Diana Ross

Diana Ross first found fame with the Supremes, Motown’s ’60s girl group responsible for hits “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” and “You Can’t Hurry Love.” Though it would’ve been nearly impossible to match—let alone surpass—such success for a star of lesser caliber, she kicked off an even more successful solo career in 1970.

Soulful hits such as “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand),” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Upside Down,” and “Endless Love” kept her right on top, while she simultaneously made major waves in Hollywood. Her brilliant portrayal of Billie Holiday in 1972’s Lady Sings the Blues earned an Academy Award nomination, followed by fellow box-office bonanzas Mahogany and The Wiz.

This singer/actress continued to juggle both careers well into the next century where she remains a top-dollar concert attraction. Along the way, she earned a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction with the Supremes, received Kennedy Center Honors, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
