Diana Ross gave what was billed as “a very special performance” at this year’s 61st annual Grammy Awards on February 10. The Recording Academy honored the icon and celebrated her greatest musical accomplishments during the broadcast.

The occasion was in advance of the singing legend’s 75th birthday. Ross was born March 26, 1944 and has many 2019 concerts celebratory scheduled. (See below.)

Widely acclaimed as one of the greatest entertainers of all time, Ross has an almost countless number of big singles.

With the Supremes, Ross earned an astounding 12 #1 pop singles from 1964’s “Where Did Our Love Go” through 1969’s “Someday We’ll Be Together.” In between were such classics as “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” “You Can’t Hurry Love” and “Love Child.”

Her #1 solo hits include  “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Upside Down,” “Love Hangover” and “Touch Me in the Morning.”

Ross received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016, the nation’s highest civilian honor. She is an Academy Award nominee (for her role as Billie Holiday in the 1972 film Lady Sings the Blues), was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Supremes in 1988, and in 2012 received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
