Motown legend, Diana Ross celebrated her 75th birthday with a star-studded bash on Tuesday, March 26, 2019.
Guests included Diddy, Berry Gordy, Kris Jenner, and Diana’s son and daughter-in-law Evan Ross, Ashlee Simpson and more.
Video footage shared on Instagram showed her daughter Tracee Ellis Ross urging one of the megastars at the celebrations to sing ‘Happy Birthday.’
Tracee said in a clip published by Khloé Kardashian on her Instagram Story: “Beyoncé? Are you still here? Do you want to sing ‘Happy Birthday?’ Come on down!”
The “Crazy In Love” singer — who was standing next to Diddy — smiled as she took the mic and sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to “Ms. Ross.”
Ahead of Diana’s birthday, the “Chain Reaction” hitmaker was recognized with a special tribute at the Grammy Awards last month.
The former Supremes singer was honored with a video package narrated by the evening’s host, Alicia Keys, documenting her lengthy career before her nine-year-old grandson, Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick, took the stage to pay tribute to his “amazing grand-mommy.”
The youngster said, “She is amazing. Young people like me can look up to her for her independence, confidence, and willingness to be her unique self. She has shown the world that nothing is beyond our reach. So, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my grand-mommy Diana Ross.”
Diana was greeted by loud applause at Los Angeles Staples Centre when she walked out to sing “The Best Years of My Life.”
She then said, “Thank you for being here to celebrate my 75th birthday.”
The “Upside Down” singer then completed her performance by walking through the crowd as she sang ‘Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)’, urging the audience “don’t be lazy” and to get on their feet.
Before she left the stage, she exclaimed, “Happy birthday to me!”
