If she didn’t receive another award in her life, Diana Ross would still go down as one of music’s most iconic figures. It’s only fitting then, that if the diva’s honoured, it’s by the most prestigious award body – the Grammy’s.
And honoured Miss Ross will be on the 54th annual Grammy Awards ceremony in little over a month’s time.
Full story below…
The legend, whose career began in The Supremes before progressing into a wildly successful solo run (see: 18 #1’s), has been named as the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Ross, 67, will be recognised alongside Apple’s Steve Jobs and Glen Campbell, for her contributions to the music industry at the February 12th event.
Congratulations are most certainly in order for the star, who is as renown for her success, as she is for the controversies surrounding how she sustained it (see: Berry Gordy, Dreamgirls, and Florence Ballard). In any case, it’s safe to say without the ‘Chain Reaction’ singer, the careers of Beyonce, Michael Jackson, among others, would have taken a very different path. So for that, and much more, we are thankful.
The 54th Grammy Awards airs live from Los Angeles on February 12th 2012.
