The special will be taped in December in Los Angeles with Houston's longtime musical director Rickey Minor handling executive producer duties.

Houston herself has been a three-time performer on Divas in 1999, 2002, and 2003. Performers for the show have yet to be announced.

"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."
