With a career spanning over four decades, Diana Ross is one of the most beloved figures in pop music history, thanks largely to her work with the Supremes, who scored 12 No. 1 hits in their day. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who hasn't heard their signature song, "Stop! In the Name of Love," which became one of the high watermarks of the girl group era as Diana and the girls sang their way to worldwide domination in the mid-'60s. After leaving the Supremes for a solo career in 1969, Ross continued to garner accolades for her music, like the epic single favored by chick-flick soundtracks, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," which always signals that a troubled relationship will soon be healed. Through the '70s and into the '90s, Ross also explored the realm of acting, even earning an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in Lady Sings the Blues. If you're wondering if she still has "it"--personally, we'd never bet against a diva--you'll find your answer when the legend takes the stage 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Majestic Theatre, 1925 Elm St. Tickets are $75 to $135 plus exorbitant Ticketmaster fees.
