Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Miley Cyrus and others yet to be named will star on “VH1 Divas” on September 14. The concert will air live at 9 p.m. at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, NY.
Returning after a four-year hiatus, the VH1 show will raise funds for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in American public schools.
VIP tickets and Gold Circle ticket packages will be available for the event, as well as pre- and post-party access, by calling 212-846-7324.
“An amazingly talented group of young women have successfully launched themselves into the global music scene since our last VH1 Divas show,” said VH1’s Lee Rolontz in a statement. “We’re very excited to have so many of them join us at this year’s momentous event. Adele, Kelly, Leona and Miley have all captured the world’s attention with their talent and have earned their designation as VH1 Divas this year.”
Rolontz continued, “Don’t let some of their young ages fool you — these women are among the best entertainers in the world and will continue to thrill music fans for a long time to come.”
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 have been featured as VH1 Divas in the past. The program launched in 1998 and ran annually through 2004.
