Diana Ross at the Hollywood Bowl
A week ago, Ed and I were fortunate to see Diana Ross in concert at the Hollywood Bowl. And, boy was she fantastic. To start, after being introduced by her daughter Tracee, she made a dramatic entrance on a swing from the top rear of the stage down to the front-center of the stage, singing "I'm Coming Out." During the evening, she sang many of her hits, including "Baby Love," "You Can't Hurry Love," and "Stop in the Name of Love." She dedicated "Good Morning Heartache" to Gordy Berry, her former love and Motown boss and, when she sang "Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Hand," the audience linked hands, swaying to the inspiring, soft sounds. Ross, the glamour queen, graced the stage with at least four incredible, flowing outfits--red, turquoise, gold, and black--that, along with her final song--"I Will Survive," helped us remember that her songs will last forever.
