This is going to be truly something special.
Whitney Houston appeared on the VH1 Divas special in 1999, 2002, and 2003, and although her passing earlier in the year means we'll never get to hear her incredible vocal abilities live on stage again, this year's event, taking place in December, will be a tribute to a woman who embodied the title in all the best ways!
Sources close to production have revealed that they not only have the approval of Houston's family and former record label, Sony, but her musical director Ricky Minor has even signed on as an executive producer!
VH1 President Tom Calderone says:
"We all felt that if any show could pay tribute to Whitney's music, it would be 'Divas.' December felt like enough time where it wouldn't be sad anymore, you'd want to celebrate her music."
Well although we doubt the tragedy or her passing will ever truly be gone forever, we think that this is a wonderful way to honor her memory, and all of the beautiful tunes she left behind for us all!
Can't WAIT to find out what the roster of performers will be like this year!
There's no question that it's going to be an EPIC line-up!
We miss you, Whitney!
