Whitney Houston Celebrates Gospel
Whitney Houston made a remarkable comeback in singing at BET’s Yearly Celebration of Gospel event. Audience were in awe as she stepped into the stage and sang the R. Kelly written and produced anthem “I Look to You” with the phenomenal Kim Burrel.
It was a miracle and a touching moment as the music diva is showing signs that she is firmly fighting her drug addiction problem.
Her powerful voice made her the most awarded female artist of all time with 2 Emmy Awards, 6 Grammy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards, and listed as one of The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time by the Rolling Stone magazine. Nobody can’t forget her song “I will always Love you” that made her the best-selling single artist in music history and made her an icon in all generation.
Houston began her singing career at being a junior gospel choir member at her New Jersey church. She had a quite impressive training ground and an excellent mentors like her mother Cissy Houston and a family friend Aretha Franklin.
This African-American woman is not just an R&B, Pop and gospel singer but a renowned actress and a stunning fashion model as well. “The Bodyguard” movie is her first starring role that had been a box-office movie and garnered awards and commendations from different award-giving bodies.
As a fashion model, Whitney only gained a few pounds after her announced drug addiction but still in shape whenever she was dressed in church suits or an evening dress to attend an event. It was amazing to know that though her family and relatives are really ballooning in figure whenever they reach their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s ages, maybe she won’t be wearing plus size dresses even if she reached that age.
You can see her blooming look and startling performance during the Celebration Of Gospel which will be aired on BET on Sunday, January 30 at 8 p.m.
