Diane Ernestine Earle Ross (born March 26, 1944), known professionally as Diana Ross, is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer. Born and raised in Detroit, she rose to fame as the lead singer of the vocal group The Supremes, which, during the 1960s, became Motown's most successful act, and is to this day the United States'

 most successful vocal group, as well as one of the world's best-selling girl groups of all time. As part of the Supremes, her success made it possible for future African-American R&B and soul acts to find mainstream success. The group released a record-setting twelve number-one hit singles on the US Billboard Hot 100, including the hits "Where Did Our Love Go", "Baby Love", "Come See About Me", "Stop! In the Name of Love", "You Can't Hurry Love", "You Keep Me Hangin' On", "Love Child", and "Someday We'll Be Together".


Following her departure from the Supremes in 1970, Ross released her eponymous debut solo album that same year, which contained the hits "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" and the number-one hit "Ain't No Mountain High Enough". She later released the album Touch Me in the Morning in 1973; its title track reached number 1, as her second solo hit. That same year, her album "Lady Sings The Blues", which was the original soundtrack of her film based on the life of jazz singer Billie Holiday,

 went to no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums Chart. By 1975, the Mahogany soundtrack included her third number-one hit, "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)". Her eponymous 1976 album included her fourth number-one hit, "Love Hangover". In 1979, Ross released the album The Boss. Her 1980 semi-eponymous album Diana reached number 2 on the US Billboard albums chart, and spawned the number-one hit "Upside Down", and the international hit "I'm Coming Out". After leaving Motown, Ross achieved her sixth and final US number-one hit, with the duet "Endless Love".


Ross has also ventured into acting, with a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award-nominated performance for her performance in the film Lady Sings the Blues (1972). She also starred in two other films, Mahogany (1975) and The Wiz (1978), later acting in the television films Out of Darkness (1994), for which she also was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, and Double Platinum (1999). Ross was named the "Female Entertainer of the Century" by Billboard magazine.


In 1993, the Guinness Book of World Records declared Ross the most successful female music artist in history, due to her success in the United States and United Kingdom for having more hits than any female artist in the charts, with a career total of 70 hit singles with her work with the Supremes and as a solo artist. Ross has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, when her releases with the Supremes and as a solo artist are tallied. In 1988, Ross was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as member of the Supremes,

alongside Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard. She was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 2007, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016. She is a 12-time Grammy nominee, never earning a competitive honor, but later became the recipient of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. In December 2016, Billboard magazine named her the 50th most successful dance artist of all time.

Diana Ross - Why Do Fools Fall Love




Why Do Fools Fall in Love is a 1981 album by American singer Diana Ross on the RCA label. It reached #15 in the USA (#4 R&B), #17 in the UK and the top ten in Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands.

It was the first album Ross recorded after leaving the Motown label, when she signed a $20 million deal with RCA. Originally, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards were slated to produce the follow-up to the platinum Diana album. However, their schedules were filled with commitments to also produce Debbie Harry's solo debut, Johnny Mathis and another Chic album. Ross had given her word to RCA president, Robert Summers to deliver an album for the 1981 holiday selling season.

The album was the first to be produced by the singer herself, and it became her second RIAA-certified platinum album (That was also misleading, since Motown was inconsistent to joining the RIAA for most of their 1960s and 1970s releases. She would have considerably more certifications). It was also certified Gold in the UK and Canada.

The album includes the Top 10 hits "Why Do Fools Fall in Love" and "Mirror Mirror". It also includes "Work That Body", co-written by Ross with Paul Jabara and Ray Chew. Though it just missed the Top 40 in the United States, "Work That Body" was a Top 10 hit in the U.K. and Top 15 in The Netherlands. A solo version of "Endless Love" is also included on the album,

 a rerecording of her number one duet with Lionel Richie from earlier that year. "It's Never Too Late" was also released as a single in some international territories.
Ross also embarked on a world tour in support of the album.
The album was remastered and re-released on September 2, 2014 by Funky Town Grooves, with bonus material.
