This week marked an annual occurrence of epic proportions. We celebrated the birth of not one but four dynamic divas that have all made a major impact on pop culture during Women’s History Month.

Kicking off the week on Sunday, Chaka Khan (March 23), Aretha Franklin (March 25), Diana Ross (March 26), and Mariah Carey (March 27) all celebrated their birthdays.
