Happy Birthday to Diana Ross, who turns 76 today (March 26th)!!! Back in June, Ross revealed she might be tapping top pop producer Mark Ronson to head up her next album.
During the Q&A portion of her TD Toronto Jazz Festival concert, the former-Supreme told the crowd: “I'm getting ready to go in the studio and do another album and I want to do songs from where I am at, at this point in time in my life because I feel so incredibly grateful and appreciative of you. . . I don't want to sing the blues. I want to sing songs that really speak to. . . my life, and optimism, and positive (sic). So I met with this really incredible producer. His name is Mark Ronson. And he is such a doll. He's so humble. I said, 'How do you feel after winning an Academy Award?' And he went, 'Next.' He's ready to go to work. He's lovely, lovely.” So far, there's been no further word on Ross' next studio set.
In 2019, in celebration of Ross' 75th birthday, the documentary Diana Ross: Her Life, Love And Legacy hit the big screen. The concert doc featured “a remastered version of Ross’ historic 1983 Central Park concert with never-before-seen footage and commentary from the Ross family, including sons Evan Ross and Ross Naess, daughters Rhonda Ross Kendrick, Chudney Ross, and Tracee Ellis Ross.”
