Patti LaBelle is confirmed to perform on the 2016 VH1 Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night set to air on Monday, December 5, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT. LaBelle joins previously announced performer Mariah Carey for the holiday-themed musical event taking place at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY. LaBelle headlined the VH1 Save the Music Foundation in 2004, her first appearance on a Divas special.
“I’m so excited to share the VH1 DIVAS stage with Mariah, who is not only a phenomenal singer and performer, but also my goddaughter. This is going to be really, really special,” said LaBelle.
The VH1 Divas series launched in 1998 and the 2016 holiday show marks the first new Divas in four years. The Unsilent Night special will be executive produced by Jesse Ignatovic, Evan Prager, Chris Choun, Jen Jones, Lee Lodge, Amy Doyle, Ryan Kroft and Elena Diaz.
Details on VH1 Divas: “VH1 Divas has assembled the most dynamic and prolific female performers the industry has to offer, celebrating their raw talent and invaluable contributions to pop culture. After a four-year hiatus, the Divas have returned, just in time for the holidays, for a night that promises to be both festive and fabulous in equal measure. Additional performers will be announced shortly.”
