Watch Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances
- 1 hr 42 min
With a bold, confident voice that commanded listeners to take notice and a body of work boasting some of the most upbeat and romantic recordings of the past three decades, Whitney Houston (1963-2012) has long solidified her place as one of the 20th century's most significant performers. But her ability to stun live audiences with her powerful vocal gifts has never been documented on an official release - until now. Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances will capture decades of live recordings and unforgettable memories of a true music legend. From the moment Clive Davis introduced a 19-year-old Houston on The Merv Griffin Show, audiences knew this was more than your average talented voice. Whitney exuded both girlish charm and womanly confidence throughout her discography, from the dance-pop delights of How Will I Know, So Emotional and I Wanna Dance WIth Somebody (Who Loves Me) to heart-stopping ballads like Greatest Love of All, I Have Nothing and her immortal 1992 cover of Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You, which propelled the soundtrack to her film debut, The Bodyguard, to all-time best-seller status. Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances includes performances from three decades of stellar live appearances, from talk-shows (The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Late Show with David Letterman, The Oprah Winfrey Show) to awards ceremonies - and all the extra-special performances in between, from Whitney's definite performance of The Star-Spangled Banner at Super Bowl XXV in 1991 to exhilarating versions of I Will Always Love You and I'm Every Woman from 1994's Concert For A New South Africa. This release will, for the first time, illuminate a brilliant career as seen under dozens of stage lights and remind audiences of Whitney's truly original voice - often imitated but certainly never surpassed.
