Before Beyoncé there was Diana Ross. Any female singer who wears more than one outfit during their concert owes their career to the great Diana Ross. She’s that influential. She’s that important. When you attend a Diana Ross concert you’re seeing Billboard Magazine’s “Female Entertainer of the Century,” a Kennedy Center Honoree, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Diana Ross still has the voice and the moves to put on one heck of a live show (and change her outfit several times). She’s ebullient, energetic, and oozes presence—that’s saying something because she was born when Franklin Roosevelt was president. With Diana Ross tickets you’re in for a night of nostalgia. She probably won’t perform a song younger than 20 years, but that’s okay. She’s a legend and has earned the right to rest on her impressive laurels.
Who Is Diana Ross?
Diana Ross is a singer who began her career fronting The Supremes, one of the most successful pop acts of the 1960s and one of the most successful all-female groups of all-time.
In the 1970s and early 1980s, Ross launched a successful solo career (which spawned six number one singles) and starred in several major motion pictures. If you combine The Supremes’ sales figures with Ross’ solo career sales figures, you get a total of more than 140 million records sold.
Diana Ross has a vocal range of three octaves. Of course, it’s the way she sings—her ability to connect, the way she emotes—that made her a legend.
