After the concert, she will visit victims of bombs during the war in Quang Tri Province on November 1.
Ms. Wilson was born in 1944 in Detroit and founded Supreme in 1959 together with Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, and Cindy Birdsong.
The band created dozens of bestselling albums like Where did our love go?, Baby love, Come see about me, Stop, In the name of love, Up the ladder to the roof, Stoned love, River deep, mountain high.
Since the group disbanded in 1977, she has established herself as a solo performer, an author, and an advocate for humanitarian causes.
She was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award by the US-based National Foundation of Women and asked to join the Delegation of Woman Legislators.
