Today I feature my all-time favorite singer ever, Whitney Houston. Also known as, “The Voice”, Every female singer wants to be her. She is well known for her vocal power, control, range and coloratura soprano voice. They don’t want just the success she has found in the business but rather the sheer power and range of her voice. We won’t argue; if everyone sang like her we’d listen to more chick music. She was singing steamy songs and dancing seductively. But even more than that, it’s her rambunctious nature that appeals to us so much. Plus, she admits that the only addiction she can’t seem to shake off is making love.
Whitney Houston is the one of the world’s best singers, she can beat anyone in the world, many tried to impersonate and try sound like her voice.. but no one, so far can out beat the soulful performances and stage presence of the DIVA. At one point chosen by People magazine as one of the “50 Most Beautiful People” in the world, we certainly won’t complain. The signs of aging aren’t showing and you’d never know she had children by looking at her figure. In fact, the lady with the sweet mocha skin is adamant that she will never ever be fat. That’s the spirit!..
My Top 5 Most Favorite Whitney Song:
1. I Believe in you and Me – I actually have this song in my mp3 player, and I listen to this almost everyday..Geez! This song is the official sountrack of the movie “The Preacher’s Wife”.
2. Saving all my Love for you – In the song, Houston sings about a love affair with a married man, and “saving all her love for him”. Internationally, the single was received well in most areas, most notably becoming Houston’s first number one in the United Kingdom. “Saving All My Love for You” won the 1986 Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and the American Music Award for Favorite R&B/Soul Video.

3. Run to you – the fourth single released from the The Bodyguard soundtrack album, was written by Jud Friedman and Allan Rich. Originally intended to be a break-up song, the song was approved by the production and stars. However, a month later, the director of “The Bodyguard” (Mick Jackson) called, saying he liked the song so much, but he’d rather have it be a love song. The entire song was rewritten except for the title. (Watch the Video after the jump.. Click read in full article)
4. Greatest Love of All – I used to sing this song when I was a little, and guess what? I always sing this song in my music class. The fourth and final single released from Whitney Houston’s self-titled first studio album, Whitney Houston, originally recorded (as “The Greatest Love of All”) by George Benson for the 1977 Muhammad Ali film The Greatest. Houston’s version of the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three weeks. It was Houston’s longest-running number-one single at the time, and her second longest to date.
5. Where Do Broken Hearts Go – the fourth single from Whitney Houston’s second album, Whitney. was written by Frank Wildhorn and Chuck Jackson. Originally, Houston had been against the entire recording, not liking the song, feeling it was too ordinary and there was no special message to convey. However, Arista Records CEO Clive Davis told Houston the song would go straight to number one if she recorded it, so she agreed.
