Talented, glamorous, versatile – just a few words that could be used to describe this superstar.
She inspired a host of artists that came after her and is celebrated for possessing one of the greatest and most unmistakable voices of the 20th Century.
It is of course the late, great Whitney Houston, who would have celebrated her 51st birthday today. In her immensely successful career, the Grammy Award winning star not only showed off her vocal prowess, but also demonstrated her versatility, delivering ballads, pop hits, R&B classics and gospel songs.
In addition, the songstress broke down racial barriers when she became the first black female artist to be regularly featured on MTV, and also proved herself to be a gifted actress, starring in films including The Preacher’s Wife and of course, the 1992 hit film, The Bodyguard.
With a host of hits including I Will Always Love You, I Have Nothing and Saving All My Love For You serving as her musical legacy, the memory of Whitey Elizabeth Houston will, no doubt, live on forever. Happy birthday Whitney.
