From a press release:

When you look at her career, both as a solo artist and the lead singer of The Supremes, Diana Ross is one of the most successful female singers of our era, even being named the “Female Entertainer of the Century” by Billboard magazine.

She returns to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Wednesday, April 13 at 7 p.m.

Tickets, which range from $65.50-$89.50, are on sale now and can be purchased at, the Event Center box office (77 Sands Blvd., Bethlehem),, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 800-745-3000.

As a member of the Motown super group, Ross garnered 12 No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Top 100, making The Supremes one of the bestselling “Girl Groups” of all time. Hits like “You Can’t Hurry Love,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “You Keep Me Hanging On,” and “Someday We’ll Be Together” have been part of the soundtrack of everyday life for decades.

As a solo artist, the success continued as she earned six more No. 1 hits with songs such as “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand),” “Love Hangover,” and “Touch Me in the Morning.”

Ross also branched out into acting, starring in a film biography of Billie Holiday, “Lady Sings the Blues” – the soundtrack went to No. 1, and she was nominated for an Academy Award. This was followed by starring roles in “Mahogany” and “The Wiz.”

All the while, the music kept coming with hits like “Upside Down,” “I’m Coming Out,” and “Endless Love,” to name a few.

Ross was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Supremes alongside Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard. She is the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honor, a Golden Globe nominee, a 12-time Grammy nominee, and the recipient of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

With a career total 70 hot singles and over a 140 million records sold, she is truly a musical legend.
