Diana Ross

This incredibly talented singer and actress whose career has spanned over 50 years has won seven American Music Awards, a Tony Award, and she was the first African-American woman to win a Golden Globe award. Ross is one of the very few artists who has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame; one as a solo artist and another for her success with her previous band, "The Supremes." She was also included in the “Guinness Book of World Records” in 1993 as the most successful female artist of all-time because of her popularity in the U.S. and the U.K. as she has had an outstanding 70 hit singles. Ross has also sold more than 100 million records worldwide and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
