Life Lessons from the Divas
The Divas
This program is inspiring, motivational, entertaining and educational. It is "motivational edutainment." Whitney Houston pays tribute to two successful artists who paved the way for her, Tina Turner and Diana Ross. Some forty years ago black artists were not permitted to eat in public restaurants nor obtain hotel accommodations because of the color of their skin. Yet they persevered and endured these obstacles and hardships and became Superstars. Joanna impersonates and sings the songs of all three Divas. Each Diva has a message for you:
  • Love and Respect Yourself
  • Never Give Up
  • Believe in Yourself This is a high-energy show with music, great vocals, costume changes and lots of audience participation. It has been used as a reward for accelerated readers, honor students, PTA nights, teacher appreciation week and other special events. This program can be held in the auditorium, cafetorium, or gym. Stage is preferred. Program length is 45-60 minutes. It can be altered to fit your needs and it is appropriate for all ages.
