Mary Wells Voice Your Choice

Mary Wells was born on May 13, 1943 in Detroit, Michigan, the home of Motown Records. She was the very first artist to score a Top 10 and #1 single for Motown Records. When she was just 17, she presented the song Bye Bye Baby to Jackie Wilson's producer, Berry Gordy Jr. Gordy signed her to his brand new record label, Motown Records. She ended up recording Bye Bye Baby herself, and hit became her first charted record in 1961, peaking at number 45. She went on to have a total of twenty-three appearances on the Billboard charts, including four Top Ten hits and a Number One record with My Guy.
