share close

Soul legend Diana Ross has paid tribute to her sons for giving her the “confidence and encouragement” to make her first music video in more than 10 years.

The 77-year-old will release Thank You, which she recorded at her home studio, on Friday – 15 years after her last studio album.

Ross teased a small snippet of new video for song All Is Well, which showed her singing the opening lines of the song: “There’s beauty all around you, right on display.”

She said: “My sons gave me the confidence and encouragement to make this video.

“After spending almost two years not performing and not being in front of the camera, they supported me in easing back into being around lots of people.

“These three people really took care of me: Evan Ross (producer), Amanda Demme (director), Ross Naess (photography), and so many others.

“I am filled with appreciation for the work that they all did to make this happen.”
