In 2022, the Supremes were honored a decade after Diana Ross received a lifetime achievement award in 2012. Together with Ross, the group was one of Motown’s colossal and most consistent hitmakers, swooping 12 Number One hits from 1964 to 1969.

Last year, the singer embarked on her Music Legacy Tour in June with stops in San Diego, Santa Barbara Reno, Atlantic City, and more. In May 2022, Ross and Tame Impala released the Jack Antonoff-produced track “Turn Up the Sunshine” as the lead single to Antonoff’s soundtrack to Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Richie will set off on the second-leg of his Sing A Song All Night Long tour with Earth, Wind & Fire in May. He’ll be visiting Knoxville, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Columbus, and more, before wrapping up on June 16 in Pittsburgh. At this year’s Grammys, Richie was among the star-studded list of presenters including Christina Aguilera, Maluma, Lenny Kravitz, Mark Ronson, Meryl Streep, and Oprah Winfrey.
