Top 20 Fave Whitney Houston hits
August was a great month. Not only did my kiddo turn one on the 26th, but one of my fave R&B sngers ever, Whitney Houston, released her long-awaited comeback album I Look To You.
The world knows of Ms. Whitney's trials and tribulations; they were splashed all over the internet and the tabloids for the last eight years or so. But to an 80's teen like myself who grew up on her music, she was the Grammy-winning, platinum-selling diva of her day.
I can still recall singing into a hairbrush along to Saving All My Love For You while pining dramatically after my first teenage crush; declaring my independence with her cover of Chaka Khan's I'm Every Woman; and singing at the top of my voice along with my girls to Exhale (Shoop Shoop!).
I can't wait to make some new memories off Whitney's new album, and as a tribute to her and her wonderful comeback, I set myself the onerous task of listing my fave 20 Whit hits. I've interspersed them with images of her studio album covers to date. Here goes....
