She will survive
Though Sunday night's Divas 2000: A Tribute To Diana Ross concert at the Theater at Madison
Square Garden in New York was indeed a tribute to the supremest of the Supremes, for Diana
Ross herself it was nothin' but a house party. The show featured some of the most talented
and well-known divas in the world: Mariah Carey, Donna Summer, Destiny's Child, Faith Hill,
Ru Paul and, of course, Diana Ross. Through it all, however, Ross was able to give the
proceedings an intimate, down-home feel.|
Mariah Carey, who was in fine voice (and fine form) despite a very recent bout with food
poisoning, opened the evening with a version of Ross' solo hit "Love Hangover," which morphed
into Carey's own "Heartbreaker" and included bits of disco classics "Doctor Love" and "Love
To Love You, Baby." In a perilously short silver dress, Carey looked like she could give
Tina Turner a run for her money in the "she's got legs and she knows how to use 'em"
department. And she's got a future in disco, too, should she ever feel like taking a break
from the hip-hop beats. Carey's got both the pipes and the attitude to pull off dance music
Mariah Carey, who came across more as a sweet and sexy homegirl than a fierce ruling diva,
reminisced about seeing Ross at her now-legendary 1983 Central Park concert. Carey was just
a girl then and recalled how Ross valiantly tried to keep the show rolling despite a downpour
of Noah's Ark proportions. The image of Ross trying to defy Mother Nature herself stuck with
Carey: The diva would not be dismissed.
Finally, in the ultimate diva duet, Ross was joined by Carey for "Baby Love" and "Stop! In
The Name Of Love," trademark hand gestures intact. For this vocal summit, they both wore
versions of the perilously short dress in which Carey opened the evening - and they both
The entire "diva-licious" crew, as Carey put it, returned for the grand finale: Ross' signature
tune, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

First off, I'd like to point out almost 3 weeks ago I posted that Mariah had a cold and would gradually get better as she gets over it. I don't doubt emotional issues would also take a toll along with lack of sleep doesn't help. I claimed this would cause her healing to take awhile and as Mariah's vocals improved the press would simply stop talking... read more

It's on YouTube, so you can get your copy there. I watched that performance right after I read so many negative things about MC's voice. I shed a tear, because what did she know back then? She gave everything. She doen't have to be exactly that now, but if only the focus en the caretaking of her voice returns, I'll be happy.

Forget the negative media, they're irrelevant. As fans we received a phenomenal album, rave reviews. Mariah looks great. Mariah seems to have recovered from what ever cold/allergies she had, her voice soon followed. It looks as though they are filming all the concerts which means a concert DVD release for next year perhaps. Her dancers have made it... read more
