It's Presidents' Day, so of course we're thinking about that moment when President Obama gave Diana Ross the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor.

A truly well-deserved honor! The multi-talented Diana, born in 1944 in Detroit, rose to fame as the lead vocal singer for The Supremes. She went on to have a ground-breaking solo career in music, television, film, and stage, becoming the "female entertainer of the century" in 1976! Diana made a total of 70 hit singles during her illustrious career 👏🏿

​Diana received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012, and in 2016 received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama (who was clearly geeking out - and who can blame him!)

Thank you, Diana, for all that you have done and continue to do ✊🏿
