Thanks for the link, "DIANA ROSS". This time reports are in praises again for you and not being booed anymore like in Jamaica. Very good, because "not over you yet and take you higher". Be sober and may God be with you always!!!

When I learned that Diana Ross was coming to town at the McCallum gala to perform, at first I hesitated to purchase a ticket based on all the bad press she has gotten over all the years. I last saw Diana in New York at the Waldorf Astoria in the Parisian Room about 38 years ago. The last week before her show I was online watching her tickets quickly sell out, so that motivated me to just do and go see her. Not only did I love every moment of show, but the entire audience reaction seemed to be the same. Folks young and old, dancing in their seats, people yelling they love her and several standing ovations. She sang spot on, hit all the notes, even sounding like she did 35 years ago. Couldn't have looked more fabulous I might add. God what a figure! Her entire show was professional from start to finish...great band, great lighting and two fabulous back up singers. At the end, when Diana walked off the stage, the audience wouldn't leave and kept calling her back even though the curtain went down. Diana was nice enough to come out again and do another number for us. Then she left the stage and again everyone called her back and AGAIN she came out...she started to sing, but whoever was controlling the curtain, dropped it down in front of her during her song so she finally ended the show and said Goodnight. I'm so glad at age 55, I decided to see her live again. She brought back such fun memories of my life and the concert was a very special memorable night for me. Thank you Diana for coming to Palm Desert California and for giving it your all for your fans. I just ordered two of your CD's from Amazon because I loved your show so much.
