“I envisioned a dream and that’s what I created over those two days in Central Park. I picked a goal, and then imagined all the details,” Ms. Ross states. “I believe imagination is magical, that we can think of something and bring it into being.”
Directed by award-winning producer and director Steve Binder, Diana Ross: Live in Central Park was filmed over the course of two days when nearly 1.2 million people united on the Great Lawn of Central Park to experience a moment that defined a generation, bringing together music fans to experience one of the greatest artists of all time. The Fathom Events special is executive produced by Ms. Ross and produced by music/media producer Spencer Proffer of Meteor 17.
“We are thrilled to kick off this year-long celebration of an icon like Diana Ross in conjunction with her 75th birthday with this special screening event in movie theaters worldwide,” states Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “As we are always looking to bring the best-in-class experiences to our viewers, we are excited to bring the legacy of Diana Ross to fans and music lovers everywhere.”
