At first a quartet—Diana Ross, Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard and Barbara Martin—the Supremes signed with Motown in 1961. Barbara left the group in 1962 and the trio went on to record hit songs like "Baby Love" and "Stop! In the Name of Love." Five years later, Motown founder Berry Gordy replaced Florence with Cindy Birdsong, pictured above.
