Book Description

Sept. 30 2010
By the best selling author of 'Michael Jackson: For The Record' Whitney Houston exploded on the music scene in 1985. Her self-titled album quickly became the best selling debut by a female artist, her second album was the first by a female artist to debut at no.1 in the States, and when she had seven consecutive chart toppers on Billboard's Hot 100, she smashed a record set by the Beatles and the Bee Gees. Whitney's first film, The Bodyguard, grossed over $410 million, and the lead single from the soundtrack - a cover of Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You - topped charts all over the world, and is one of the best selling singles of all-time. Marriage, motherhood and difficult times followed, but Whitney made a successful comeback in 2009 when I LOOK TO YOU, her first studio album for six years, debuted at no.1 in the States. This is the story of Whitney and her music...

5.0 out of 5 stars great read and very detailed March 12 2012
By mistermaxxx08 - Published on Amazon.com
this is the reason why Whitney Houston was the Queen of Pop, it was her music and her ground breaking Instrument that touched and reached so many lives over 3 decades. this book does a fantastic job at just talking about her in the studio and the songs that were known and those that weren't. very detailed and great Music Geeks like myself who care about the Artist and always remember the Artistic statement and merits of that as the true center of it all. Whitney Houston was truly a one of a Kind Great Artist and this Book does her incredible Career Justice. RIP and there will never be another Her as a Artist. one of a kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan's delight June 1 2012
By Phillip O. - Published on Amazon.com
If you are a Whitney fan or just intrigued by statistics, this is the book for you! An encyclopedic reference of every song she ever recorded or performed in concerts (even including back-up vocals), the book offers interesting details about the songs, where they originated and how they were selected (did you know that "How Will I Know" was originally written for Janet Jackson?). There are many songs here that I never knew she performed and with the availability of YouTube, you can find recordings for most of them. The "Albums" section includes dates of release, units sold, track listings, etc. and includes UK editions. I also loved the "Concerts" sections which lists every concert she ever performed. I was able to locate the date of the concert I attended way back in 1987 in Birmingham, Alabama. A great reference and highly recommended.
