We had the delight of seeing Diana Ross in concert on hubby’s last evening off. I began singing her songs to him a few days prior to the show.
Ain’t NO Mountain High Enough! So, it’s no wonder he was a bit concerned about going and whether or not he would know the music. 😉
When Diana Ross walked onto the stage, she was a demanding presence. Her charisma, charm and beauty were spell-binding. When this Lady Sings the Blues, everyone listens. You suddenly recall each and every song at the intro music. And for a short time, you are at a huge party of singing and dancing, for folks over the age of forty.
Diana Ross is still an amazing performer at almost sixty-nine years old. She had fun, so everyone else had fun! We could all learn a lesson from that. 😉 HaPPy almost Birthday, Diana Ross!
(Do you have a favorite Diana Ross song? )
We were SO lucky to see her….a gift from a friend!
She has endured over the decades.
Yes she has….a beautiful woman.
How fun! One of my favorites goes back to her days with the Supremes…”Someday, We’ll Be Together.” I can hear it now…think I had just broken up with my boyfriend and it gave me hope:) Yes, we did make it back together and still are:)
Jeannette ~ that is an “awwwwwww” statement! Sweet memories ♥
My husband and I saw her in Palm Springs last year (or the year before?). She gave a great show and it was amazing at her age, but her voice wasn’t so hot. I wonder if she was sick at the time since others have said that she’s wonderful.
Hmmm? Her voice was terrific and the wardrobe changes fantastic.
Yeah, wardrobe, her professionalism, her backup singers and musicians, all great. Her voice not so much. So maybe she was sick after all.
As much as she performs….there have to be “those” days. ;(
She is still one damn good singer… always was and I think always will be…
Yes, sir…..I agree ~
I’ll bet that was a LOT of fun!
What a wonderful night out for you both! Just because I like the song so much, her version of Come in From the Rain is really nice.
😉 Hope you are having a good “writing” week, Maddie!
Don’t you love that even though you can’t remember what you had for breakfast, you instantly sing every word of every song in the concert???
One of the many mysteries of life! 😉
What a great experience to have. She’s amazing. I was just reading today that she has never won a Grammy – odd.
This was just a big ol’ party and a lot of fun. No Grammy? Wow….now that’s wrong.
I know – it’s almost criminal.
Wow… how many costume changes did that woman go through? LOL 😛
Looks like you had lotta fun!!
Five in 1.5 hrs! (or six) lol!
What a great concert! I certainly would have enjoyed it! 🙂
Well I wish you’d have been there to sing with us! 😉
I grew up in Detroit, and I grew up with Motown music. I still love it.
So much to love!
69? There’s hope for the rest of us 🙂
I know….she is beautiful and has so much joy and energy! 🙂
STOP in Name of Love…before you break my heart. Think it o-o-o-o-ver…
Too late. Stuck in my head now. =) Nikki
Well thanks! Now it’s stuck in mine too!! All. Day. Long! haha ♥
