BEYOND THE HEADLINES: WHITNEY HOUSTON
Long before a television show assumed the moniker, Whitney Houston was “The Voice.” Her model looks were only surpassed by her God-given, five-octave instrument—one that needed no auto-tune, no enhancement, and one that dominated the music charts in the late 80s and early 90s. That voice would ultimately earn her multiple Grammys and sell millions of records. But by the time of her sudden and tragic death at the age of 48, her legendary instrument—along with her once angelic image—had suffered, ravaged by drugs, erratic behavior, a tumultuous marriage and years of hard living. Beyond the Headlines: Whitney Houston takes a look at the meteoric rise and tragic downfall of the legendary singer, featuring candid insights from industry insiders as well as friends and colleagues who knew and loved her.
