Diana Ross at Ravinia Festival

In a remarkable career spanning over 40 years, Diana Ross has proven herself the consummate music artist as well as one of the most iconic female singers of all time. Begininng in the sixties, as lead singer of the world renowned singning group, The Supremes, and as a solo performer Ms. Ross achieved the unprecedented feat of twelve number one singles in the USA, rivaled only by The Beatles for the position of the biggest hit group of that generation. In 1970, Ms. Ross moved to a solo career and for more than three decades has continued to produce an endless stream of chart singles and sell-out tours, at the same time showing herself to be also a high achieving business woman unafraid to take on new challenges and new directions which her remarkable career have brought to her. It was something remarked upon by South African President Nelson Mandela who at his first meeting with her referred to her as "someone who always seems to be running, never walking, she is an inspiration to us all". In 2004 McNally Smith College of Music honored her by the establishment of a full four year scholarship in her name. The Diana Ross Performance Scholarship is awards each year to an outstanding student who is pursuining a Bachelor in Music. And so the legend continues.
