Forget a DJ or wedding band, Diana Ross is taking the musical entertainment at her son’s wedding into her own hands. The queen Supreme plans to sing for her son, Evan Ross, and his bride-to-be, pop singer Ashlee Simpson, at their upcoming wedding.
According to E! News, Ross will take center stage on her son’s big day along with her daughter, Rhonda Ross Kendrick. Talk about a musical family affair! An insider also tells E! that fellow Motown royalty Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson have also been invited to the wedding. Now that’s one guest list we want to be on.
Evan, who plays Messalla in the upcoming film Hunger Games: Mockingjay, gushed about his upcoming nuptials to Simpson and revealed his pop icon mother has been involved in the planning every step of the way.
“She”s involved in all levels of my life,” he explained at SXSW, according to VVN. “‘She’s one of the most incredible mothers ever. My mom is 69 and she’s going on tour again. She was on tour last year and even going tour, she”s involved in every piece of our wedding [and] engagement party.”
