Stop! In the Name of Ross

A living legend will be at WinStar World Casino this weekend and we don’t mean that second cousin of yours who can belt out “Jingle Bells” on a spoon and turkey bone. 

No, we mean a bona fide superstar: Diana Ross, the Queen of Motown herself, who takes the stage of the Global Event Center at 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23.

As one-third of the Supremes in the 1960s, Ross contributed a host of songs -- including “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” “Baby Love,” “I Hear a Symphony” and “You Can’t Hurry Love” -- that have become part of our pop cultural consciousness.

The Supremes disbanded at the close of the Sixties, but it hardly slowed down Ross. Over the next two decades, her solo hits included “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand),” “Do You Know Where You’re Going to (Theme from ‘Mahogany’),” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “Touch Me in the Morning,” “Love Hangover,” “I’m Coming Out” and “Upside Down.”

In the midst of such jaw-dropping chart success, she also found time to become a movie star, appearing in 1972’s Lady Sings the Blues -- for which she earned an Oscar nomination portraying the ill-fated jazz vocalist Billie Holiday -- and 1978’s The Wiz. That latter film also featured Ross’ longtime friend Michael Jackson, who may or may not have had plastic surgery to resemble Ross. But that’s a different story.

So to borrow rhetorically from one of her classic songs – Do you know where you’re going to on Sept. 23rd?

Hint: She’s among the most successful female recording artists of all time.
