    Broadway World Review: NSO Pops/Diana Ross at the Kennedy Center

    There are certain artists whose names immediately fall in the "legend" category and Diana Ross is one of them. Though no proof is needed, she is even a Kennedy Center Honoree, Grammy Award Winner, Tony Award Winner, and Oscar and Golden Globe Nominee. Her career spans over 50 years and dates back to the Motown era, as one of the most famous acts during that time. I was watching a Motown special a couple of weeks ago and Motown founder, Berry Gordy commented that "Diana Ross and The Supremes" were the "number one act" for Motown during its success period. Diana Ross is back in 2020 and dazzling more than ever before at seventy-five years old lighting up the Kennedy Center Stage with grace and incredible vocals.

    Strike up the "orchestra" because Ross is coupled with the amazing National Symphony Orchestra on the Kennedy Center's Concert Hall Stage. "I'm Coming Out!" The first lyrics heard from off-stage and no sooner does the legend herself appear onstage in a bright, big, and bold persimmon dress. The crowd goes wild as they are in the presence of "the" Diana Ross herself. Did I mention that the entirety of the Concert Hall was completely packed to its brim?

    Miss Ross seems to be enjoying herself as much as the crowd! Diana Ross loves to entertain. Was there a Q and A at the show?

    What question would you ask Ms. Ross?

    I would ask her if she ever wanted to do a tribute album to Michael Masser and include some songs he wrote for other singers.

    "To Love Again" : Has Ms. Ross ever sung this song in concert?

    She sang it during some 1978 shows, while sitting in an enormous shoe.

    It might have only taken place during her Universal Ampitheatre shows that year. I don't know if it happened at Radio City. I know it didn't occur when I saw her TOUR'79.

    It must have been for only a brief time. I saw her many times from the late 70's onwards,but never saw her perform this beautiful song. Thank you for your response.
