Diana Ross and Fathom Events celebrated the star’s 75th Diamond Diana Birthday Celebration with a special gift to fans around the world.

The exclusive theatrical release featured a remastered version of Ross’ iconic Central Park concert, documented in July 1983 and considered one of the most important landmark events in music and entertainment history. The cinema event also included special, never-before-seen footage and messages from the Ross family, including sons Ross Naess and Evan Ross, daughters Rhonda Ross Kendrick and Chudney Ross, with Tracee Ellis Ross giving a loving and passionate introduction to the film in celebration of the superstar’s legacy.
“I envisioned a dream and that’s what I created over those two days in Central Park. I picked a goal, and then imagined all the details,” Ms. Ross said. “I believe imagination is magical, that we can think of something and bring it into being.”
Directed by award-winning producer and director Steve Binder, “Diana Ross: Live in Central Park” was filmed over the course of two days when nearly 1.2 million people united on the Great Lawn of Central Park to experience a moment that defined a generation, bringing together music fans to experience one of the greatest artists of all time.
