Diana Ross looks stunning aboard her float in the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade as she sings the chorus of her son’s newest single, “I Do,” alongside two of her beautiful daughters.
Tracee Ellis Ross took to Instagram to delight fans with a video of her singing with her mom, sister Rhonda Ross and sister-in-law Kimberly Ryan-Naess, Ross Naess’ wife, aboard their Hallmark Channel's Advent calendar-themed float at the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
All wearing white, the four women sang along “I Do,” Evan Ross and wife Ashlee Simpson’s newest single, which was released just a few weeks ago. In the clips, Tracee and Rhonda are first seen belting out one verse of the song, and as the chorus approaches, Diana gets in the frame, with her wild mane taking over most of it. Kimberly appears near the end.
“IT WAS COLD BUT WE HAD A BALL // FAMILY TIME #macysthanksgivingdayparade,” Tracee captioned the clip.
Fans took over the comment section to praise the Ross family, their beauty and their fun-filled act at the parade.
“Your mom is gorgeous and your family is beautiful. I didn't watch the parade much this year. I wish that I had, just to see you all. It looks like you had a blast. Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to you all.” - @allgoodcarolyn682

The 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade earned lots of critics all over social media because of its controversial use of lip syncing and the fact that all of the artists featured on the celebration, including John Legend, Rita Ora, Kelly Clarkson, and Diana Ross, had to “pretend” they were giving the New York audience a live show.
But as most of the burden was laid on Rita Ora, and Legend was the one to confirm through a tweet that the floats didn’t have the sound equipment required to sing live, Diana Ross was praised for remaining unbothered and proving that her titles of diva and an icon are not underserved.
While the rest of the artists tried to lip-sync, Ross didn’t even bother to bring a microphone to the float, focusing instead in having fun with her large family and waving to her fans while roaming the streets in her shaggy coat with a ballgown underneath.
In a separate post, Tracee Ellis thanked her mother for always making sure the entire family is included for the holidays. She wrote:
“I love my family, I love being with everyone so much. We have so much fun and no one shies away from a good ‘moment.’ But the biggest shout out of all always goes to my mom for always thinking of everybody, including everybody, and making sure that we’re all comfortable and happy.”
And concluded: “Thank you @dianaross for teaching me the meaning of family and that love is an action.”
