The highlights of the dvd in my opinion are the amazing "One Moment In Time at the grammy's", the historic "The Star Spangled Banner at Superbowl XXV" and Whitney's great & long interview where she talks about several important moments in her career. There are so many videos on it, you can never be bored. It has also so many great performances like "Why Does It Hurt So Bad on MTV movie awards", her first ever TV performance singing "Home" and I could go on forever!!
IMO, anybody who's a fan of Whitney Houston or anyone who simply is a little bit interested in her should get the dvd. It's full of hours of entertainement. The sound & picture are also great (but of course the sound in a performance like "Home in 1985" doesn't sound as good as for example "My Love is Your Love live in germany 1999" obviously because it's much older, but it still sounds great).
In conclusion, I have no complaints & I think that this is one of the best dvds I own. Everyone should get it & I really hope Whitney releases other music dvds soon!
I don't like the photo shoot segment as she looks a bit too "diva-like", toying around in a sort of childish manner, for a woman her age. Don't like the diva pose... but I love the music! Get this!
Ps. They could have included the Thunderpuss dance version of "It's Not Right But It's OK" but I won't hold it against them. Hehe.
It opens up with the excellent "You Give Good Love" and through the songs presented here you can watch Whitney grow up. You can also see her star status rise to new heights as Whitney becomes a movie star with "The Bodyguard". There are definity shifts in her fame and style, and these can be witnessed here. For example, the first shift is felt upon hearing (and seeing) the first few bars of "I'm Your Baby Tonight"... But then the musical risks and independent style she was taking with "I'm Your Baby Tonight" are superseded by her mega success with "The Bodyguard", where she shouts full-blown corporate love songs.
There's a whole lot of slick urbane songs and videos here, Whitney has not always been musically adventurous, but there are interesting songs here and there, nearly all dealing with affairs of the heart and their ensuing complications. We see that her fame has heavily relied on the power of her clear, steely voice.
The best Special Feature is Whitney's first live TV performance of "Home" on The Merv Griffin Show. It shows a side of Whitney rarely seen- nervous, naive, unaware of her future, yet a genuine revelation to those watching- Merv introduces an young unknown and after the performance knows that he has just introduced a superstar...Her voice is in perfect form here, singing an exceptional song in an exceptional performance.
Other great live performances include "Didn't We Almost Have it All", "One Moment in Time" at the Grammys and "Why Does it Hurt So Bad?", the latter a fine performance though Whitney's voice is a bit rough and she sweats profusely.Read more ›

A must have DVD.
I am a great fan of Whitney however I did have some reservation about this DVD as I generally prefer theatre performances rather than studio videos. Read more
If you love Whitney and appreciate her vocal range and style this is the DVD for you
Her will live on by her music
This is great to have if you are a collector. It has most of her classic videos on it. It is missing a few videos and is lacking many live performances. Read morePublished on Jan. 13 2013 by K. Wright
You only need to buy ONE of these to be happy. From what I call, these two dvds are identical.Published on May 24 2012 by Jaay Tee

Whitney has a great voice, but when it comes to music videos, she should get some advice from Paula Abdul(genious video maker), her videos simply sux.Published on Oct. 2 2003 by S. Quinto
