Wonderlove were Stevie Wonder‘s backing group.
Stevie Wonder formed the group The Third Generation in the late 1960s to accompany him on tour. The group was made up of Lynda Laurence (who would later join The Supremes), her sister, Sundray Tucker, and their cousin Terri Hendricks. After a short while, The Third Generation became Wonderlove, Stevie’s more permanent backing group.
Wonderlove were an all-female group (all the singers, anyway) assembled by Stevie. They feature on many of his 1970s recordings, a notable example being “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours”. Wonderlove often opened Stevie’s live shows with their own songs and then performed alongside him.
The group consisted (at some point or another) of female singers Alex Brown, Lynn Davis, Lani Groves, Shirley Brewer, Carolyn Dennis (who was married to Bob Dylan) and Windy Barnes. Minnie Riperton and Deniece Williams, who would go on to find success in their own right, were also part of the group, along with future Supreme Susaye Greene.
