Audio Vision: An Explosion Of Diva Power In Paris
Thursday, January 26, 2012
During a tweet scan (follow me!) the other day, Chaka Khan was exuberantly tweeting about Paris' Fashion Week, as well as name dropping the likes of Grace Jones and Sister Sledge in the mix. Somehow I believed this was a figment of my Audio Diva imagination, and kept it moving, but lo and behold a video pops up of Khan, Jones, the sister Sledge AND Gloria Gaynor AND The Pointer Sisters all performing during the Etam fashion show, all on one stage---together.
*beep...beep...* Okay, I'm back, but seriously, that's an weapon of mass diva destruction right there and it warrants some heart palpitations. What you'll be treated to after the cut is an explosion of classic hits, lingerie (skip to about 2:17 to get to the singing), a 63-year-old Grace Jones in a leotard proving milk does a body good, and a rousing finale of "We Are Family" where all the bold and fabulous soul sistas join forces and let the decibel levels reach a new high.
