Diana Ross was one of the most powerful voices back when she was the lead vocalist of the all-female group The Supremes in the 1960s. The Supremes became Motown’s most successful act of that time period and remain the best-charting girl group in history. Some of their best singles, which also made it to the Billboard Hot 100 include,  “Where Did Our Love Go”, “Baby Love”, “Come See About Me”, “Stop! In the Name of Love”, “You Can’t Hurry Love”, “You Keep Me Hangin’ On”, “Love Child”, and “Someday We’ll Be Together”.

Ross did not begin her solo work until she left The Supremes in the 1970s, releasing her debut solo album simply called Diana Ross. That’s when the song “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” became a Top 20 Pop hit and her song “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” became a number-one Pop hit.

Among the accolades Diana Ross has received include 6 American Music Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Grammys in 2012, a Golden Globe Award, and many more to name. It’s safe to say that Ross has become one of Motown’s biggest successes and is not stopping anytime soon!
