She 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 Primettes. Though the group tried to get the attention of Berry Gordy at Motown, he considered them too young. But they were persistent. 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. The Diana Ross version of The Supremes had 18 Top 10 singles in the US. 12 of those singles hit #1. The Supremes had 8 top ten singles in the UK, one of which was a #1. 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 1970 which was ultimately very successful. To date, Diana has won a Golden Globe, a Tony Award, eight American Music Awards, a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, and has been nominated for an Oscar. She was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2016 by President Barack Obama.
