Motown_The_Musical

Diana Ross solo single-release songs that are performed in "Motown The Musical" include "Reach Out And Touch Somebody's Hand", "Remember Me", "Good Morning Heartache" and the grand finale, impressively led by the Diana character with the entire ensemble (portraying The Temptations, Mary Wells, The Four Tops, The Marvelettes, Michael & The Jackson 5, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, et al.), "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"!

Question:  Will Miss Diana Ross be arriving at the opening of "Motown The Musical" on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Sunday, April 14th?

Answer:  Of course!  Diana's real life character, portrayed to rave reviews, is the co-star, along with real-life character Berry Gordy, Jr., of the entire great show!
 FYI, besides astonishing careers, they also share a daughter Rhonda Gordy-Ross and a grandchild!   And, now, heeeeeeere's Diana:

Diana Ross:  Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award

After 50 years and counting in show business and with a stellar career of bringing joy to the World, inspiring other artists, having her work 'sampled', chart-busting, memorable songs, fourteen number one songs leading the number one girl group in history The Supremes and two dozen hit songs solo, including eight number one songs, The Grammys are fi-nal-ly presenting the one-and-only Diana Rosswith something that she has earned and deserved since her first #1 million-seller "Where Did Our Love Go" in 1964:  a Grammy award!  Ironically, the song "WDOLG" was ultimately inducted (in 1999) into the Grammy Hall-of-Fame!  It didn't sing itself!  Subsequently, "You Keep Me Hangin' On" was inducted into the Grammy HOF in 2000 and "Stop!" in 2001.  Years ago in the Gay community, and no doubt elsewhere worldwide, the question was "Who would get a Grammy first:  Diana Ross or Milli Vanilli?  Hey, Milli won!  The next bet was serious:  "Who would get the award first:  Diana Ross with a Grammy or Susan Lucci with an Emmy, since both stars went so long empty-handed though greatly deserving, as was well known by everyone.  Well, we had that bet wrong, too:  La Lucci got it first.  And, now, Diva Diana can triumphantly and supremely sing her song:  "It's My Turn"!

As leader of The Supremes, Diana and the girls were nominated for Grammy awards for "Baby Love" and "Stop! In The Name Of Love".  Surprisingly, there weren't several other #1 songs nominated.  Diana Ross's Grammy-nominated post-Supremes solo records include the following:  "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" {written by Ashford & Simpson}, "I Love You, Call Me" (album cut) {written by Aretha}, "Touch Me In The Morning" {written by Michael Masser}, "Love Hangover", "Your Love Is So Good For Me", "Ease On Down The Road" (with Michael Jackson), "Upside Down", "Endless Love" (with Lionel Richie; twice, for record-of-the-year and best duet) {written by Lionel} and "Muscles" {sensuously and gayly written by Michael Jackson}.
 
The 54th Annual Grammy Awards event is "The Happening" (speaking of DR #1s) on Sunday, February 12, 2012 televised on the CBS-TV network from Los Angeles, California, @ 8 p.m.  Look to see a euphoric and grand Diana!

Diana Ross:  Diana Extended 

Fierce photo of fierce-as-ever Diva Diana in fierce pose

Fierce musical release is this hottie on the "I'm Coming Out" anthem "25th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion".  The big surprise here is the 25th anniversary remix of Diana Ross & The Supremes' #1 finale signature song "Someday We'll Be Together" -- also from 1969!  "Someday" is very appropriately, smartly and gay-ly included on this solo Diana Ross compact disc.  This great "SWBT" dance remix became the unofficial theme song of "Stonewall 25".  People, who were already reminiscing back to the Stonewall Era songs, instantly had the authentic music (with a new twist) for great  accompaniment.  "Someday Well Be Together", the 1969 climatic song of The Stonewall, is particularly poignant for all of the Gay veterans of the New York City Stonewall Rebellion in 1969.

Diana Ross:  The Motown Flipsides (1970 - 1982)


Diva-ishly included in this incredibly unique and very valuable compact disc, "Diana Ross:  The Motown Flipsides" from 1970 to 1982, are almost all of the Motown "flipside" (B-side record) songs of Diana Ross such as Ashford & Simpson's "Can't It Wait Until Tomorrow", Burt Bacharach's "They Long To Be Close To You" (live!), the Las Vegas-ish "I'm A Winner", the pensive "God Bless The Child", the Marvin Gaye-authored and pleading "Save The Children", the happy-in-love "Together", the gay-ly campy "Kiss Me Now", the classic advisory "Smile", an album-titled song "Baby It's Me", the heartfelt "Friend To Friend" and the delightfully campy "Old Funky Rolls", among a dozen other Ross-ities!  (This compact disc should be but is not yet part of the Motown Records catalog.)
