Ms Diana Ross


among all Motown singers Diana Ross was my most favorite due to her distinct and angelic voice
and her songs that was truly inspiring and can able to connect to its listener

Diana Ross became a household name in the '60s as the lead singer of the Supremes, the group that turned out classic hits like "Stop! In The Name Of Love," "You Can't Hurry Love" and "You Keep Me Hanging On." She launched her solo career in 1970,

My very first song that i heard from her was the song "If we hold on together" as it was been sang on our graduation after that i became addicted to Diana's Tracks of music

she was one of the reason why i love and been attracted to the Old school Music even at my very young age

"TOUCH ME IN THE MORNING"


Touch Me in the Morning" is a song recorded by Diana Ross. It was a number one single in 1973.

The song marked a turning point in both the careers of Ross and Masser as it reinvigorated Ross' singing career just as she was getting rave reviews for her acting debut in Lady Sings the Blues and introduced Masser to an audience that would become accustomed to his ballad-drenched songs.

Masser would go on to produce more songs for Ross and eventually worked with Whitney Houston.

TOP 3 GREATEST HITS FROM DIANA ROSS

"WHEN YOU TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME"


When You Tell Me That You Love Me" is a 1991 song released as a single by American soul singer Diana Ross, released on the Motown label. The song, a sentimental ballad, was one of the bigger hits featured on Ross' 1991 album, The Force Behind the Power, peaking at number thirty-seven on the US Billboard R&B singles chart while peaking at number-two on the UK Top 75 singles chart.
and this song was re-recorded by her together with the leading boyband of the 90's "west life"

" DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO (THEME FROM MAHOGANY)




Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)" is a song written by Michael Masser and Gerald Goffin, and recorded by American singer Diana Ross as the theme to the 1975 Motown/Paramount film Mahogany (see 1975 in music). Produced by Masser, the song is a ballad that portrays its protagonist (Ross) as a poor African-American who becomes a successful Paris fashion designer, in keeping with the film the song was featured in. Remembering the happiness she had in the past, the song's character faces the reality of a loveless future and decisions that brought her to this point. The chorus, "Do you know where you're going to, do you like the things that life is showing you," propagates the song's sense of nostalgia and loss.

"ENDLESS LOVE"



Endless Love" is a song originally recorded as a duet between soul singer Diana Ross and pop/soul singer Lionel Richie, who wrote the song. In this ballad, the singers declare their "endless love" for one another. It was covered by soul singer Luther Vandross with pop/R&B singer Mariah Carey, and also by country music singer Kenny Rogers.
The soulful composition became the biggest-selling single of Ross' career, while it was one of several hits for Richie as the 1980s progressed. Ross recorded a solo version of the song for her first RCA Records album, Why Do Fools Fall in Love?, but the famous version was her last hit on Motown. The song was nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Original Song" for Richie, and was the second song with which Ross was involved that was nominated for an Oscar. It also won a 1982 American Music Award for "Favorite Pop/Rock Single".

THE GREATEST HIT FROM DIANA ROSS

"AINT NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH"

this song almost became the trade mark for Diana ross
that everytime we say Diana Ross this song always follows


Diana Ross had recorded a different version of this song, which was more faithful to the Terrell-Gaye '67 version, while Diana was still in The Supremes. The Supremes covered a duet version of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" also with The Temptations. The song was an album cut from a joint LP released by Motown Records in 1968 on the two superstar groups, entitled "Diana Ross & the Supremes Join the Temptations."
