OFTEN children of famous people bask in their limelight and obtain secondhand celebrity status but this is not the case of Rhonda Ross, daughter of soul diva Diana Ross.
Diana had entered into a relationship with the Berry Gordy boss of Tamla Motown and was pregnant with Rhonda her first child when she married another music executive Robert Silberstein who chose to raise Rhonda as his own.
Not content to simply live her life as the daughter of a superstar she became an actress, appearing in a number of films and US TV programmes, being nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award.
After spending some years running a real estate company and marrying jazz musician Rodney Kendrick, she gravitated naturally to music and actually opened for her mother’s In the Name of Love tour in 2013.
Rhonda released her first album In Case You Didn’t Know in 2016 and as part ofa European tour which has taken her with her husband to France, Germany and Switzerland, the pair will be playing for the first time at the Jimmy Glass Jazz Bar in Sevilla as part of its 25th Anniversary Celebrations on Tuesday September 26.
She will be supported by a quartet consisting of husband Rodney playing piano as well as established musicians on saxophone, double bass and drums.
This is an opportunity for lovers of jazz and sweet vocals to make the relatively short journey to see a sensational singer and tight band making a very rare performance in Spain.
