Lead singer of the Supremes, successful solo artist and actress, shaper of the Motown/R&B sound the world knows of today are all accomplishments Diana Ross can list. During her 10 year reign as the Supremes' front woman, Diana Ross helped to shift Motown from it's Detroit roots to the world stage. Upon leaving the Supremes in 1970, Ross pursued her own solo career in music, while branching off into acting for film, television and Broadway. Garnering major recognition world-wide as a performer, in addition to 12 Grammy nominations, an Academy Award nomination and over 100 million records sold during her career--Diana's list of achievements is exhaustive to say the least. If you are not acquainted with Diana Ross, whom Billboard magazine named "Female Entertainer of the Century" in 1976, now's a better time than any for you to do so.
