In honor of Black History Month, Motown, a record company founded by Berry Gordy in 1960 in Detroit, Mi., helped to put African American artists such as Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder on the maps.
“A daughter of Detroit, Diana Ross helped create the sound of Motown with her iconic voice. From her groundbreaking work with The Supremes to a solo career that has spanned decades, she has influenced generations of young artists and shaped our nation’s musical landscape. In addition to a Grammy LIfetime Achievement Award and countless musical accolades, Diana Ross has distinguished herself as an actor, earning an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe award.
With over 25 albums, unforgettable hit singles, and live performances that continue to captivate audiences around the world, Diana Ross still reigns supreme.”
