Some fans may not remember but Beyoncé once portrayed The Supremes singer in the movie Dreamgirls which was loosely based on Diana’s life.
Diana’s daughter Tracee Ellis Ross wanted someone special to do the honors of singing her mom “Happy Birthday.” “I do not want to hold the mic while this happens,” Tracee, 46, admitted.
She first asked if Barry Gordy, the founder of Motown, or Diddy wanted to sing but the crowd demanded Beyoncé. Tracee asked over a microphone, “Beyoncé? Are you still here? Do you want to sing 'Happy Birthday?' Come on down!”
Beyoncé, 37, then joined Diana and sung to her in front of a famous crowd of guests. “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” Diana told Beyoncé.
Diddy’s daughters later joined Diana on stage to perform a song from the Dreamgirls soundtrack.
