She'll be celebrating all year with a new show that continues this month at Wynn Las Vegas through February 23, 2019. "I'm nearly 4-foot-9!" "She has shown the whole world that nothing is beyond our reach", he said with all the confidence in the world. As she then walked through the crowd, she asked audience members to sing into her mic, with Will Smith's son Jaden Smith among those who obliged. "There's only success ahead, and you can lead the way". After her family-friendly introduction, Ross took the stage wearing a flowing bright red chiffon.

Ross has been nominated for 12 Grammys, but has never won except for a lifetime achievement award in 2012. "Learn, dream, unlock new doors, all is possible, all is possible with music and with you".

Diana concluded her performance by yelling, "Happy Birthday to Me!" Also there was Motown creator Berry Gordy, 89, the father of Diana's oldest child, Rhonda.
