With an incredible career that has spanned more than 50 years, the incomparable Diana Ross will be honored at the American Music Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming 2017 ceremony.

“I have endless memories of all the years that I have appeared on the American Music Awards,” Ross says via press release. “It started with Dick Clark and The Caravan of Stars and American Bandstand. It was Dick Clark who said ‘Music is the soundtrack of our lives.’ So true. I am so excited to be receiving this honorable award.”

The award is “only given to artists who have made truly exceptional contributions to the music industry,” according to the press release. Ross has certainly done just that, recording some of the most recognizable hits of the past five decades.

Ross also received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. She’s also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and won a Golden Globe for her acting performance in the classic film Lady Sings the Blues where Ross portrayed the role of Billie Holiday.

Ross, so far, has won seven AMA awards in total.

The show will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 19th at 8PM.
