In The Name of Love, You Can’t Hurry Love, You Keep Me Hangin’ On, Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and many more.
As lead singer of The Supremes, Diana helped shape the sound of popular music, changing the landscape and paved way for contemporary music. Her love of life, never-ending wonder, the appreciation of goals and achievements and sheer human spirit define the artist that is Diana Ross and continue to make her one of the most identifiable, unique, beloved and influential singers of successive pop generations.
Ms. Ross was recently bestowed the country’s highest honor, the Medal of Freedom, presented by President Obama. Her international achievements were acknowledged by the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors in 2007, which celebrated her lustrous career of excellence in music, film, television and theatre, her humanitarian work and contributions to American culture. The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences celebrated her remarkable career in 2012 with their highest honor, The Life Time Achievement Award.
Singer-songwriter, Rhonda Ross, is an international Social-Artist, who explores the social environment around her and her relationship to it – questioning constructions of race, gender, sexuality and spirituality through her lyrics. Her original music lives in the gap between jazz, funk and gospel while her lyrics delve into life’s biggest questions and answers. Rhonda’s music flows straight from her essence and her bright spirit uplifts everyone in the room.
