Today in Comics History, March 26: Happy birthday, Diana Ross!

Born on this day: actress, singer, and iconic Motown diva (in the best sense of the word), Diana Ross! C'mon, sing along with her huge number of hits, both with the Supremes and solo: "Where Did Our Love Go," "Baby Love," "Come See About Me," "Stop! In the Name of Love,", "Love Child," "Touch Me in the Morning," "Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)," "Love Hangover," "Upside Down," "Endless Love," "I'm Coming Out," "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," and countless more! (Well, I suppose you couldcount 'em, but there's a whole heckuva lot of 'em.) Not to mention her silver screen appearances in films Lady Sings the Blues, Mahogany, and The Wiz! Miss Ross certainly has kept busy, so today on her birthday she's entitled to sit back and put her feet up, and only record five or six songs.
