
You think Mary would've turned "Holiday" into a hit? I don't see it but how about y'all?
I read that in one of her books and iun think it would have been a hit for her. She said she turned it down because it reminded her of the early Supreme songs where she was just doing backup with a few words.
Never been a fan of Madonna or that kinda trash she calls music but, Mary just didn't have the kind of energy that the song needed.

Alot of people that have gone to Mary's shows over the years have said they are very Jazz inspired ... given her vocal style, I think this is the perfect direction for her ...Diana should stick with her pop route
