Celebrities - Whitney Houston

Whitney Elizabeth Houston (born August 9, 1963) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, record producer, film producer, and former fashion model. Houston rose to international fame in the mid-1980s and her crossover success opened doors for many other African American women to find success pop music and movies. She has been referred to as "The Voice", and is known for her "powerful, penetrating pop-gospel voice". In the 1980s, Houston was one of the first African American female artists to receive heavy rotation on MTV in its early years, even when the network was leaning more towards a white male rock dominated format. Her debut album became the biggest selling debut album of all time for a solo artist, selling over 25 million worldwide, her follow up album was the first album by a female artist to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200, and she holds a record seven consecutive #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Houston continued her success into the 1990s, starting with the box office hit The Bodyguard. The soundtrack to the movie is the best-selling soundtrack of all time, and the single "I Will Always Love You" the best-selling non-charity single of all time, biggest selling song in history by a female artist and the 3rd best-selling song in the history of music. She continued the decade with other successful and culturally significant projects before returning to the studio in 1998. Houston was named the 8th most successful artist of the 1990s by Billboard Magazine. She is the fourth best-selling female recording artist in the U.S according to the RIAA, and is "The Most Awarded Female Artist of All Time" according to the Guinness Book of World Records. After Houston married former R&B singer Bobby Brown at the height of her career, rumors of drug abuse started to affect her popularity. This led to a decline in her public image and her album sales dropped during years 2000 to 2006, with stories regularly appearing in the tabloid press. After successful trips to rehab, Houston divorced Brown and gained custody of their only daughter in 2006. She has once again professionally paired with her mentor Clive Davis for the first time since 1998. The duo is aiming to release Houston's new album sometime in the first part of 2009.

4 shanequia, your comments about high notes and being high were hilariously spot on! -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on April 16, 2015, 1:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I'm sorry, I just can't make myself pretend that the human race just lost some vitally important and seminally life-changing historical figure like the rest of America seems to be doing. A druggie is a druggie whether they can sing or not. Just look at some of the comments below from years ago--this is what people thought about Whitney before she died and they suddenly felt morally obligated to deify her. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on February 18, 2012, 7:37 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
6 She was one of the greatest singers ever. I only wish she had stayed off the drugs which unfortunately ruined such an amazing voice. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on February 17, 2012, 10:15 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Regardless on how she died, she'll be missed. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on February 15, 2012, 12:19 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 If drugs are the cause of death, then Whitney is sadly yet another celebrity who threw her life away. As for Tony Bennett, legalizing drugs will make them easier to obtain, thus INCREASING the number of deaths from drug abuse. Cigarettes are legal, yet look how many people die from them each year. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2012, 12:33 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
9 R.I.P. Whitney. One of the greatest vocals of all time. This is why doing drugs is bad. I don't agree at all with Tony Bennett saying if drugs were legal she'd still be alive. Wrong. Legalizing drugs doesn't make someone no longer be addicted to them. I get some of the arguments for legalizing drugs, but this is one I don't agree with. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on February 13, 2012, 2:49 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

11 Well unfortunately bad choices have claimed another talent. Houston's earlier stuff was pretty good. Here's hoping she can finally rest in peace. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on February 11, 2012, 10:39 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 What a tragedy! She had such a beautiful voice before those demons destroyed it- and may have destroyed HER. I pray she's at peace and that her shattered mother and daughter will find the strength to cope with what's happened. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 11, 2012, 7:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 She's a great singer and a not too shabby actress. Too bad she had to ruin it with drugs like so many celebs do. -- Submitted By: (Melissa) on December 7, 2009, 4:36 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 She hit the high notes all right. She hit the notes while high. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on September 21, 2009, 4:57 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Thanks, shanequia. I'll never forget seeing that pic at those awards and thinking 'Tina Turner's not looking so good these days'- then finding out it was Miss Houston! Yikes! And to think, not only does Tina Turner look better than Whitney these days, she also has saved her voice much better- same with Dolly Parton who originated 'I'll Always Love You!' and can still hit those high notes! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 6, 2009, 4:58 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Amen Pelijoro, you always right on track with your comments with what you be saying and all. i liked Whitney too before she show up in public with what look like she be eating a powdered donut and got it in her nostril. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on August 5, 2009, 5:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I always liked that song she sung during the Olympics "One Moment in Time"! Fantastic- and sad that it seems her voice has been ruined to ever sing that song again! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 29, 2009, 2:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Her 1991 Super Bowl "Star Spangled Banner" still sends chills up my spine. Magnificent. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on July 19, 2009, 10:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 I've always liked her music. she has such a beautiful voice! It's too bad that she has had so many problems. one interesting thing about that song she recorded called "I will always love you"- it was originally written and recorded by Dolly Parton! (I've heard both versions, and I like them both the same.) I think that she BTF when she married Bobby Brown. I haven't heard any new music from her in years! I wonder if she still has the same voice that she did before. -- Submitted By: (Riley2009) on April 17, 2009, 12:31 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
