the fireproof Diana Rosswho turned 78 in March, has demonstrated this Wednesday in Starlite Marbellawhere he has offered his only performance in Spain with his thank you tourwhich still has a lot to sing and a lot of audiences to get out to dance.
A few minutes after 10:00 p.m. the first chords of the imposing orchestra that accompanied the artistten musicians and four voices in the choirs- and with them began a concert that became a true review of his more than six decades of musical successes.
Immediately afterwards, to cheers and applause, the American landed on the stage of La Cantera de Nagüeles with a spectacular white sequin dress and a huge tulle stole -the first of the four that she would wear tonight- in the purest style of the divas of the golden years of Hollywood.
He began singing some of the most popular songs from his time as a vocalist in The Supremesa group with which he rose to fame in the sixties, including, More today than yesterday either Stop! In the name of lovetoday hymns of several generations and a worthy advance of what was to come.
During a performance in which he has not allowed himself to be photographed by the graphic press, but in which the mobile screens shone like fireflies over a sea of enthusiastic fans, Ross has wasted energy and has performed with brio pieces from his solo albums such as upside down either chain reaction.
There has also been a place in Marbella for some of the star songs of Thank youreleased in 2021, his first studio album since it saw the light i love you in 2006. This last work, whose songs he recorded in his home studio during the pandemic from COVID includes, in addition to reflective songs, happy melodies like “If the world just danced”, whose interpretation made the respectable vibrate.
Between public, emblematic figures of the Marbella night like Gunilla von Bismarck, who on this occasion attended without the company of his inseparable Luis Ortiz; or the Minister of Culture and Sports, Miquel Iceta, who was visiting Starlite for the first time and who did not resist dancing to the pop rhythm of the diva from Michigan.
