Legendary songstress Diana Ross brings her catalog of memorable hits to Charleston for a special performance at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Clay Center.
Ross first rose to fame as a founding member and lead singer of the all-female Motown group The Supremes. The group charted several No. 1 songs including, "Where Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love," "Stop! In the Name of Love," "You Can't Hurry Love," " I Hear a Symphony," "Come See About Me" and "Back in My Arms Again." Their album "The Supremes A' Go-Go" was the first album by an all-female group to reach number one on the Billboard 200.
Ross began her solo career in 1970 and saw international success, releasing a string of timeless classics such as "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." She has sold more than 100 million records worldwide during her time with the Supremes and as a solo artist. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with fellow Supremes Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson.
Some seats are still available. Tickets are $55, $69, $89 and $115. For more information, call 304-561-3570 or visit www.theclaycenter.org.
