Whitney Houston to be honoured as a Diva

The late Whitney Houston
The late singer Whitney Houston will be honoured on VH1's 'Divas' episode. The popular show, which sees some of the world's biggest female performers collaborate, will pay homage to the late superstar when the programme is filmed later this year. Whitney's long-time musical director Rickey Minor has been booked as executive producer for the special, which will take place in Los Angeles in December, reports Billboard. "We all felt that if any show could pay tribute to Whitney's music, it would be Divas," VH1 president Tom Calderone said. "December felt like enough time where it wouldn't be sad anymore, you'd want to celebrate her music." The late singer appeared on VH1 Divas three times during her career, in 1999, 2002 and 2003. Performers for the Whitney Houston tribute instalment have yet to be confirmed.
