Ross, who performed some of her set while walking through the audience, was introduced onstage by her 9-year-old grandson, Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick, son of her daughter Rhonda Ross Kendrick. "So, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my grand-mommy Diana Ross".

In a night with a number of impressive performances, Diana Ross made a memorable impression at the 61st Grammy Awards with a medley of songs including "The Best Years of My Life". "She has shown the whole world that nothing is beyond our reach", he said with all the confidence in the world. She exclaimed, "Thank you for being here and celebrating my 75th birthday!"

The music icon then asked the audience to sing along with her.

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

Diana capped off her iconic performance with a message, telling the audience: "Together we have no limits. Learn, dream, unlock new doors, all is possible, all is possible with music and with you".

The singer - a proud mom and grandmother - was joined by her kids and grandchildren who were in the crowd to watch her "Diamond Diana" performance.

Diana concluded her performance by yelling, "Happy Birthday to Me!"

This isn't the first time that Ross has earned special recognition from the Recording Academy: In 2012, the singer was honored with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.
