At the 2019 Grammy Awards, songstress Diana Ross wished herself a 75th birthday like few can - singing away, surrounded by her family members, and to an audience that gladly sang along.

Diana also walked through the audience during her rendition of "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" and, in an impromptu moment, sang along with Will Smith's son Jaden.

"She is wonderful", he told the audience about Ross.

Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick made his television debut during his aunt Tracee Ellis Ross's stint as host of the American Music Awards back in 2017.

"She is fantastic", Raif-Henok said about his grandmother.

"Together we have no limits".

As hard as this may be to believe, Ross has only taken home one Grammy in her decades-long career - the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award.

In what was perhaps one of the most inspirational and jovial performances of the night, Ross celebrated music and urged the crowd to hold their arms up in the air to help shift around the energy in the room for her. She had previously been nominated 12 times for hits like "Baby Love", "Stop in the Name of Love", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Ease on Down the Road" and "Endless Love", some of which came during her time with the Supremes.

Raif-Henok went on to thank Alicia Keys for the kind words that she said about Diana Ross.
