Diana Ross’ Grandson Is Supremely Adorable In Grammys Speech

Diana Ross was first welcomed to the stage by her 9-year-old grandson Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick, who said his "grandmummy" has "shown the world that nothing is beyond her reach".

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. The suited and booted child said, "Did she say "little guy"?" The pop icon performed at the ceremony to celebrate her 75th birthday, which will take place in March. Also in honor of her 75th birthday, the residency concludes on February 23.

She sang "The Best Years of My Life" followed by "Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)" and strode out into an audience at the Staples Center in Los Angeles that included her fellow Motown star Smokey Robinson and Motown founder Berry Gordy.




The singer quite literally got everyone going as she told the crowd "don't be lazy", encouraging everyone to get up on their feet. "Learn, dream, unlock new doors, all is possible, all is possible with music and with you".

Hosted by Alicia Keys, Sunday's Grammys also boasted buzzy performances from the likes of Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Chloe x Halle, Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, Post Malone and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

She talked to the crowd throughout the performance and ended it by twice declaring, "Happy birthday to me!"
