Premiering on VH1 in 1998, “Divas” became synonymous with some of the
most memorable live female vocal performances in television history.
The show quickly became a highly anticipated annual phenomenon,
generating speculation among music fans and industry executives on who
would be part of that year’s telecast. Last year, the “Divas” franchise
returned to critical acclaim after a four year hiatus, reinvigorating
the franchise with the best of current female performers that included
Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis and
Jordin Sparks. Previous featured performers over the years included
Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Cher, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Aretha
Franklin, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Whitney Houston,
Beyonce, Chaka Khan and many more.
The USO Presents “VH1 Divas Salute The Troops” is executive produced by Lee Rolontz, Rick Krim and Greg Sills. Kelly Brock and David Wild serve as co-producers.
The USO Presents “VH1 Divas Salute The Troops” is presented by AT&T, Old Navy, GEICO, Wendy’s International and COVERGIRL.
