After taking a four year break, VH1 Divas return with what promises to be a star studded show. VH1 will air “VH1 Divas” LIVE from the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday, September 17.
Originally premiering on VH1 in 1998, “VH1 Divas” became synonymous with some of the most memorable live female vocal performances in television history. It quickly gained popularity and was the first of it’s kind on VH1 opening doors for specials such as VH1’s Hip Hop Honors. Featured performers consist of a who’s who in the music industry. Everyone from vocal greats (Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, and Chaka Khan) to established artists (Mary J. Blige, WhitneyHouston and Mariah Carey) to up and coming artists (Beyonce and Brandy) graced the stage during these electric performances.
In an effort to get fans involved VH1 wants to hear from “Divas” fans to help determine the direction of the show. Beginning today, VH1 is asking users to tell them who they’d like to see perform at this year’s “VH1 Divas.” Go to Divas.VH1.com now to leave your comments about who you’d like to see on stage this year.
I am a little anxious to see who “the people” request to see perform this year. My personal favorites include India.Arie, Chrisette Michele, Amel Larrieux and Laura Izibor. Who would you like to see perform?
