    Aretha don’t even like Clive

  2. T Always Right August 15, 2018

    Clearly if Clive is handling it Jennifer Hudson will be front row center.
    However please have Beyonce, Mariah, Celine, Alicia Keys, Rochelle Ferrell, Jazmine Sullivan, Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, Fantasia, Jill Scott, Tamia, Mary J. Blige, Melissa Etheridge, Tamela Mann, The Clark Sisters, Shirley Ceaser, Lauryn Hill, and honestly many more plus get some great Choirs please. Have Oprah and Smokie and Stevie Wonder all speak. Please don’t drop the ball.

    man they need to get Fantasia

  4. Dev August 16, 2018

    So Fantasia and KeKe Whyat and Jazmine Sullivan are a must with Jessie J, JoJo and Kelly Clarkson for the white audience with some MJB, Chaka Khan maybe Faith Evans, Tweet and a few others…. maybe Ruben.
    I do not want to see Ariana Grande, Tamar Braxton or K.Michelle or Christina Aguilera or Marsha Ambrosia
