With the last name Jones, there’s no question that success is literally right around the corner, at least that’s true in Hollywood. Quincy Jones is a multi-platinum record-winning producer, and has everything to show for it—including his family. While it may seem like a magic trick, as the Chicago-born legend spent much of his career traveling from country to country, he still made time to play father every now and then to his seven children—Jolie, Martina, Quincy III (QDIII), Kadida, Rashida, Rachel and Kenya. 


All seven children didn’t walk behind their father into the walls of a recording studio, but they certainly found their way in and around Tinseltown. From super producer to super model, the Jones’ kids have pretty much done it all. And with their credits continually showing up on scores, albums, print ads and films, they’re not planning on stopping anytime soon. Leave it to this family, and they’ll be walking in space!

Diana Ross may have initiated the family name, but her children have surely continued its legacy. While the Motown best-selling artist entered the music world in the 1960’s with the Supremes—and later parted ways to embark on her solo career—her five children, Ross, Rhonda, Tracee, Chudney and Evan, have found multiple ways to continue the legend their mother started more than 50 years ago through the realms of television, film, fashion, education and more. 


From Chudney and Rhonda’s top-tier collegiate education and choice careers to match to Evan and Tracee’s life on the big screen and Ross’s adventurous lifestyle celebrated through photography, the Ross coterie has found a way to expand their name’s reach and become a multi-arena conglomerate. When you’re a Ross, you know there ain’t no mountain high enough; now that’s a family business motto to live by.

Family Business: Diana Ross & Her Familial Supremes

In the second installment of our Family Business series, we take a look at the Ross family, headed by Diana.

With Beyoncé at the forefront, the Knowles family has found their way to the top of entertainment’s food chain. As the pop diva has found herself traveling around the world to perform sell-out shows, her father, Matthew Knowles, was helping make all that happen as her manager until 2011. While those two were on the the road, Bey’s mother, Tina, didn’t just sit home alone, she got to the drawing board and designed clothing for her House of Dereon and Miss Tina by Tina Knowles fashion lines. And you can’t forget about Solange! From the bigscreen to the runway, the girl who used to be known as Beyoncé’s little sister is now turning out parties in the U.S. and across the pond as she rocks the 1s and 2s and looked up to as a fashion know-all.


So if you ever thought a family business couldn’t exist, take a note or two from the Knowles’ clan. Now that’s love on top!
