Diana Ross, born and bred in Detroit, came to fame as the lead singer of Motown’s number one group, The Supremes. Ross and The Supremes still hold the title for the top-selling female group of all time with 12 number hit singles including "Where Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love," "Come See About Me," and "Love Child." Continuing on after leaving The Supremes, Ross’s one-of-a-kind voice brought to life major hits like “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “I’m Coming Out,” and “Upside Down.” In an era and industry dominated by men, Ross made an indelible mark, becoming Billboard magazine’s "Female Entertainer of the Century” in 1967.
