"VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul" starring Chaka Khan, Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige, Ledisi, Jennifer Hudson and others was the hottest ticket in town this week. ESSENCE.com was on hand to chat with the divas about how it feels to be involved -- and who they were most looking forward to seeing!
And of course, a little red carpet performance from diva legend extraordinaire Mavis Staples added to the night's glowing atmosphere.
Take a peek at this exclusive red carpet footage.
