On Thursday, the Recording Academy announced that Ross is slated to take the stage for a “75th Diamond Diana” birthday performance during the annual awards ceremony. She turns 75 on March 26.

Pegged as an “unforgettable Grammy moment,” Ross’s set will commemorate her rich musical history, longstanding contributions and legacy.

“One of the most influential artists and greatest entertainers of all time, Ms. Ross has without a doubt made a profound impact in the world of music,” the Academy says in a statement.

The former leader of The Supremes has racked up 42 number-one hits, 91 singles and 59 albums in her career, and has received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Alicia Keys hosts the 61st annual Grammy Awards, which airs live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS on Sunday, February 10, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
