Diana Ross performs at Foxwoods’ Grand Theater
Diana Ross began her legendary career in the 1960s, as lead singer of The Supremes. They had 12 No. 1 pop singles, and were not just the most commercially successful girl group of that time, but among the top five pop/rock/soul acts of the decade.
In 1970 she embarked on her successful solo career, which has taken her around the globe. Ross, 73, will bring her “In the Name of Love Tour” to Foxwoods’ Grand Theater on Sunday, July 30.
The iconic singer — who is also a songwriter, actress and record producer — was born and raised in Detroit. She’s known for hits such as “Touch Me in the Morning,” “I’m Coming Out” and “Endless Love,” among many others.
Over the course of her career, Ross has received numerous awards. In 2016, she accepted the Presidential Medal of Freedom from then-President Barack Obama. She was also honored by McNally Smith College of Music, in Minnesota, which established an annual four-year scholarship in her name in 2004.
Ross is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and a recipient of the Grammy Awards’ highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award. But she has said her five children are her greatest legacy.
