Gotta add the fact that "Losing You" was already written by Norman Whitfield in a key that would purposely make Ruffin strain to sing, to wring out the emotion of the lyrics on top of Ruffin's soulful delivery, as was done before with "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and "Beauty is Only Skin Deep" and would continue throughout the rest of his career.

The partial story behind this particular performance, to my understanding, was Diana didn't want to sing "Losing You" in its original key or she couldn't comfortably manage.

So she called Berry Gordy who pulled some strings and convinced everyone to up the key of the song (by how much I can't remember).

Ruffin didn't care for the decision (understatement), but in this context he really adapted, forcing himself to sing higher than he normally would and straining his voice more than he would have without going into his falsetto voice.

So after all that, folks that argue he is just screaming and hollering, generalized traits of singers brought up in Gospel (i.e. Little Richard, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, etc.), gotta at least give the man some credit for pushing himself, in the moment, as a vocalist.

He played Diana's little game of vocalist chicken, matched her, and beat her (depending on who you ask).

I used to watch Ed Sullivan every Sunday, but I don't remember this performance. I do, however, remember lots of other Supremes and Temptations performances, including the world debut for Runaway Child, Running Wild, Love Child and other thrilling performances.

RIP Mary Wilson. The Motown greats are all getting up there in age, but their young superb voices will always be with us!
