On this episode of “R&B Divas,” we got a chance to see the softer side of the ‘divas’ instead of the malicious, drama side. The girls were all invited to perform at an AIDS Charity event by Sheryl Lee Ralph and while Angie and LaTocha were missing, the other girls agreed to perform. Each of them had an emotional experience with the disease so of course performing at the event brought a few of them to tears. Meanwhile, Angie and LaTocha worked on their own careers and tried to get back on track with the tour. Find out what happened below.
Preparing For The AIDS Event
Since the ladies were all invited to the AIDS event, they were feeling honored and emotional at the same time. Monifah lost her brother to cancer and she wanted to honor his memory in a big way. Nicci lost her cousin to AIDS in the 80s and she regretted how she treated him before he died. Keke also revealed later in the episode that one of her family members was currently living with AIDS and thought that when she was performing at the event she would break down into tears. Because the ladies had such an emotional connection to loved ones they had lost to the disease, they were happy to have the chance to honor their memory.
