#272 – Rhonda Ross – In Case You Didn’t Know

Rhonda Ross has some very famous parents – the only daughter of legendary singer Diana Ross and Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. Yet, she’s always walked to her own beat – first making a name for herself as an actress – garnering a Daytime Emmy Nomination for her role on the NBC soap opera Another World, and being named one of the “10 Most Fascinating Television Stars” by People Magazine. But, she eventually found herself naturally returning to music.

Rhonda’s style is rooted in jazz, yet also contains elements of funk, soul, even a little rock. She’s just put out a brand new CD called In Case You Didn’t Know, and she’s opening for her mom, Diana, on her current tour. Ross talks about releasing her first studio album, which contains songs written and produced by her. Plus, she discusses an upcoming speaking engagement at the Motown Museum.
