Whitney Houston to Be Honored by ‘VH1 Divas’

VH1 is paying tribute to one of the greatest divas of all time—Whitney Houston. The network will honor the late legend during the next installment of “VH1 Divas” this fall.

The show will be taped in Los Angeles in December, reports Billboard. Houston’s longtime musical director Rickey Minor has signed on as executive producer. So far, no artists have been announced for the tribute, which has received the blessing of Houston’s family and her label.

“We all felt that if any show could pay tribute to Whitney’s music, it would be ‘Divas,'” said VH1 president Tom Calderone. “December felt like enough time where it wouldn’t be sad anymore, you’d want to celebrate her music.”

Houston, who tragically passed away in February at 48, performed three times on “Divas” in 1999, 2002, and 2003.
