TV One found success last year when their reality show “R&B Divas” caught on with a cult following. Rumors have been swirling about the next season, and the news has been confirmed. The network is moving forward with the show, but moving out west as the cast of “R&B Divas: L.A.” has been revealed. This was one of the few reality shows that shed a more positive light on African American woman and the music industry, let’s hope the show continues on the positive path.
“Over eight episodes, ‘R&B Divas L.A.’ will follow six multitalented ladies as they seek to individually and collectively re-establish themselves in the pop culture limelight with new deals, new drama and new directions for their careers and their lives. Success is the only option for these six friends – but is there room at the top for them all? ”

Just days before her tragic passing, Whitney Houston attended “Kelly Price & Friends Unplugged: For the Love of R&B” at Tru Hollywood. She dedicated the gospel hymn “Jesus Loves Me” to her “Heartbreak Hotel” collaborator Price.
Singersroom held its third Acoustic Conversation series at the posh furniture store, BoConcepts, in New York City. The magical night was all about Grammy Nominated R&B singer Kelly price and her sixth solo studio album ‘Kelly,’ which is now in stores.
In her acoustic set, Price kicked things off with a riveting performance of “As We Lay,” took the audience to church with a lovely gospel/R&B cut, brought up fans from the crowd for a monumental performance of “Friend of Mine” and soothed the soul of all onlookers with new single “Not My Daddy.”
With magic in the air, fans tearing and a room just engulfed with love for the wonderful Mrs. Price, she became emotional, breaking down in front of the people who love and appreciate her.
“I’m so messed up right now,” says an emotional Price. “I really really thank God for you. So many singers right now want an opportunity and can’t find one. It’s the most amazing thing in the world to me and it really hit me like a ton of bricks…It’s been eight years since I’ve released a mainstream album…I’m grateful that there were people waiting for me; you were waiting for me and I appreciate it so much. So from the bottom of my heart, I just want to say thank you so much.”
