  • Ross' grandfather John E. Ross, a native of Gloucester County, Virginia, was born to Washington Ross and Virginia Baytop. The relatives of the Ross family of Gloucester County were considered mulatto for many generations, which suggests some European ancestry. Virginia Baytop's mother Francis "Frankey" Baytop was a former slave who had become a midwife after the American Civil War. Ross and her family originally lived at Belmont Road in the North End section of Detroit, near Highland Park, Michigan, where she was neighbors with Smokey Robinson, who first met Ross when she was eight. On Diana's 14th birthday in 1958, the Ross family relocated to the Brewster-Douglass housing projects settling at St. Antoine Street. Unlike what would later be written about in Supremes and Diana Ross biographies, Ross and her family grew up comfortably among the street's working-class residents. By Ross' teenage years, she had aspirations of being a fashion designer, studying design, millinery, pattern-making and seamstress skills while attending Cass Technical High School, a four-year college preparatory magnet school, in downtown Detroit. Ross eventually worked at Hudson's Department Store where, it was claimed in biographies, that she was the first black employee "allowed outside the kitchen". Ross graduated in January 1962, one semester earlier than her classmates.

  • Diana Ross (March 26, 1944- ) is a singer and actress who played Dorothy in the 1978 movie version of The Wiz alongside Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell, and Ted Ross (no relation). Ross first rose to fame as a founding member and lead singer of the Motown group The Supremes during the 60s. After leaving the group in 1970, Diana began her solo career that has included successful ventures into film and Broadway. Ross was soon to claimed to have discovered The Jackson 5 which she didn't. But Ross would introduce the group to several public events including The Hollywood Palace though she added in "Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5", which the Jacksons' father, Joseph Jackson and Berry Gordy didn't appreciate.Diana continues to tour quite rigorously recently completing a 2013 South American tour before embarking on a multi-city U.S. late summer tour launching August 2 in Los Angeles through September 13 in Dallas. Several dates are nearing sellouts. Even though Diana Ross was too old to play Dorothy when Motown obtained film rights to The Wiz, she landed the role after campaigning to the producer. The script had to undergo an almost complete rewrite to accommodate her. In the movie The Wiz, Dorothy is a kindergarten teacher who's in her 20's whos very shy and doesnt have any friends, all except for her dog Toto. She's living with her aunt and uncle because she's not ready to live alone. But after leaving Oz she has now changed. Unfortunately for Ross, movie critics of the '70s almost universally agreed that her performance failed to capture the youthful spunk of the original Dorothy. While working on the movie, Ross also recorded a soundtrack titled Diana Ross Sings Songs From The Wiz, in which she sang 15 songs from the musical all by herself. However, when the movie flopped, Motown decided against releasing this record. It remained unavailable to the public until November 2015, when Motown released it online to promote NBC's The Wiz Live! Saturday Night Live cast member Sasheer Zamata has interestingly both impersonated Diana Ross, and played Dorothy - but not in the same sketch.

FIFA's hand was forced after they announced that the tournament needed to take place in North or South America and every other nation was either too poor or corrupt to step up. There was precious little enthusiasm for the football side of the competition, but the opening ceremony was planned meticulously with the intention of giving a flavour of American razzmatazz and dwarfing Italy's 1990 extravaganza which saw a sweaty man on a moped leer at several women in the crowd while a group of African immigrants tried to sell knock-off handbags. At the climax of the evening, a warbling Ross was supposed to score a penalty kick, causing the goal to collapse. However, the occasion seemed to get to the soul sensation and she dragged her kick wide. A devastated Ross left the pitch in tears being consoled by Italian star Roberto Baggio, who had coached her in the build-up to the game on how to take the perfect penalty. Ross has never taken a spot kick since.
