For nearly 55 years, Diana Ross has been bringing down the house in all sorts of venues, from the Motown sound stage to Central Park and everywhere else in between. At the last night of her most recent Las Vegas run, she invited her daughter, Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross, to join her in singing "Lady Sings the Blues."
The result: a super-touching mother-daughter moment that will make you want to hug the little girl(s) in your life. At first, Tracee Ross is so nervous you think she'll just run off stage. But then she starts singing and wows the audience--even if her rendition only lasts a minute.
The younger Ross had this to say about appearing onstage with the woman who is the ORIGINAL diva (sorry Beyonce!). Posting on Facebook, she wrote: "There’s something about singing….. It’s no joke trying to do that as the child of DIANA ROSS, let alone while standing by her side on stage."
She goes on to praise her mom's parenting wisdom: "All my life I have witnessed her as Diana Ross the icon and Diana Ross the mother, and I have experienced her seamlessly bridge this incredible dichotomy with grace and ease. She has always carved out space for her children. I have always known I was the priority."
Like Tracee Ross, you'll tear up at the hug the two share at the end of their duet.
