"I guoss nobody ever really knew her, just as I feel nobody really knows me." Now the public which has known Diana as the brassy, bouncy lead singer of The Su- premes will have to adjust that image.

Like Miss Holliday, Diana It oss was second eld- est of six children raised in a Detroit housing project. She also realized very young that she was a singer, and by 14 was auditioning for jobs, harmoniz- ing along with two girl-friends.
