R&B music has indeed made a strong move in the right direction this year with the return of some of the industry’s biggest names, voices and musicians.

This year, we saw Faith Evans lead an army of 90s female singers such as Nicci Gilbert (of Brownstone), Syleena Johnson, Monifah and KeKe Wyatt back into the forefront of all real music fans’ playlists with the hit TV One reality series and accompanying album “R&B Divas.” The breakthrough series set new records for the network and launched each of the ladies back to the top of the charts as well.

Of course, things won’t end there as Faith Evans reveals in a recent interview with SoulTrain.com where she talks about the overwhelming response to the show, the vision and the album as well as an attempt to put an end to those swirling rumors of how “R&B Divas” cast mate and co-executive producer Nicci Gilbert will – or won’t – be returning to the show next season.

Here’s an excerpt via SoulTrain.com – –

Faith Evans speaks on how “R&B Divas” became the success that it is now.

“First by the grace of God. I was pleasantly surprised. I am happy that it went as well as it did. We didn’t know that it would be. We were trying to do something differently than what others were tuning into in terms of reality TV.”

Faith Evans chimes in on the rumors of Nicci Gilbert’s departure.

“As far as I know we got the same type of deal. I don’t think they would want to get rid of Nicci first of all because she is the reason why we are all part of the show.”
