Whitney Houston The Legend

Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston! We’ve all heard her music, heard her story, and acknowledged her as a legend.

Without a doubt this woman was one of the greatest singers of all time.

She sold 200 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling music artists we’ve ever seen. Her music was the epitome of R&B with a side of, and with a voice like hers, there is no wonder why she was so special.

Whitney Elizabeth Houston was born in Newark, New Jersey on August 9, 1963. Her mother, Cissy

Houston, was a soul and gospel singer who went on to win two Grammy’s for her solo work. It is safe to say Whitney was destined to be great with a mother like Cissy as well as a cousin like Dionne Warwick and a godmother like Aretha Franklin.

Whitney Houston’s Walk Into Stardom

Whitney Houston

Whitney kicked off her singing career by singing in a church choir in her hometown as a child. A lot of great singers start in the church, which always produce the most soulful of singers. By the time Whitney was 15 she was singing backup vocals with her mother, Cissy.

Did you know that she did the backup vocals for Chaka Khan’s world famous “I’m Every Woman!” Talk about legendary.

Whitney also took on modeling as a side hustle and made it to the cover of Seventeen magazine by the age of 18. This made her one of the first African-American females to be featured on the cover of this publication.

After being a featured vocalist and backup singer for years, young Whitney finally got her big break in 1983 when she drew the attention of major record labels.

In that same year Whitney Houston signed with Arista Records

Whitney Houston

whom she actually stayed with through her whole career. In 1985 she released her self titled, debut album and it became the biggest-selling album released by a debut artist. In the first year the album sold over 3 million copies within the United States then went on to sell 25 million copies worldwide.

Her second album, titled “Whitney,” was released in 1987 which hosted one of her most famous songs, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The song went on to win Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the

1987 Grammy Awards. Whitney reached the peak of her career in 1992, once the movie “the Bodyguard” was released. Although her acting was great, it was really the soundtrack that made her one of the greatest of all time. Whitney covered Dolly Patton’s “I Will Always Love You” and the song topped the charts for months! Eventually, the song sold 44 million copies worldwide. To this day, the song is an absolute classic and people continue to sing it.

Then Whitney Married Bobby Brown

That same year, Whitney married Bobby Brown who was a former member of New Edition. Unfortunately, the couple began to use drugs together and rumors spread about how difficult it was to work with the great singer. This really damaged her career and for years Whitney was unfocused, leaving her fans worried and wanting more music.

It wasn’t until 2009 when she made a huge comeback with a new album titled “I Look To You.” The album was absolutely beautiful, showing her fans she was still the same powerful Whitney we all knew and loved. Although, in live performances you could tell her voice was a bit weakened presumably from the years of drug abuse.

In 2012, Whitney Houston sadly passed, due to an accidental drowning in a Beverley Hills hotel. Another

great artist gone, but certainly not forgotten. We will always remember Whitney Houston not only for her talent and achievements but also for her dedication and true passion for great music.
