Iconic singer Diana Ross was introduced on Sunday night by none other than her nine-year-old grandson - who adorably paved the way for his "grandmommy, Diana Ross". Before she began singing, she said: "When I was a little girl, I felt the joy of singing".

The movie is a part of Ross' year-long Diamond Diana celebrations to mark her 75th birthday.

"The film, Diana Ross: Her Life, Love, and Legacy, covers her 1983 Central Park concert, considered one of the most important events in music and entertainment history, which was hit halfway through by a storm of epic proportions. She has shown the whole world that nothing is beyond our reach", he said, before adding: "Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my grand mommy Diana Ross!". She exclaimed, "Thank you for being here and celebrating my 75th birthday!" "And you can lead the way", the elated music legend addressed the audience during the show.
