  Diva - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A diva is a female opera singer, but now the term also refers to a popular female performer of non-operatic works.
In order to qualify as a diva there must be one, or both, of two dominant traits present: a broad and expansive voice and/or a thoroughly captivating and commanding stage presence.
"Diva" may also have a negative connotation, as the word can imply that the star believes the only thing that matters is her person, and that everyone involved in a project must cater to her every whim.

 The DiVA Project - Development of an Electronic Publishing System
DiVA cooperation is open to all universities and publicly financed research departments in Sweden and abroad and is based on the sharing of solutions, tools, expertise and costs.
DiVA also supports publishing of documents that are not produced with templates; however, in those cases the metadata needs to be entered separately into the system using one of the DiVA Manager tools.
As the DiVA system is introduced to an organization, it is sometimes more practical to add documents to the system using some of DiVA's administrative interfaces, where metadata are typed in and the files in various formats (mostly PDF) are uploaded, before moving on to using the template-based workflow.

Seriously though, Lennox's first solo effort Diva has her more the queen of bad love and doom, and that deep timbre of a melodic voice of hers rings truly here.
Her first solo album, "Diva," arrived with the kind of jaw dropping fanfare that even those who were waiting on the fence had to admit it; Annie had the chops that lived up to the CD's title.

 divastation: welcome   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
in my opinion, to tag every wet-behind-the-ears siren "diva" is a bit generous and dilutes the original meaning of the word.
again, i don't feel that definition captures the original intent of what it is to be a diva and, in some cases, appears to be a result of the patriachy's imperative to keep strong women down.
however you define a diva, this site will focus on a panorama of female singers—from those who have proven themselves worthy to those who are just starting out on the road to the divine.
