Diana Ross' daughter is coming out and she wants Las Vegas to know!

Tracee Ellis Ross surprised fans Sunday afternoon when she took to Facebook and shared a video from a recent concert with her mom.

As it turns out, this show wasn't just your ordinary night in Las Vegas. In actuality, Diana had big plans up her sleeve.

"Last week, my mom, out of nowhere, stopped her show and asked me to come on stage and sing. I think the last time my mom asked me to sing I was 5 or 6 years old," Tracee wrote to her 1.2 million fans. "I swear at first I thought she said Evan (my brother, a singer, who was also there). But then I realized she said my name, and before I could think, I was walking toward the stage!"

Before she knew it, the 43-year-old had the floor in front of thousands of excited fans. Perhaps it's safe to say the Black-ish star was a little nervous? You bet!

"There's something about singing… It's no joke trying to do that as the child of DIANA ROSS, let alone while standing by her side on stage. Plus, when you're nervous, it's hard to hear, it's hard to breathe, and it's hard to be present. These are all important things when you are singing!" she explained. "Anyway, here it is, me stepping on stage with my mom, fighting through so many childhood fears and fantasies."

So what was the end result? Pure mother-daughter magic!  Between hugs, laughs and even a few tears, the duo got people on their feet with their rendition of "Lady Sings the Blues" inside The Venetian Theater. 

The unique opportunity proved to be a special experience for Tracee who later shared how grateful she was to have Diana as her mom.  

"All my life I have witnessed her as Diana Ross the icon and Diana Ross the mother, and I have experienced her seamlessly bridge this incredible dichotomy with grace and ease. She is a nurturing and fierce mom, intimate and ancient, in a setting that isn't meant to support mothering: on stage with the whole world watching," she explained. "There is a way in which she creates privacy and makes space for the sacred in the most public of settings. It is profound, and defines an infinite depth and wisdom that my mom holds. She has always carved out space for her children. I have always known I was the priority."

She concluded, "It has been ages since I've hidden so deeply in my mother's embrace and it was awesome."
