R n’ B singers Ledisi, Anita Baker and Mavis Staples are the latest names to be added to the ever expanding list of performers for this year’s VH1 Divas Live Concert.

Other performers include Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Travie McCoy, Estelle and Marsha Ambrosius.

Performers already listed for the event include Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Florence + the Machine, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J. and Jill Scott.

A rep for VH1 says that “. . . this year’s Divas will be a must-see event.”

The Divas red carpet will be live-streamed on Sunday, December 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. EST. Divas premiers Monday, December 19, at 9 p.m. EST.
