Diana Ross (Diana Ross, Diane Ernestine Earle Ross, March 26, 1944-) is one of America’s most successful black female singers and a major figure in the black music world.
1959-1970, The Supremes
Born in Detroit, Michigan. In 1959, when she was in high school, she formed Primetz, a four-woman chorus group. Primets signed with Motown in 1961 and made their debut as The Supremes as a trio.
As the lead singer of The Supremes, Diana is “Where Did Our Love Goes”, “Stop in the Name of Love”, “You Can’t Hurry”, “Keep Me Hangin On”, and “Love”. He released a number of hit songs such as “Hakaku Naku” and became one of the top stars. Most of her hits are by Holland-Dozier-Holland, a team of Motown’s signature composers. Originally, The Supremes was one of the most prominent Diana, but in 1967, the group name was officially changed to Diana Ross & The Supremes with the change of members.
1970-1981, her solo activity started
Diana left the group in 1970, when The Supremes’ popularity subsided. She begins her career as a solo singer. Even after turning solo, starting with “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” released in the same year, “Touch Me in the Morning” and “Theme From’Mahogany’ (Do You Know Where You)” “Re Going To))” (also famous as a CM song for Nescafe in Japan) and other hits in the United States, establishing itself as a superstar.
1972-1999, movie appearance
See “Mahogany Story” and “The Wiz (Movie)” for details.
She made her debut as a film actress in 1971 when she starred in Billie Holiday’s biopic “Billie Holiday Story / Strange Fruits”. There was her criticism of her cast, but her performance received critic praise when the film was released in October 1972. Leonard Feather, a jazz critic and holiday friend, praised “she accurately expresses the essence of Lady Day (a nickname for Holiday).” Her performance in Los Angeles was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for Best Actress, and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. The soundtrack was also a hit, winning the number one spot on the Billboard 200 for two weeks in a row, shipping 300,000 copies in eight days after its release, breaking the record at the time. With nearly 2 million copies sold, it became one of the best-selling Los Angeles albums.
He also starred in Ross’s second movie, Mahogany, which was released in 1975. She re-starred with Billy Dee Williams, who co-starred in her previous work, and Ross herself was in charge of costume design. It was a story that a woman who aspired to be a fashion designer became a runway model while getting into trouble and became the highest peak in the industry. The director was originally Tony Richardson, but he dropped out in the middle of production and was taken over by Berry Gordy. Gordy and Ross clashed during the shoot, and Ross left production before the shoot ended, so Gordy appointed her secretary Edna Anderson as a body double. Successful at the box office, but not well received by critics, Time magazine accused Gordy of “wasting Diana Ross, one of America’s most talented people.” In 1976, the theme song sung by Ross won first place in the Billboard magazine rankings.
In 1977, Motown acquired the rights to film The Wiz, which was performed on Broadway by all African-American performers in L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Initially, many stage performers were supposed to appear in the movie. However, the role of Dorothy was played by Stephanie Mills in the stage version, but Ross was cast as Dorothy as Ross asked film producer Rob Cohen to cast himself. This changed Dorothy’s script from her student to a school teacher. She was cast by former Motown Michael Jackson, not the actor who also played Kakashi on stage. The movie “With” was produced for $ 24 million, but since its release in October 1978, the box office revenue has been $ 21.05 million. Prior to its release, it had sold television rights to CBS for $ 10 million, but Motown and Universal lost $ 10.4 million. It was the most expensive production cost for a musical movie at that time. The failure of the film ended his short career in Ross’s blockbuster film, moving the production of all-black performers, popular during the Blaxploitation era of the early and mid-1970s, away from Hollywood. “With” was Ross’s last Motown movie.
Ross has been successful with the movie theme song. In early 1973, the Ross version of her holiday “Good Morning Heartache” wasn’t a big hit, but in late 1975, “Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To)” was Ross’s third. It became the first place of. Three years later, Ross and Michael Jackson’s “Ease on Down the Road” was a decent hit. Their second duet, “Brand New Day,” which was part of the “With” ensemble, was a hit abroad. In the late 1980s, the theme song for the movie “It’s My Turn” was ranked in the top 10. In 1981, he collaborated with Lionel Richie, a former Commodores singer-songwriter, on the theme song for the movie “Endless Love.” The theme song “Endless Love” was nominated for an Academy Award for theme song, became the last hit song on Motown Records, and became the number one song of the year. In 1988, Ross recorded the theme song for The Land Before Time. The theme song “If We Hold on Together” became a worldwide hit and won first place in Japan.
In 1993, she starred in the television movie Out of Darkness and resumed her actress career. Her performance was praised and became her third Golden Globe nomination. She starred in the television movie “Double Platinum” with Brandy in 1999, and shortly thereafter the album “Every Day Is a New Day” was released.
1981-1999, development of solo activities
The 1980 “Upside Down” broke new ground with the disco sound and sexy image strategy produced by Nile Rodgers. The following year, in 1981, the duet song “Endless Love” with Lionel Richie recorded No. 1 in the United States. It is still a staple of duet ballads.
After “Missing You” dedicated to Marvin Gaye (who released a duet in 1973), who died unexpectedly in 1984, he was not blessed with hits in the United States, but continued to be a stable favorite in the United Kingdom. In addition, in 1990, “If We Hold on Together” inserted the theme song of the TV drama “Until Memories Change”, Isuzu Motors “BIGHORN”, and “Thanks to everyone in Tonneruzu”. It was appointed as a song and has recorded an unusual hit in Western music. In 1993, he sang “When You Dream” in a tie-up with the TV program “Hirake! Ponkikki”.
In 1985, he joined USA for Africa and took lead vocals on the bridge part of We Are the World.
Since the 1990s, he has retired from the front line due to troubles between public and private, but since he is a great figure in the popular music world, he occasionally appears at commemorative events. He defended Michael Jackson in times of incident and trouble and appeared in Michael’s documentaries.
In 2000, she performed with Mariah Carey and Donna Summer at “Diva’s Live” Diana Ross Tribute “” at Madison Square Garden in New York, and in 2005 she was an Irish idol. The group Westlife released a duet song with Diana and returned to the scene after a long time.
In addition, Michael Jackson, who has been close friends since childhood, was nominated in his will as a guardian after the death of Michael’s mother Catherine, who is the guardian of Michael’s children, but attended Michael’s memorial service and burial ceremony. He has not made a public statement as to whether he will receive this.
His son and singer Evan Ross was engaged to Ashlee Simpson in January 2014 and married in August. A girl was born in 2015.
Received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016.
