Most importantly she was a star who let the show go on and new what to do with crappy sudden rainstorms like the ones we've been plagued with all summer long. In 1983 she was performing in Central Park when a bastard of a storm broke out. Ross carried on for several minutes in the rain while telling her fans to go home and promising (and fulfilling that promise) to perform the next night free of charge.
So what if she made the promise without permission from the city. I told you she was a prima donna, and the world can tell you she is a star!
