Diana Ross: A Successful Career

Advertising Information for vagmusic

Diana Ross is one of the most successful female singers of the rock era. Together with her friends Florence Ballard, Barbara Martin and Mary Wilson, Ross formed the Supremes in 1961. This group continued as a trio after Martin left, but under the name of “Diana Ross and the Supremes” in 1967, when Ballard was replaced by Cindy Birdsong. This band scored 12 number one pop hits; however, after the last one, Ross decided to start a solo career.

Ross had a leading role in a film biography of Billie Holiday, Lady Sings the Blues, which allowed her to be nominated for an Academy Award and the soundtrack went to number one at that time. The title song of her Top Ten album Touch Me In The Morning topped the charts. A duet album with Marvin Gaye produced three chart hits. This artists also performed in her second movie, “Mahogany,” which brought her another chart-topping single in the theme song “Do You Know Where You’re Going To.” Thus, her next disc, “Love Hangover” reached into the Top Ten.

The results of Ross’ efforts demonstrated their talent and success, especially when she got gold and platinum selling albums with The Boss and Diana. Performing the title theme from the movie It’s My Turn, she scored a third Top Ten hit in 1980. Besides this, another movie theme with Lionel Richie on “Endless Love” was the biggest hit of her career. Hit after hit form part of all the music contribution of this singer toward those who love her music style.
