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. The entire performance from Tina, but unfortunately without Let's Stay Together, was released on LP and home video. Also the video version of Proud Mary is shorter.

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.“
