Ross has won a Tony Awards and been nominated for an Academy Award and for tons of Grammys. (She's never won a Grammy, though, which is surprising.) She's of course had countless hits, both with the Supremes in the 1960s and as a solo artist since 1970, and she starred in "The Wiz" and "Lady Sings the Blues."
The Van Wezel concert starts at 8 p.m, Wednesday, Sept. 11. Tickets are $30-$115. 941-953-3368 or www.vanwezel.org.
