POP | Diana Ross 

Diana Ross is probably one of the top two or three greatest artists in Motown history. As a member of the Supremes, Ross and her group blended pop with R&B so well that nowadays both genres feel out of place without one another. When Ross left the Supremes for a solo career she continued her string of number one hits ("Ain't No Mountain High Enough"), reinvented herself as a film actress ("Lady Sings The Blues"), and as a disco diva ("Love Hangover"). Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Supremes, Ross has influenced everyone from the obvious (Beyoncé) to less obvious (Madonna) to the subliminal (Phil Collins). Remember his "You Can't Hurry Love" cover?

Diana Ross performs Wednesday, June 18, at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. 8 p.m. $56-$96.
