Overview

Whitney Houston’s voice. A voice of raw power and angelic sweetness, tremendous range, and incredible control. When the world first heard it back in 1984, a new chapter was written in the annals of popular music. Author Narada Michael Walden sat in the cockpit alongside Whitney while her career skyrocketed, producing many of the hits that today comprise her musical legacy—among them, “How Will I Know,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” “Where Do Broken Hearts Go,” and “One Moment in Time.” His intimate stories of their unforgettable times together, both inside and outside the recording studio, draw a portrait of a smart, funny, compassionate woman whose striking physical beauty was matched by her inner strength and justifiable self-confidence. As the cousin of Dionne Warwick and daughter of Cissy Houston, Whitney was able to draw on her lineage to make an unprecedented impact. And, at the same time, she and Narada enjoyed a rock-solid bond, fostered through their shared musical and spiritual backgrounds. It is for Whitney’s legion of loving fans—several thousand of whom crowded outside the church where Narada attended her funeral service in February 2012—that he is now telling the story of the fabulously gifted artist and caring, charismatic woman he knew during her peak years. She remains the only artist to have seven consecutive U.S. chart-topping singles, and is the most awarded female act of all time.

Narada Michael Walden (with Richard Buskin) has written a truly unique, engaging and first hand look into the crucial early career of one of the greatest superstars ever- Whitney Houston. After the mind boggling avalanche of scrutiny Ms. Houston received regarding her sad and personal demons, it is refreshing and inspiring to read about all the blood, sweat, tears, laughter, joy and unbridled energy that Whitney possessed through her miraculous voice. That miracle has been captured for prosperity by the musical genius of Narada Walden and his brilliant music team. Thanks to the foresight of Whitney's mom, Gerry Griffith and the genius of Clive Davis,Whitney's gift to the world will never be forgotten. I for one want to keep these inspiring stories that Narada has written in my thoughts whenever I am fortunate enough to hear the voice of Whitney Houston. An exceptional read..
