Keri Hilson and Nicki Minaj will join Katy Perry, Sugarland and Paramore as this year’s “VH1 Divas,” but they’ll taking some of the focus off themselves, singing for the military through a partnership with the USO.
Perry, Sugarland, Hilson and Minaj will perform for thousands of men and women in uniform at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, while Paramore will visit Marines, soldiers, airmen, sailors, coastguardsmen and reservists at a military base in the Middle East, reports the Associated Press. Hilson called it an incredible opportunity.
“VH1 Divas Salute The Troops” premieres Dec. 5 on VH1. It will be broadcast internationally by the Armed Forces Network.
