Diana Ross Sings Happy Birthday to Beyoncé During Renaissance World Tour Surprise Performance


September 6, 2023

The legendary Diana Ross has officially serenaded Queen Bey!

The “Renaissance World Tour” kicked off on May 10 in Stockholm, Sweden. And since then, it’s been a beautiful congregation of love in celebration of Beyoncé. Week after week, hundreds of thousands have gathered across the globe to collectively release their troubles in a concert experience that Oprah Winfrey herself called “transcendent.” 

This weekend, the show hit its peak as Beyoncé celebrated her birthday on September 4th during the final of three California shows in Inglewood. And celebs like Tracee Ellis Ross, Quinta Brunson, Gabrielle Union-Wade, Dwayne Wade, and Issa Rae were all in attendance for the big night. Beyoncé was also joined on stage during the show by Kendrick Lamar.

But the highlight of the night came when iconic entertainer and former The Supremes lead singer, Diana Ross, stepped on stage. She was greeted by tons of fanfare as she led the arena in singing the “Happy Birthday” song in honor of Beyoncé’s 42nd birthday


The two embraced during the song, Beyoncé smiling with joy as she held hands with Ross. She profusely thanked Ross when the song ended, expressing her sincere gratitude. 

“Thank you so much. You are so amazing. This is the legendary Diana Ross,” said Bey.

The “Renaissance World Tour” is expected to continue through the first week of October, with the last show slated for October 1 in Kansas City, Missouri.


It is being lauded as one of the most influential tours of the past several decades, with Beyoncé slated to bring in up to $2.4 billion in ticket sales revenue alone. And with several dates left to go, the tour may reportedly become the all-time highest-grossing tour by a female artist.
