However, despite having a fantastic voice, Ross, who has been a model, actor and activist, never pursued a singing career. 

Perhaps it was the pressure of having Diana Ross as a mother, but the actor even refused to sing in the choir when she was in high school. She said

 

"I have wanted to sing since I was a kid but it was something I buried because it was too scary a dream."

Ellis Ross

sometimes sang in public, she would always add a "flair of comedy," revealing that it had been one of her fears when she was a child. 

However, it seems she is slowly changing her mind and the star shared a clip of herself singing during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, bringing both the Host and the audience to tears. 

 

As her premier has been canceled, the actress has been finding ways to keep busy, even coming up with a new Instagram challenge. 

Rather like the #Pillowchallenge, this time, Ellis Ross shared a video of herself wearing sweatpants as a jumpsuit calling it the #Sweatschallenge. Do you think it will catch on?
