Beyoncé gets emotional as Diana Ross sings her ‘Happy Birthday’ on Renaissance tour
Legendary singer Diana Ross joined Beyoncé on stage at the Renaissance World Tour last night September 4, to wish Queen B a happy birthday.
Beyoncé appeared to get a little choked up as Ross took a moment to help mark the star’s 42nd birthday by standing next to her, holding her hand, and singing ‘Happy Birthday’.
Ross then invited the crowd to join in, to which Beyoncé responded by skipping ecstatically on the spot.
The iconic pair then hugged it out, before Beyoncé seemed to get all teary-eyed as she thanked Ross for “opening doors” for her.“You are so amazing. This is the legendary Diana Ross,” she joyously told the audience at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium.
“There would be no me without you. Thank you so much for all of your sacrifice and your beauty and your grace,” she continued. “Thank you for opening doors for me.
The duo continued to stand on stage hand in hand, looking into each other’s eyes as Ross declared how “lucky” she was to be at the Renaissance World Tour.
“You sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to me, so I wanted to sing it to you,” Ross added, referring to the time in 2019 when the “Cuff It” singer performed a rendition of “Happy Birthday To You” at Ross’s 75th birthday, at the request of Ross’s daughter, Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross.
