The legendary Diana Ross is one of the most successful female artists of all-time, a musical treasure whose songs have, for decades, inspired romance, happiness and joy. She has had countless hit songs: in the USA alone, Diana Ross has scored 18 Billboard-number-one-hits with The Supremes, as a solo artist, and with classic duets such as Endless Love recorded with Lionel Richie. Diana Ross crosses musical borders with exhilarating ease - pop, disco, soul, and jazz, constantly reaching out to find new ways to inspire and enthral her audiences. Miss Ross has achieved a truly global iconic status: she has performed at historical events the world over, at the Olympics, at inaugurations for Presidents, during the Superbowl, at Nobel Peace Prize ceremonies. She has inspired many of the female artists who have followed her, such as Beyonce, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. As America's Kennedy Center observed when they honoured her in 2007: "Gladness has informed all of Diana Ross' body of work. This lady doesn't just sing the blues. She sings pure joy".
