#Flashback to being on the red carpet for the #Grammy 's Special Merit Awards with Diana Ross when she finally got a #Grammy . It's incredible to know that she was never awarded a Grammy in so many decades not even for all her work with The #Supremes . She is an icon for so many generations and had to wait to get the lifetime achievement award to finally receive her Grammy. I had gotten a chance to meet her entire family and spend time with them. The sad part about this was Whitney Huston was supposed to join us at this very moment to share in this momentus occasion but she never showed up. It was during the awards ceremony that we learned she had passed away in the tub while getting ready to join all of the festivities. We were all at a brunch earlier at the hotel and after several mimosas it was time for everyone to get ready for the awards. Little did anyone know it would be the last time anyone would see Whitney Huston again... #dianaross #whitneyhouston #grammys #flashbackfriday #redcarpet #charmedlife #champagnelife #betancourtpr #historic #thesupremes #motown
You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself. If I have someone who believes in me, I can move mountains. -Diana Ross #thesupremes #motownrecords #blackhistorymonth 🖤

Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, Diana Ross, and Betty McGlown, the original group, are all from the Brewster-Douglass public housing project in Detroit. They formed the Primettes as the sister act to the Primes (with Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks, who went on to form the Temptations). Barbara Martin replaced McGlown in 1960, and the group signed with Motown the following year as the Supremes. Martin left the act in early 1962, and Ross, Ballard, and Wilson carried on as a trio. During the mid-1960s, the Supremes achieved mainstream success with Ross as lead singer and Holland-Dozier-Holland as its songwriting and production team. In 1967, Motown president Berry Gordy renamed the group Diana Ross & the Supremes, and replaced Ballard with Cindy Birdsong. Ross left to pursue a solo career in 1970 and was replaced by Jean Terrell, so the group's name reverted to The Supremes. During the mid-1970s, the lineup changed with Lynda Laurence, Scherrie Payne and Susaye Greene joining the group until, after 18 years, The Supremes disbanded in 1977. #blackhistorymonth #thesupremes #dreamgirls
I was back in the gym again last night and had my trainer with me this time! I trained squats at 3x5x85 (and took a super artistic photo of the weights during one of my breaks). I saw in the video I wasn’t squatting low enough so I have to work on that. Overhead press at 5x5x50 (fun fact, I couldn’t remember how much I had pressed the last time since I didn’t have the app working yet so I took a guess at 65. It wanted me to press 70 this time. That absolutely was NOT happening so Joe said to do 5x5x50 and I did it!) I think this video was the second to last set and I struggled a bit at the beginning, but finished strong! Then was deadlifting which I was a bit nervous about, but I learned my lesson and didn’t back away from the bar until I was ready. Warmed up with 110x2 and working weight was 115x5. Only 10 pounds less than my one rep max last week! . I am in LOVE with the new platforms at the gym! They were just installed yesterday and they’re so much better for lifting (and putting/throwing down) heavy weights. . Oh, and one more fun fact? Joe pressed my squat working weight and my warm up weights for deadlifts. He’s strong.

In #1976 #FlorenceBallard of #TheSupremes died of cardiac arrest, aged 32. Ballard had been one of the original #Supremes until she was forced out of the three-woman group by #Motown founder #BerryGordy and Supreme diva #DianaRoss . 
She left The Supremes in 1967, lost an $8 million lawsuit against #MotownRecords and was living on welfare when she died. Unexplained mysteries still surround her death, as her Family believes she was killed because someone wanted to silence her. #TWIMH#music #history #musichistory #onthisday #thisdayinhistory #70s

Which song sung by #TheSupremes do you think they should included in their live show that wasn’t ?
#thefourtops  and #thesupremes  were the epitome of the glamour end of @motownrecords – huge hit makers, enormously popular yet never quite basking in the critical acclaim of #StevieWonder , #TheTemptations or #MarvinGaye . When #DianaRoss left the Supremes in January 1970, many were ready to write the group off. But her place was ably filled by #JeanTerrell , and the hits continued. As The Supremes, with Ross, had recorded two albums of duets with The Temptations, it was deemed time to recreate the magic with the label’s other leading vocal group, the Four Tops. The pairing was successful – three albums were made in quick succession in 1970 and 1971. The Magnificent 7 was a strong debut in September 1970, and it became a UK Top 10 album in early 1971. Their spirited rendition of River Deep, Mountain High reached the Top 20. If you have ever felt that the Ike and Tina Turner version is tad overcooked, then this is an extremely convincing alternative. Its follow up, The Return of the Magnificent 7, continues the theme of well-produced covers while the final pairing, Dynamite, is the most interesting yet the most schizophrenic. Produced by Frank Wilson and Bobby Taylor, it ups the quotient of contemporary grooves (such as Stephen Stills’ Love the One You’re With), but the schmaltz is ladled on even thicker with versions of the Perry Como hit It’s Impossible and Bread’s If. #themagnificent7 @the_four_tops_fanpage @the__supremes #motownsound #hitsvilleusamotown @the_supremes_fanpage #soundofyoungamerica
The Brothers Johnson were a funk and R&B band consisting of musicians and brothers George ("Lightnin' Licks") and Louis E. Johnson ("Thunder Thumbs"). They achieved their greatest success from the mid-1970s to early 1980s, with three singles topping the R&B charts ("I'll Be Good to You", "Strawberry Letter 23", and "Stomp!"). Stomp became their signature tune and was aided by all star backing vocalists, The Supremes, Merry Clayton and Michael Jackson. Taken from the album” Light Up the Night”, this would would be the final album where they would collaborate with mentor and producer Quincy Jones.

Day 21: An Unknown/Interesting Black Fact Before they were known as The Supremes, the trio of Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson, and Diana Ross were part of a group known as the Primettes. On January 15, 1962, the trio was signed to Berry Gordy’s Motown Records en route to a stellar career and a number of hits. The Primettes were an off-shoot quartet and sister group to The Primes, featuring Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams of The Temptations fame. The quartet consisted of Ballard, Ross, and Wilson, along with Betty McGlowin and Barbara Martin. Ballard chose The Supremes name on her own, and the group was later signed. It has been reported that Ross initially didn’t like the name change as it sounded too masculine. Now a trio with the departure of Martin, the group struggled early on to notch a big hit. However, they were hard-working and added their vocals to hits for Motown legends like Marvin Gaye as background and session singers. Under Gordy’s direction, Ross became the face of the group, which sparked some tension in the trio. Still, huge hits like “Baby Love” and “Stop! In The Name Of Love” quickly turned the group into one of the label’s superstar acts. With success came conflict, chiefly between Ballard, the founder of the group, and Ross. There were also rumors that Gordy took special interest in the group because of personal ties to Ross. (The two finally admitted publicly, years later, that Gordy was the father of Ross’ oldest daughter, Rhonda.) Ballard began struggling with a drinking problem and was fired from the group in 1967. Though she signed a solo deal, she was never successful as a solo artist and eventually became a full-fledged alcoholic. Eventually, though she rebounded and In 1970, Ross embarked on a solo career and Wilson became the group’s lead vocalist. Ballard died in 1976 of cardiac arrest, after having started a successful return to singing. Several iterations of the group existed until 1977 when the group officially disbanded. #proudtobeblack #blackhistorymonth #thesupremes #dianaross #florenceballard #marywilson
Mary Wilson of the Supremes!!! Amazing interview and insight on some of the greatest songs of all time. It was like meeting a Beatle, as the Supremes were one of the only artists that went toe to toe with the Fab Four and accomplished something they didn't: 5 number one hits in a row. . . . . . #TheSupremes #MaryWilson #Professorofrock #historyofmusic #motown #parkcityutah #motownrecords #rocknroll #soulmusic #utahmusic #utahlivemusic #musichistorian

Had fun sketching this up for @oldschoolsketchshow. Have you wondered what it would be like for Diana Ross and the Supremes to try court cases?! #thesupremes #dianaross @dianaross
Second female Justice of the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, brings attention to the implausibilities of achieving pure unconscious bias. It's difficult to take personal perspective out of any situation. Humans are empathetic beings, and experiences in life are a large factor in what defines us. ⠀ ⠀ #RuthBaderGinsburg , #JusticeoftheSupremeCourt , #TheSupremes , #SupremeCourtJustice , #UnconciousBias , #SharonSchweitzer , #AccesstoCulture , #Access2Culture , #AccesstoCulture2019 , #AustinTexas
What a spectacular performance by Diana Ross last night. If you’re in Vegas or anywhere else she is performing, GO SEE HER!
