Born in Detroit, Michigan, Diana Ross originally intended to pursue a career in fashion design, and attended Cass Technical High School, a college preparatory magnet school, where she studied design and millinery. At age 15, she was introduced to Milton Jenkins, who added her to an already established girl doo-wop group called the Primes. Though the group tried to get the attention of Berry Gordy at Motown, he considered them too young. They were persistent, however. After a line-up and name change, The Supremes were born. The group would go on to release 10 Top Ten singles in the US and abroad, becoming the most popular group on the Motown label in the 60s. Diana Ross would eventually become the most famous member of the trio, leading to tension among the members, and additional line-up changes. She launched a solo career in 1968, and went on to garner 27 Top 40 hits, 12 Top 10 hits, a Golden Globe, a Tony Award, seven American Music Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, and an Oscar nomination.
