Jennifer Hudson and Sheryl Crow are among several recent additions to VH1’s forthcoming VH1 Divas presentation. Hosted by Paula Abdul, the forthcoming VH1 Divas will feature performances from both divas, in addition to guest appearances from Cyndi Lauper and Toni Braxton, September 17. Slated to air at 9pm, VH1 Divas will also include Live! performances from previously revealed singers Adele, Leona Lewis and Jordin Sparks. As in previous years, this “VH1 Divas” special will raise funds for the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in American public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education. Since VH1 Save The Music was created in 1997, more than $43 million worth of musical instruments have been donated to 1,600 public schools in 100 cities, improving the lives of more than 1.2 million children.
