Diana Ross Gets Serenaded By Son, Evan, On Stage & The Crowd Goes Wild
If there’s one thing we love seeing, here at I Love Old School Music, it’s watching our favorite Old School icons thriving and doing what they love best- performing on stage in all their iconic glory. That was the case the other night, for ‘the boss’ Ms. Ross. In case y’all haven’t heard, at 74 years young, Diana Ross is still cuttin’ up on stage and selling out major venues.
She’s in tip top shape, therefore, the brutal beatdown of being on the road several times a year in her 70’s, doesn’t seem to be taking a toll on her at all. In fact, it seems to give her life. Speaking of giving life and such, one of the five children Diana birthed life into, showed up to support her the other day at her concert and touched the hearts of many.
The Touching Serenade Video
Her youngest child, 30 year old actor and artist, Evan Ross, shared an Instagram video clip (below) of his Mother calling him up on stage in the middle of her set, as the band stopped playing, and the audience looked on in anticipation. During the clip, Diana was in full ‘proud Mommy mode’ as she smiled from ear to ear, gesturing for Evan to start singing…a capella might I add, so we know it’s real.
Without further hesitation, Evan shocked Diana’s fans, because most of them never knew he’d inherited his Mom’s singing skills. But lo and behold, he has…just like his big sisters: actress, Tracee Ellis Ross (yep, Tracee can hold a note) and singer, Rhonda Ross. The jury’s still out on whether, or not, his other two Ross siblings- sister, Chudney Ross, and brother, Ross Naess- can actually hold a note, because as far as we know, they’ve never sang publicly.
At any rate, check out Evan Ross serenading his Diana in this touching tribute to the soul icon:
They Were In A Music Video Together Too!
Seeing Evan Ross sing to his Moms in the above video, brought us back to that time in 2015, when he released his debut album and had Diana (along with his wife, Ashlee) in the music video. Watching Diana in it, was the coolest thing ever. And again, even in the video, she was beaming with pride as she stood in awe of the man her youngest baby, Evan, has become nowadays. Watch it below…
That Time Diana & Son Partied At Gay Cub Together
And of course we can’t talk about Diana and her son, without throwing back to the beginning of this year (January 2018), when Ms. Ross celebrated the release of her remixed single, “Remix Of ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” at the popular gay nightclub, The Abbey, in Hollywood, CA.. Evan accompanied his Moms to the club and the club-goers were beyond surprised to see her stroll up in there and get her dance on, like it was 1978 and she was at Studio 54.
That’s right ILOSM family…when it comes to Diana Ross, age ain’t nothing but a number!
