About Rockphiles

During the 1960's, the Supremes became one of the first African American groups to gain popularity with both black and white audiences. Diana Ross sang with the Supremes from 1959 until she left the group in 1969 for a solo career as a singer and motion-picture actress. Ross was born in Detroit and began singing with three other girls in high school in a group called the Primettes who, after signing with Berry Gordy's Tamla Records in 1961, changed their name to the Supremes. The Supremes were Ross, Mary Wilson, and Florence Ballard. They had their first hit with "Your Heart Belongs to Me" (1962). From 1964 to 1967, the Supremes had 10 worldwide hit songs, including "Where Did Our Love Go?," "Baby Love," "Come See About Me," "Stop! In the Name of Love," and "You Keep Me Hangin' On." Diana Ross continues with a successful singing and acting career, but lately has been experiencing some personal downswings, including a recent conviction for DUI.
