VH1 “Divas Celebrate Soul” Concert Tributes Amy Winehouse

VH1 aired their “Divas Celebrate Soul” concert last night, which was taped at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. The clip above shows Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, and Kelly Clarkson opening the show with The Supremes’ track “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.”

Erykah Badu, Chaka Kahn, Estelle, and Boyz II Men were among the other performers of the night. The concert ended with a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse, introduced by Nas: “I’m here to honor a woman who had enough soul to last a lifetime. I wish she was here tonight, but like smoke, Amy Winehouse is still in the air lingering around all of us, and she’ll be here for a long time to come.”

Shoutout Yardie for the video.
