Divas Live '99 was a charity concert for the VH-1 Save The Music Foundation at New Yorks Beacon Theatre on April 13, 1999. Tina opened the show and performed two songs solo as well as „The Bitch Is Back“ together with Elton John and last but not least Proud Mary with Elton and Cher. Unfortunately Let's Stay Together from the original setlist is not included on any format.

Released 1999 from BMG / Ariola Records on cassette and compact disc, Divas Live reached #60 in Germany an #90 in America. The home video was directed by Michael A. Simon and released in 2000 from Icestorm on VHS and DVD, certified gold in America.

Billboard Magazine
November 13, 1999

One of the highest-rated concert specials in VH1 history has been nicely captured on disc, and unlike many other recordings of similar events, this collection stands lairly strong without its visual counterpart. The lineup is Tina Turner, Cher, Elton John, Brandy, LeAnn Rimes, and Whitney Houston — some of whom fare better than others.

Turner once again proves that she’s one of the most electric performers working, breathing excitement into her well-worn hit "The Best," as well as injecting ample sass into her duet with John on "The Bitch Is Back."

Cher and Rimes are also quite memorable in their all-too-brief performances, while Houston is a soulful revelation in her duet with Mary J. Blige on „Ain't No Way." Although Brandy's coming out as a full-fledged diva seems a bit premature, she’s lovely on her recent pop hit "Have You Ever?," and she reveals intriguing chemistry with Faith Hill on "Everything l Do."
