The history of Whitney Houston
Whitney was almost destined to become a star because her mother – gospel singer Cissy Houston and her cousin Diane Warwick (who was a megastar) were both legendary singers. She was even the goddaughter of soul legend Aretha Franklin!
Whitney sang at her local Baptist Church where her mother was the choir master, WOWing the audience at an early age. She was discovered when she was 19 years of age (after being a successful teen model) and was signed by Arista Records immediately. She sang R&B, pop, ballads and gospel and had one of the most wonderful and distinctive voices in recent memory.
