Berry Gordy's Lady Sings the Blues - Diana Ross, Michel Legrand & Gil Askey



AMG.com
Her biggest album as a solo act, Diana Ross forever ended any association with the Supremes after this film. She not only got an Oscar nomination and more roles, she really did capture the spirit and flavor, if not the sound and timbre, of Billie Holiday's music; her performance was the film's only saving grace.
