"From chart topping years with The Supremes to a standout solo career Diana is undoubtedly the Queen of Motown"


The Essential: Diana Ross chronicles how Ross became one of the most successful female artists ever, producing a staggering 77 hit singles in a 50-year career, hears how she took on Hollywood carving out an Oscar-nominated role as an actress in the process. We also hear from fans who discuss their favourite Diana moments – including Boy George who says affectionately – “I think she’d walk around with a wind machine attached to her if she could…” and how prescient she was in claiming gay icon status years before Madonna, Kylie and Lady Gaga.
