No matter what, her music will always be remember and the messages she passed through.
1. She included family with work
Whitney Houston made sure that everyone who worked with her was family. They managed her, sang with her, wrote songs with her, and they were even her bodyguards.
Whitney never wanted to be away from home. She enjoyed doing things around the house and most of all, spending time with her husband and family. She always wanted to live the ‘normal life’ with a family.
Her father, John Houston gave her the nickname, ‘Nippy’ when she was a baby. It is related to a cartoon character who was always getting in trouble. As a baby, Whitney kept kicking off her winter blanket, her father kept covering her again and that’s when he though, “Nippy, seldom right’
Whitney was the first female artist to have twi diamond album. In January 1994, her album ‘Whitney Houston’ and ‘The Bodyguard Soundtrack’ had hit platinum over 10 times. Whitney’s albums have also spent over 51 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts – that is more than any other female artist.
5. She was a model
Believe it or not, Whitney Houston didn’t always dream of being a singer. In her teenage years, she dreamt of becoming a model and at one point, she was able to hit the cover of Seventeen magazine!
There is no doubt that her music is something that signifies her true colours – despite her drug-downfall, her music has always been the one thing that expressed what she was going through from the inside.
