Diana Ross Says Goodbye to COVID-19 Pandemic When Closing Glastonbury Festival

The 'Endless Love' songstress also tells the crowd at the Pyramid Stage that she's 'grateful' for this life and 'filled with thankfulness' for each of her fans.

AceShowbiz - Diana Ross closed the Glastonbury festival by saying farewell to the COVID pandemic. As she played a set filled with her hits on Sunday evening, June 26, the Supremes singer also told thousands of fans gathered at the Pyramid Stage she was "filled with thankfulness for each of you."

"During these last three years, I'm going to call it a vacation, it gave me a chance to really think about the important things in life because I couldn't go on the road, and the album is called 'Thank You'," the 78-year-old said as referring to the global COVID lockdowns and her latest album. "I want you to know how grateful I am for this life, I am filled with thankfulness for each of you, I love the idea of singing in the daytime... I can look into your eyes."

The Grammy winner later told the crowd, "Feel the power of love." After announcing she had recently turned 78, the singer urged the crowd to dance with her as a line of security staff performed a routine to "Upside Down." She insisted she felt much younger, adding, "If I can move my body like this when I'm 48 years old... well, I feel 48 years old."

Ross started her set with 1980's "I'm Coming Out", followed by renditions of "Baby Love", "You Can't Hurry Love", "Stop! In The Name Of Love" and "Chain Reaction". A slideshow of photos from her long career were shown to the crowd, and she also performed "I Will Survive" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough".

Her set defied forecasts of rain, with the crowd wearing Diana Ross masks as the sun shone on the end of the first Glastonbury since 2019 after the COVID pandemic caused the 2020 and 2021 festivals to be canceled.
