Diana Ross can’t be stopped. The legendary Motown singer is touring into her golden years, with a date set in Providence, Rhode Island on Thursday night.

The show almost got delayed, though, after Ross was in a car accident Wednesday. But that wasn’t enough to deter the 72-year-old. “I was involved in a car accident yesterday, but I’m fine,” she wrote on Twitter. “I will see you tonight at the show in Providence.” She elaborated on Facebook: “I’m going to be a little sore, but it was mostly shocking. I have a very tiny sore bump on my forehead at my hairline. I ask you not to worry. I will see you tonight at the show in Providence.”

Ross’ last release was November’s Diana Ross Sings Songs From The Wiz, ahead of NBC’s live take on the musical. She recorded new versions of two tracks (“Be a Lion” and “Home”) and included a previously unreleased one (“Wonder, Wonder Why”).
