Slated to tape in December, this installment of the annual series will feature performances honoring the late award-winning talent.
While acts have not been announced, Rickey Minor, Houston's longtime musical director, has been confirmed to act as an executive producer.
Houston had performed on VH1 Divas programs including Divas Live three times over the course of her career.
The Houston family has also approved of the tribute.
Earlier this year VH1 produced a special titled "Whitney Houston: Death of a Diva," which took a look at the singer's final days and most memorable moments.
