Barbara Diane Martin Richardson (born June 1943 in Detroit, Michigan) is an African-American singer, better known for being one of the original founding members of Motown singing group The Supremes. After The Primettes dropped Betty McGlown from their lineup due to McGlowns upcoming nuptials, Martin replaced her in the group in 1960. She and her groupmates, Diana Ross (then known as Diane), Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard, signed a recording contract with Motown founder Berry Gordy on January 15, 1961 as The Supremes, a name that Ballard had chosen (as she was the only group member in the studio at the time) from a list provided by Motown songwriter, Janie Bradford, and became part of the Motown stable of performers.In between recording a handful of early singles, none of which became hits, Martin, Wilson, Ross, and Ballard worked as studio singers and hand clappers for other leading groups. In October 1961, Martin became pregnant. Her husband supported her decision to stay in the group, but she left in the early spring of 1962 – leaving Ross, Wilson and Ballard a trio.Although Martin sang on many of the groups early singles, and most of the tracks on the groups first album, Meet The Supremes, she is not pictured on the album cover, and never received any royalties from Motown after 1962. All of Martins recorded vocals appear under the name of The Supremes, while McGlowns appear under The Primettes. Martins only lead vocal (singing-wise) for the group was recorded in 1960 when the group recorded the Smokey Robinson ballad, After All, singing the bridge to the song whereas Ross, Wilson and Ballard sang verses. The song was featured on the groups 2000 box set The Supremes. Martin also has a spoken interlude line (spoken lead) during the song (Hes) Seventeen, and has brief solos (but not leads) on two other songs, she has the first note (and says the first the) and on the song The Tears, and does the countdown at the beginning of the song The Boy That Got Away (on which she also holds a few notes longer than the other group members near the end). She did sing the lead on (Hes) Seventeen during live performances the group made in 1961 and 1962. All album and unreleased tracks featuring Martins vocals have been released on various Motown and Supremes compilation albums.
