She was born on March 26, 1944 who was named Diana Ernestine Earle Ross was a professional singer, record producer, actress and song writer. Ever since she was a kid, Ross had an edge to be a professional singer which explains her contributions with The Supremes in the 1960s.
She also had passion with performing in stage and was even regarded and awarded in the Academy award and Golden Globe Award for her fantastic performance in the so called Lady Sings the Blues.
Ross has been awarded by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful woman who have made it to the field of music in the United States and United Kingdom. And all throughout her career, she dedicated everything with her heart which helped her gain $300 million net worth.
Diana Ross grew up in Detroit and was Ernestine ad Fred Ross Sr.’s second daughter. Her father worked for the military, while her mom was into teaching. Diana claimed that her name should have been “Diane” instead of Diana, due to some clerical errors on her birth certificate. She usually introduced herself Diane, but they recognized her as Diana.
As young as 15, Diana started her career with the Primettes which was a still part of the Primes. Ross was their lead vocalist, which led the group to a successful performance every time. As a compassionate singer, she also served as a hair dresser and designer for the group to look fabulous with every performance that they had. It took them a lot of challenges before they even made it to the top; they were even provided with a condition that they have to change their group’s name, which eventually became “The Supremes.”
The Supremes had their first song entitled Where Did Our Love Go, which was surprisingly successful all throughout; they even made it to the UK top forty. Every singer wanted to hit the United Kingdom song lists, and they made it. The group has been successful through the years. And since Ross was the reason behind the group’s success, their name was again changed to Diana Ross & The Supremes.
Everyone was tantalized and surprised when Ross started to act for her film Lady Sings the Blues which reached its peak even in the Billboard 200. She had massive offers and even had a second film entitled Mahogany.
Ross has been trying to have her solo career work out for her, but she eventually reunited with the Supremes for her to be able to deliver her skills properly and compassionately just like the old times.
Unfortunately, in 2002, Ross spent almost 3 years without performing since she committed DUI. However, it never stopped her in pursuing what she wanted in life. She had her tour in Europe right after all the challenges that she’s been through. And by 2005, she participated with Rod Stewart‘s Thanks for the Memory: The Great American Songbook, Volume IV. No one ever thought that she would be able to revive herself after all the controversies.
Diana was romantically in love with Berry Gordy who helped her reach the peak of her career and even had a child named Rhonda Suzanne Silberstein. But it didn’t lead to a happily ever after marriage, since Ross got married to a different man name Robert Ellis Silberstein, which she two more daughters with. However, they had to end their marriage due to personal issues. She had another marriage which ended up the same way like the first.
