She was born Diane Ernestine Ross in Detroit, Michigan on March 26, 1944. She was a member of The Primettes in 1960. Diana Ross joined The Supremes and was lead singer from 1961 to 1969 before embarking on a solo career.
In the 1970s she turned to films and starred in and was nominated for an Oscar for the 1972 movie Lady Sings The Blues. She appeared in other films Mahogany and The Wiz that also starred Michael Jackson. She even had her own Broadway show, An Evening With Diana Ross in 1976.
