“VH1 Divas” is putting the soul back into their hit series. This year the show will be paying homage to the cities that gave birth to soul music and inspired some of today’s hottest divas. Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott, Jessie J, Kelly Clarkson, and Florence + The Machine will lend their vocals to the show and help in bringing the house down with some good old-fashioned soul classics. The show will be taped at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City and will air Dec. 19 at 9pm on VH1.
The divas will be paying tribute to the soul cities of Chicago, Detroit, London, Memphis, and Philadelphia. The singers will be backed by the musical stylings of The Roots. This is a definite must see.
“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 Lee Rolontz, EVP, Original Music Production & Development, VH1 and VH1 Classic. “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.”
I can’t wait! Will you be watching?
