Diana Ross Speech to the Royal Family
Below is what the above video says was contained in the speech Diana Ross made to the Royal Family in 1968.
I have never seen it reported.
Was anyone there? Did it happen this way?
I want to report a share of the speech that Diana Ross made, after Martin Luther King's murder, at Royal Albert Hall , in front of the British Royal Family, in London, November 19, 1968,
While she is singing ( with The Supremes ) "SOMEWHERE ", stops the music and starts to talk : " I haven' t to many changes to speak to very important people like who stay in front of me tonight. Like you see, I'm black and you are whites .I sing and you hear me ; then, when all is finished, we go all out from the hall, together. There are some States of my country, the USA, where whites and blacks haven' t the same rights : they can't go out from the same door.
I wanna that you think about when you'll go home ". A cold silence fall in the hall and someone, from the last rows, start to clap . In short, all the audience , include the Royal Family members, give to Diana Ross and the Supremes a standing ovation lasted more than 2 minutes ! Miss Ross thanks and continues the concert . After the show, Diana Ross and the Supremes were received by the Queen Mother .
