New Diana Ross documentary gets United Kingdom screening dates

New Diana Ross documentary gets United Kingdom screening dates

Predictably, it was incredible!

"Thank you for being here to celebrate my 75th birthday", she said to large applause. Other family members, including Ross' daughter Tracee Ellis Ross and son Evan Ross, were also in attendance and cheered him and the singer on.

But the audience on Sunday night was then treated to an nearly embarrassingly over-the-top and self-involved celebration of the singer as she sang some of her biggest hits.

Ross was introduced by her adorable 9-year-old grandson, Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick, for the performance, after which she performed two of her most iconic hits, "The Best Years of My Life" and "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)". "I'm nearly 4-foot-9!"

After telling the crowd "don't be lazy" as she prompted everyone to stand, she ended the performance by exclaiming, "Happy birthday to me!".

"We express our pain, power, and progress through music whether we're creating it or just appreciating it", she said. "Learn, dream, unlock new doors".

The singer - a proud mom and grandmother - was joined by her kids and grandchildren who were in the crowd to watch her "Diamond Diana" performance.

The star, as so many people know, came of age in Detroit, Michigan, began singing with friends as a teen, and eventually led the 1960s trio the Supremes, who had such hits as "Come See About Me" and "You Can't Hurry Love".
