Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross
Only one diva is supreme enough to be Tracee Ellis Ross' mother. With style and grace, Diana Ross takes the lead and commands the stage, so it comes to no surprise that Tracee Ellis has landed lead roles in TV shows like Reed Between the Lines, Girlfriends and Black-ish.

Cissy Houston and Whitney Houston
A voice as timeless as Whitney Houston's could only come from one place. Two time Grammy award winning soul and gospel artist Cissy Houston's genre-crossing vocals have kept her music alive for decades and Whitney's record breaking hits will undoubtedly do the same. We'll be dancing and falling in love to her music, forever!

You go mama!
