Diana is one of the most successful recording artists and entertainers of all time. From her landmark solo career to the early days as the leader of The Supremes, the superstar singer has helped shape the sound of popular music.
Making the announcement today, Rita Broe, managing director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said: “We are delighted and honoured to be welcoming Diana Ross to Eden this summer. Diana has had a magnificent career creating the most wonderful music and we are sure her appearance at Eden will be a magical, never-to-be-forgotten night.”
Diana has an astounding career total of 70 hits singles, including Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, I’m Coming Out, Stop! In The Name of Love, Upside Down, I’m Still Waiting and Chain Reaction.
Her portrayal of Billie Holiday in the classic film Lady Sings the Blues resulted in an Oscar nomination and a trophy at the The Golden Globe Awards.
Diana’s international achievements were acknowledged by the prestigious Kennedy Center Honours in Washington DC (2007), celebrating her lustrous career of excellence in music, film, television and theatre, as well as her cultural influences, humanitarian work and her contributions to American culture.
The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences celebrated her remarkable career with its highest honour, The GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. In 2016, Diana received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the most prestigious civilian award given to a U.S. citizen.
