Music legend Grace Jones proved she is nothing less than superhuman with an iconic performance to kick off Pride Month in New York on Wednesday night.

The concert opened with 75-year-old Grace Jones suspended by a cherrypicker some 15 metres above the stage. A billowing black and white dress reached down to the stage where she eventually landed.

Grace started with Nightclubbing and ran through her greatest hits including Slave to the Rythm. She performed live and sang all six minutes of Slave while keeping a hula hoop in motion around her waist.
