Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)
was an American singer, actress, producer and model. Houston was the
most awarded female act of all time, according to Guinness World Records. Her list of awards includes Emmy Awards, Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, among a total of career awards as of 2010. Houston was also one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide. Inspired by prominent soul singers in her family, including her mother Cissy Houston, cousins Dionne Warwick and Dee Dee Warwick, and her godmother Aretha Franklin, Houston began singing with New Jersey church's junior gospel choir at age 11. After she began performing alongside her mother in night clubs in the New York City area, she was discovered by Arista Records label head Clive Davis.
Houston released seven studio albums and three movie soundtrack albums,
all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold
certification. Houston was the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard
Hot 100 hits ("Saving All My Love for You", "How Will I Know",
"Greatest Love of All", "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)",
"Didn't We Almost Have It All", "So Emotional" and "Where Do Broken
Hearts Go"). She was the second artist behind Elton John and the only female artist to have two number-one Top Billboard 200 Album awards (formerly "Top Pop Album") on the Billboard magazine year-end charts. Houston's 1985 debut album Whitney Houston, became the best-selling debut album by a female act at the time of its release. The album was named Rolling Stone's best album of 1986, and was ranked at number 254 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Her second studio album Whitney (1987), became the first album by a female artist to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know",influenced several African-American female artists to follow in her footsteps.

    To each their own, is why the radio here and in many countries have different frequencies, the numbers on the dial either the one with push buttons or the one you see moving left and right on the dial that brings in all the news and music to our listening audience! Dolly also sings and one of the songs was written by Dolly and sung by Whitney; each to their own, we all have favorites and some like them all!

    She will be alive in many hearts with good memories of a talent that had blessed many and many more with ears that listen to her voice that is so special. Many have taken her style to heart and many over the oceans of life as well will miss her and her presence..
