Yes, its true... the Queen is coming home. Diana Ross is finally coming back home to Detroit to perform.
The problem is the venue might be to small. Detroiters are happy about her presence. The Motown group the Supremes
were amongst the arsinal of super star Motowners to break the color barrier in the music scene. What makes her career
interesting is that she wasn't always the super diva we know and love. The early years of the Supremes were bleak.
When everyone on the Motown Revue scene had hit records out the Supremes were teased for being the "No Hit Supremes",
because the group had no serious hit songs to brag about and their comrades teased them relentlessly. The change in their
career came when Berry Gordy asked the writings team of Holland Dozier Holland to write something for the floundering group.
HDH was the songwriting team of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. The Supremes wanted songs like Martha. Once the team
started writing a pool of songs quickly rose to the top of the charts almost immediately.
