Sadly, the story got even more bizarre and heartbreaking when Houston’s only child, Bobbi Kristina was also found in a similar state last January but her death came five months later.

The fairytale emergence of one of the most influential and revered musical icons of our time dimmed when the girl with a voice like no other – succumbed to the effects of dire dependency. But her legacy remains secure and unmatched thanks to the vibrant catalogue she left behind.

What better way to celebrate a life eternal – than to highlight the tunes that best capture why Whitney Houston was the greatest of them all!

 

Our all time fave! This is even more poignant when you consider that Whitney was pregnant with Bobbi Kristina at the time the video was shot

 

A gorgeous ballad that takes us back to that place…

 

No trip down memory lane is complete without this stunner! Her range was spectacular. The movie was okay but the soundtrack was all Whitney!

 

She was just getting started and anyone who saw this for the first time must’ve known she was headed to the stars and beyond. The video is old and sounds it too. But her voice still soars…
