Whitney Houston TributeRegular price $13.99
That voice. That incredible, otherworldly voice. Whitney Houston was born with a gift so exceptional she was convinced it came from God. This bright-eyed kid from New Jersey — daughter to acclaimed soul singer Cissy Houston, cousin to Dionne Warwick and close family friend to Aretha Franklin — seemed destined for pop music royalty, and for more than a decade she bestrode the world as one of its biggest hit makers and Hollywood box-office draws. She shattered records and broke down barriers with iconic tracks like "Saving All My Love for You" and "I Will Always Love You," kicking open the doors of pop radio and the MTV airwaves for Black women and other women of color. But even as Houston's star was still in the ascent, she faced brutal scrutiny from the media and backlash from her fans over her race, her sexuality and her drug use, while her messy marriage to R&B bad boy Bobby Brown reduced her personal struggles to a cruel punch line. Ten years on from "The Prom Queen of Soul's" tragic death at the age of 48 in February 2012. This special commemorative magazine, full of iconic images and unforgettable moments, paints an intimate moment of a talent whose work will always shine brightly.
