aited memoir reveals the heart and soul of the most private of the megatalents -- upon the occasion of her thirtieth year as a show business great.
If any one performer defines the word "Superstar," it's Diana Ross -- a pop music legend and cultural icon who has been at the top of her profession for three fabulous decades. Secrets of a Sparrow, her inspirational and intimate memoir which takes its title from a favorite spiritual her mother sang to her, focuses on just that: the pain and pleasure of getting to number one and staying there, along with the lessons learned and the lessons taught. Here are Diana Ross' onstage electricity and allure transposed to the spoken word. Whether recounting triumphs or setbacks, togetherness or solitude, Diana is never less than open. These are the thoughtful and lyrically composed reminiscences of one of the most accomplished women of our time, a woman who is a role model in so many ways. Always true to herself, Ross is the ultimate entertain
Work hard, take care of your own, and love as much as possible. These are the lessons Diana Ross passes along as she reads an abridgment of her sentimental autobiography. No doubt a publicity devise for the entertainer, who is approaching fifty, the program is still excellent. Ross's angelic voice is all crystal and velvet as she speaks of family, friends and love. The program begins and ends with innocuous music. Soft reverberation in the introduction and conclusion further rhapsodizes the listener. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
