Tracee Ellis Ross is proud to be the daughter of an icon.

The 50-year-old was in a nostalgic mood, sharing clips from her mom Diana Ross' legendary 1983 New York City performance.

In one video, the former Supremes lead is captured belting out her famous cover of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," which was featured on her debut album and scored her a No. 1 single in 1970. The second clip shows the singer performing her solo hit "I'm Coming Out," wearing a sparkling purple bodysuit.

The Black-ish alum captioned the post, "There are a few moments in history that define a generation of music, popular culture & humanity. My mama @dianaross’s concert in @centralparknyc, 40 years ago today, is one of those moments ❤️ She is the stuff of which entertainment legends are made."
