Tracee Ellis Ross shares biggest fear of being compared to mother Diana Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross has said it became her “biggest fear” to sing in public because of comparisons that would be made to her famous mother, Diana Ross.

The Black-ish actress, 47, battled her nerves to play a chart-topping diva, Grace Davis, in her new film The High Note.

She told the PA news agency: “It was my biggest dream as a child and somehow, with waiting as long as I did, became my biggest fear.

“Being my mom’s child, of course, duh, that’s some big shoes to step into, she’s just an international icon and beloved by the world and broke barriers and opened up roads etc.
