Hot Shots: Diana Ross Receives Presidential Medal Of Freedom From Barack Obama

Published: Wednesday 23rd Nov 2016 by Sam

As one of music’s most enduring divas, Diana Ross has many achievements to her name.

The Presidential Medal Of Freedom is the latest and was bestowed upon her yesterday by Barack Obama.

Ross was honored with the award alongside other notable names like Bill Gates and Ellen Degeneres at the White House. The accolade is the nation’s highest civilian award and recognizes exceptional meritorious service.

With a career spanning over five decades and countless charitable efforts to her name, The Supremes singer is undoubtedly deserving.

More pictures from the occasion after the jump…

Salute to The Boss, Ms Ross!

Hollywood is often unforgiving with the number and regularity of losses experienced. As such, it’s so important that we show appreciation to legends while they’re here.

Indeed, as the saying goes:

“Don’t give me roses when I’m gone. Give them to me while I’m still here and can smell them.”

Again, congrats!

    Diana Ross is so under-rated. Diana, Gladys, Aretha, Anita Baker and Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson set the standard. They need to be shown more love.
