Diana Ross

There’s no discussing Motown Records or their impact on the music industry without talking about Diana Ross. She first rose to fame with the group The Supremes before launching her own solo career. Two years after dropping her first solo album, Ross made her film debut with Lady Sings The Blues. Beginning in 1970, the legendary singer went on to release an album almost every year until the early 90’s — and she still managed to squeeze in a few more acting roles with Mahogany and The Wiz. Two of her children, Tracee Ellis Ross and Evan Ross, have followed her footsteps into the world of entertainment, as they pursue acting careers.
