Diana Ross & The Supremes – The Artists

The Supremes was an American girl group and a premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s. Founded as the Primettes in Detroit, Michigan, in 1959, the Supremes were the most commercially successful of Motown’s acts and the most successful American vocal band, with 12 number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Most of these hits were written and produced by Motown’s main songwriting and production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland. It is said that their breakthrough made it possible for future African-American R&B and soul musicians to find mainstream success. The original members were Florence Ballard (1943 – 1976) , Mary Wilson (1944 -2021) , Diana Ross (1944) , and Betty McGlown (1944 – 2008). They were lead by Diana Ross.

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”.

Stop! in The Name of Love – The Song

“Stop! in The Name of Love” is a  1965 song recorded by the Supremes for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown’s main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland, “Stop! In the Name of Love” was a popular hit in both the UK and the US. The song was written by Eddie Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Brian Holland. Dozier said that he got the idea after he got cheated on by his girlfriend. In the heat of the argument, he said, “Baby, please stop. In the name of love- before you break my heart.”. The Supremes’ choreography for this song involved one hand on the hip and the other outstretched in a “stop” gesture. The record was released credited to Just the Supremes and as Diana Ross & the Supremes.

The Stop Gesture – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a human hand, palm upwards in a stop gesture.  Gestures are a form of nonverbal communication in which visible bodily actions are used to communicate important messages, either in place of speech or together and in parallel with spoken words. Gestures include movement of the hands, face, or other parts of the body. Physical non-verbal communication such as purely expressive displays, proxemics, or displays of joint attention differ from gestures, which communicate specific messages. Gestures are culture-specific and may convey very different meanings in different social or cultural settings.
