ABOUT Diana Ross
Diana Ross takes the stage at Caesars Circus Maximus Theater for an Atlantic City show on June 20, 2014.
In a remarkable career spanning over 40 years, R&B and soul singer Diana Ross has proven herself the consummate music artist as well as the most successful female singer of all time.
As lead singer of the ‘60s pop group The Supremes, she achieved the unprecedented feat of fourteen consecutive number one hit records, rivaling The Beatles for the position of most successful recording act of that generation.
To the delight of her fans both young and old, Diana Ross is returning to her roots and embarking on a national tour with The Supremes, Lynda Laurence and Scherrie Payne. The Return To Love Tour gives her the chance to perform the songs that seduced and dazzled an entire generation since she left the group in 1970.
Diana Ross also has the distinction of being honored with VH1 Divas 2000: A Tribute to Diana Ross. Some of the acts paying tribute to this legend include Mariah Carey, Faith Hill and Donna Summer. In 1970, Diana Ross moved to a solo career and has continued to produce an endless stream of number one records and sell-out world concerts for two decades.
Her repertoire includes the works of such diverse and legendary writers as Sam Cooke, Jules Stein and Rogers & Hart. She showed her extraordinary gift for jazz performance portraying Billie Holiday in Lady Sings The Blues, for which she earned an Academy Award nomination. Diana Ross has also recorded with Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and Julio Iglesias. Her duet with Lionel Richie, "Endless Love," topped the U.S. charts for nine weeks – one of the longest residencies at the top of the chart in the history of American music.
