This summer, TV One will debut a new reality series strictly based on women in music.

“R&B Divas” documents the real-life stories of five multi-talented singers including Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Monifah Carter, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt.

The ladies have seen it all – ups, downs, success, and failures. As veterans in the industry, they know what they need to take their careers to the next level. Equipped with wisdom and a few years under their belts, these ladies are ready to make moves in music no one has ever seen before.

These friends come together, at the instigation of Faith Evans, to produce a charity album inspired by her friend, Whitney Houston. In honor of the late singer, proceeds from the album will benefit the Whitney E. Houston Academy of Creative and Performing Arts, an institution that Houston attended, located in her hometown of East Orange, NJ. At the same time, they are all juggling myriad personal challenges and responsibilities in addition to making music – including raising families.

The ladies end up forming a strong sisterhood.

“R&B Divas” is an eight-episode one-hour series that is filmed primarily in Atlanta.

It debuts Aug. 20 on TV One.
