Diana Ross – The Artist
Diana Ross (born March 26, 1944) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Ross rose to fame as the lead singer of the vocal group the Supremes, which, during the 1960s, became Motown’s most successful act, and are the best charting girl group in US history, as well as one of the world’s best-selling girl groups of all time. Following her departure from the Supremes in 1970, Diana Ross released her eponymous debut solo album that same year, which contained the Top 20 Pop hit “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” and the number-one Pop hit “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”.
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – The Song
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough is an R&B/soul rock song written by Nickolas Ashford & Valerie Simpson in 1966 for the Tamla label, a division of Motown. The composition was first successful as a 1967 hit single recorded by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, becoming a hit again in 1970 when recorded by former Supremes front woman Diana Ross. The song became Ross’ first solo number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was nominated for a Grammy Award. In spring 1970, after the Top 20 success of her first solo single, “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)”, Ashford and Simpson had Ross re-record “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. Initially, Ross was apprehensive, but was convinced to make the recording. The remake was similar to gospel with elements of classical music strings (provided by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra), spoken word passages from Ross, with The Andantes, Jimmy Beavers, Jo Armstead, Ashford & Simpson and Brenda Evans and Billie Calvin of The Undisputed Truth as backing singers, giving the song a soul and gospel vocal element. The song “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” is a philosophy of determination and perseverance. Or put another way, no barrier or obstacle will stand in one’s way in reaching his/her objective
