Growing up in the 90’s I knew my mum was a huge Diana Ross and I loved her music but now not only do I appreciate her music I appreciate her attitude as a person. She spoke with decadence, proffessionalism and a general desire for peace in the industry. There may be so much competition to get ourselves heard but What we say matters more.
The Grammy’s Tribute to Diana Ross, Berry Gordy and the Motown Family on Sunday was long overdue and I am so glad they picked this year and in Black History Month to celebrate them for their oustanding contribution to the World of Music it is truly well deserved. I have always said Motown brought the funk and the vibe into the music industry. It may have been late but it was well deserved. I want to use this opportunity to speak to everyone out there in the world. Dreaming, working, collaborating and making the world a better place by being the best version of you. Though we encounter storms, enemies, threats and actions that disrespect who we are never forget He Lives In You. You will always have the ability to get back up and follow your dreams. Indeed there is no mountain too grea, No Valley too deep, No dream to high for us to live in peace and wish your neighbour well.
Diana Ross was born on March 26, 1944, in Detroit, Michigan. She began singing with friends as a teenager, and eventually formed the groundbreaking 1960s trio the Supremes, going on to have hits like “Come See About Me” and “You Can’t Hurry Love.” Ross left for a solo career in 1969, later reaching No. 1 with hits like “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “Love Hangover.” She starred in the films Mahogany and Lady Sings the Blues as well, earning an Oscar nomination for the latter. Despite personal and professional ups and downs, Ross has withstood the test of time as a performer with a career that spans more than four decades.
