VH1 is bringing back “VH1 Divas,” which benefits the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. Mary J. Blige Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott, Florence + The Machine, Kelly Clarkson and Jessie J will headline “VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul” which is set to air on December 19 in New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
This year’s concert will pay tribute to the soulful sounds of such great cities as Chicago, Detroit, London, Philadelphia and Memphis, all of which played a key role in the development of the genre that birthed a slew of timeless classics.
“This year’s telecast will showcase the vast impact soul music has had on the 21st century’s music and pop culture landscape as our talented and diverse lineup will attest,” said VH1 executive Lee Rolontz. “This year’s ‘Divas’ offers a modern twist on soul music, all while tipping its hat to the legacy of key cities that created this musical heritage.”
The ladies will also be accompanied by the house band The Roots.
I can’t wait for this show, glad to see that it’s back! Wonder if Adele will make an appearance? Hmmmm….
