Diana Ross: In the Name of Love Tour
Peace Concert Hall
Simply put, Diana Ross is a living legend - though her illustrious and prolific career is far from simple, spanning multiple disciplines and genres...
As the lead singer and a founding member of The Supremes, Ross helped place R&B and soul music at the top of the charts, paving the way for other African-American musicians under the Motown record label. At the top of their popularity, The Supremes rivaled the Beatles, and to this day, maintain their record as one of the most popular female music groups of all time.
When the group finally disbanded in 1970, Ross kept the momentum going by releasing a solo album, reaching #1 with the hit Ain't no Mountain High Enough. From there, she continued to give fans exactly what they wanted, even making the jump to film and snagging multiple Golden Globe nominations, as well as an Oscar nomination for the 1972 film Lady Sings the Blues.
With over 50 years in the business, a score of #1 songs and a ton of awards won, you might think Ross would want to kick back and retire. Though if her extensive touring schedule is any indication, this music legend is doing exactly what she loves and has a whole lot more to give.
