Diana Ross Celebrates 40 years of Fabulousness in a flamboyant sea of blue  at SSpecial Anniversary Concert

By  Debbie Emery

She was the Star of the show in every  way.

Diana Ross blew away the audience at the  Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night as she celebrated her 40 year career in a  special anniversary concert.

The 69-year-old singer made a dramatic  entrance onto the stage wrapped up in waves of taffeta that sparkled with  bedazzled silver stones.

The Motown star soon dropped the flamboyant  fashion accessory to reveal an equally as fabulous sequined dress covered in  bright flowers.

As she raised her arms in the air to greet  her excited fans, the Ain't No Mountain High Enough singer revealed the  billowing sleeves of her glittering ensemble.

With rosy blushed cheeks, bright pink lips  and heavy-lidded dark eyes, Diana looked every inch the diva that she has been  known to be for the past four decades.

At one point, the multi-talented musician  belted out a show-stopping performance of I'm Coming Out, with her black-suited  back-up band playing trombones behind her.

Ross began her historical career in 1959 as a  founding member of Motown band The Supremes, who had huge hits such as Where Did  Our Love Go.

After suffering from anorexia and getting so  thin that she even collapsed on stage during one show, Ross left the band and  embarked on a solo career in 1970.

It was while performing on her own that Diana  really set the music world on fire, with her 1981 album Why Do Fools Fall In  Love selling over a million copies and launching the hit single Mirror  Mirror.

In 2010, she hit the road again for the first  time in three years for the More Today Than Yesterday: The Greatest Hits Tour,  which she dedicated to her good friend, Michael Jackson. Despite her decades of success, Diana  received her first ever Gr...

On Saturday, she was joined on stage by her  actress daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, 40, who hosted the sell-out show.  

While her daughter was by her side at the  Hollywood Bowl, it is Diana's son, Evan Ross, who has been making headlines  recently since he began dating Ashlee  Simpson last month.

Evan, 24, is the son of Ross' second husband,  Norwegian billionaire shipping magnate, Arne Naess Jr., and he will soon be seen  in the much anticipated Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story.

The aspiring actor will appear in the biopic  as music producer Dallas Austin, who won two Grammys for co-producing the  popular girl group's CrazySexyCool and FanMail albums and had a son with lead  singer Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas in 1997.

MAA NEWS - One of the world’s greatest grooming coaches has died, Dr. Maxine (Blair) Powell passed at the age of 98 in Southfield, Michigan. She was the head of what was publicly known as Motown’s Charm School, and taught virtually all of the popular Motown celebrities how to conduct themselves properly in society. She died of natural causes on Monday at the age of 98.
“I am not an etiquette teacher,” said Maxine to Billy Wilson of the Motown Alumni Association. “I am a personal finishing & grooming coach… I don’t teach people how to use a fork and spoon.” Powell was a native Chicagoan; when asked why she did come to Detroit she said, “Detroit was the happening city back in the early years.” She opened a school in Detroit the ‘Maxine Powell Finishing and Modeling School in the 50’s. She became friends of the Gordy’s and hired the Gordy’s printing company to print her fliers & brochures for her Vegas Styled fashion shows. Members of the Gordy family also went to her finishing school.  Gordy courted Powell to analyze his artist, and what started as a friend helping a friend, Powell got caught up in the Motown magic. She closed her finishing school and joined as one of Motown founding members of the Artist Development Department in 1964. “We use to go to her classes and laugh at her ways of teaching us,” said one of the Motown stars. “The girls were rough under the collar,” said Powell. “I wanted those kids to be able to present themselves in front of King and Queens,” Powell went on to say.   I loved Maxine, said Billy Wilson; “we were very good friends, Powell was very sharp and remembered everything up until the day of her death,” said Wilson. She was the assistant/ public relations for Martha Reeves during her tenure at Detroit’s City Council. Powell also worked at Wayne County Community College in Detroit. She worked for Motown for 5 years (1964 to 1969) during the heydays years of Motown.

Goodbye Maxine Powell: Queen of Motown Class~

Maxine Powell, the finishing-school instructor who infused Motown’s young stars with elegance and poise, died Monday morning at Providence Hospital in Southfield Michigan. She was 98.

 Powell was “peacefully surrounded by Motown family and close friends,” according to a Motown Museum spokeswoman.

Maxine Powell (May 30, 1915 – October 14, 2013) was an American etiquette instructor and talent agent. She taught grooming, poise, and social graces to many recording artists at Motown in the 1960s. It was her grooming that added a touch of class to the Motown experience~
