VH1 to pay tribute to Whitney Houtson with 'Divas' show
The late Whitney Houston is set to be honoured by VH1 later this year as the network plans to pay tribute to her in its next installment of 'VH1 Divas'.
Billboard reports that the concert will take place in December in Los Angeles and is going to be filmed for the televised special, although no artists have been confirmed for the live performances as of yet.
Houston is no stranger to "Divas" as she performed on the show in 1999, 2002 and 2003.
The president of VH1, Tom Calderone, issued a statement on the news and explained that Houston's loved ones have given their blessing to the proposal so they are happy to go ahead with the project:
"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."
