Divas for Life is a benefit concert that features 6 sensational jazz vocalists who sing from their hearts to help provide life-affirming support for people living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
DIVAS For Life all started in the of Spring 2000 when Vancouver Lifestyles magazine profiled six top female vocalists: Laura Crema, Dee Daniels, Karin Plato, Kate Hammett-Vaughan, Stevie Vallance and Tammy Weis. During the photo shoot, the six women talked about the importance of using what they know best - their voices - to help raise money for people living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. They chose The Vancouver Friends For Life Society, an organization dedicated to supporting over 1300 people living with the daily challenges of such illnesses.
Stevie Vallance donated her time to produce the concert through her company H'art Creations Inc. In a whirlwind, The Vogue Theatre was booked, sponsors signed on, the event was promoted, and tickets went on sale. The hard work was worth it. The concert was sold out, with people scrambling to buy 'standing room only' tickets. And it didn't stop there...
CBC Radio recorded the concert, and H'art Creations negotiated a national distribution deal with Fustion 3 for the Cd, DIVAS For Life - Live At The Vogue! The Cd was released to rave reviews, in a series of sold out concerts, as part of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
On Valentine's Day, 2002, the packed Vogue Theatre's audience was dazzled, once again, by 'Divas for Love, Divas For Life:02', a celebration of love and hope, featuring Lee Aaron, Christine Duncan, Kate Hammett-Vaughan, Angela Kelman, Karin Plato and Stevie Vallance.
DIVAS For Life raised over $75,000 for Friends For Life.
