The Supremes star started off her performance with “The Best Years of My Life” and ended it singing “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand).” But before Diana even began her performance, she was introduced by her adorable 9-year-old grandson Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick.
“She is amazing,” he said about his famous grandmother. “Young people like me can look up to her for her independence, confidence and willingness to be her unique self. She has shown the world that nothing is beyond our reach. So, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my grand-mommy Diana Ross.”
