The 78-year-old hitmaker — who has been secretly working on her 50th album — rocked a stunning all pink outfit for the big day.

She looked effortlessly gorgeous in skin-tight long sleeve pink top with textured pattern around the neckline and bottom that clung to her chest.

Her sparkly pink pants tied the look together as they glistened under the lights of the stage as she preformed one of her hits.

The blonde beauty wore her signature layered locks loose as they sat on her shoulders while she sported sky high silver heels.
