Background Articles and Videos

Diana Ross

“…Diana Ross (born Diana Ernestine Ross; March 26, 1944) is an American singer and actress. During the 1960s, she helped shape the Motown Sound as lead singer of The Supremes, before leaving the group for a solo career on January 15, 1970. Since the beginning of her career with The Supremes and as a solo artist, Ross has sold more than 100 million records.

During the 1970s and through the mid 1980s, Ross was one of the most successful female artists, crossing over into film, television and Broadway. She received an Best Actress Academy Award nomination for her 1972 role as Billie Holiday in Lady Sings the Blues. She won a Golden Globe award for Lady Sings the Blues. She won American Music Awards, garnered twelve Grammy Award nominations, and won a Tony Award for her one-woman show, An Evening with Diana Ross in 1977.

In 1976, Billboard magazine named her the “Female Entertainer of the Century.” In 1993, the Guinness Book Of World Records declared Diana Ross the most successful female music artist in history with a total of eighteen American number-one singles: twelve as lead singer of The Supremes and six as a soloist (she was later surpassed by Mariah Carey). Ross was the first female solo artist to score six number-ones. This feat puts her in a tie for fifth place among solo female artists with the most No. 1s on the Hot 100. [2] She is also one of the few recording artists to have two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame–one as a solo artist and the other as a member of The Supremes. In December 2007, she received a John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Honors Award.

Including her work with The Supremes, Ross has recorded 61 studio albums. Ross is a lyric soprano. …”

The Supremes

“…The Supremes, an American female singing group, were the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s. Originally founded as The Primettes in Detroit, Michigan in 1959, The Supremes’ repertoire included doo-wop, pop, soul, Broadway show tunes, psychedelic soul and disco. They were the most commercially successful of Motown’s acts and are, to-date, America’s most successful vocal group[1] with twelve number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100.[2] Most of these hits were written and produced by Motown’s main songwriting and production team, Holland-Dozier-Holland. At their peak in the mid-1960s, The Supremes rivaled The Beatles in worldwide popularity,[2] and their success made it possible for future African-American R&B and soul musicians to find mainstream success.[2]

Founding members Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, Diana Ross and Betty McGlown,all from the Brewster-Douglass public housing project in Detroit,[3] formed The Primettes as the sister act to The Primes (with Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks, who would go on to form The Temptations).[3] Barbara Martin replaced McGlown in 1960, and the group signed with Motown the following year as The Supremes. Martin left the act in early 1962, and Ross, Ballard and Wilson carried on as a trio.

During the mid-1960s, The Supremes achieved mainstream success with Ross as lead singer. In 1967, Motown president Berry Gordy renamed the group Diana Ross & The Supremes and replaced Ballard with Cindy Birdsong. Ross left to pursue a solo career in 1970 and was replaced by Jean Terrell, at which point the group’s name returned to The Supremes. After 1972, the lineup of The Supremes changed more frequently; Lynda Laurence, Scherrie Payne and Susaye Greene all became members of the group during the mid-1970s. The Supremes disbanded in 1977 after an eighteen-year run. …”

 “…Author Mark Ribowsky couldn’t have known it, but his timing was perfect. His new book The Supremes: A Saga of Motown Dreams, Success and Betrayal was published by Da Capo on July 1 — a week after the shocking death of Michael Jackson.

The-Supremes Of course, Ribowsky’s book focuses on, clockwise from bottom right, Diana Ross, Mary Wilson  and Florence Ballard, following the members of the queens of the girl group from their origins as the Primettes in the Detroit projects to their dominance of the pop charts in the ’60s — they had more No. 1 hits in the era than anyone but Elvis and the Beatles — and beyond. …”
