Premiering on VH1 in 1998, “Divas” became synonymous with some of the most memorable live female vocal performances in television history. The show quickly became a highly anticipated annual phenomenon, generating speculation among music fans and industry executives on who would be part of that year’s telecast. Last year, the “Divas” franchise returned to critical acclaim after a four year hiatus, reinvigorating the franchise with the best of current female performers that included Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Leona Lewis and Jordin Sparks. Previous featured performers over the years included 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.
The USO Presents “VH1 Divas Salute The Troops” is executive produced by Lee Rolontz, Rick Krim and Greg Sills. Kelly Brock and David Wild serve as co-producers.
The USO Presents “VH1 Divas Salute The Troops” is presented by AT&T, Old Navy, GEICO, Wendy’s International and COVERGIRL.

A nice little clip of Ann performing Unchained Melody at Teatro Zinzanni. Imagine having a gourmet meal while being serenaded by Ann Wilson. One could only dream! See the video here.
Part circus, part dinner theatre, Teatro ZinZanni is a big night out unlike any other, a three and a half hour whirlwind of international cirque, comedy and cabaret artists all served up with a five-course feast designed by celebrated Northwest chef Tom Douglas. An ever-evolving and constantly changing production, Teatro ZinZanni combines improv comedy, vaudeville revue, music, dance, cirque and sensuality into a dizzying and colorful new form that is never quite the same from evening to evening. The fast-paced action of the show unfolds above, around and even alongside the audience as they dine on a gourmet meal.
This is video taken from the House of Blues, Houston show. The picture is a little upside down but the sound isn't too bad. Ann just blows this one out of the water!

House of Blues
November 4, 2010
From the first chords of the band's opening song, "Cook With Fire" from 1978's Dog and Butterfly, they were on top of it. Ann absolutely wailed, killing on standards like "Barracuda" and "Crazy On You" - as well as the encore covers, Led Zeppelin's "The Ocean" and The Who's "Love Reign O'er Me" - while Nancy was an assured, electric presence. Gone were the corsets and unfortunate high-kicks of the "What About Love" era (third song), replaced by a pair of sisters who seemed genuinely grateful to still be together and playing music after 35 years.

Crazy On You and Dog & Butterfly live at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas. 11/4/10
