Diana Ross closes Platinum Party urging crowd to thank the Queen for her service

Diana Ross has closed out the BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace concert

by urging the crowd of spectators to thank the Queen for her service.

Introduced by comedian Lee Mack, the 78-year-old soul singer took to the

stage dressed in a white and black tiered voluminous dress with silver jewellery.

She delivered a selection of her hit songs, opening with Chain Reaction as

an image of a disco ball was projected onto Buckingham Palace.

The singer followed the performance by delivering a message for

the Queen, saying: “Hello, from all the people here tonight, and millions

watching around the world, we have one simple message to you: Thank you.”
