Video: Remembering Whitney Houston (1963-2012)

As the world reacts in shock to the passing of the Queen of Pop, Whitney Houston, let’s take a look at Whitney’s storied career.

Whitney Houston started singing in her church’s gospel choir at the age of 11. She was naturally gifted and came from a family of  prominent soul singers, including mother Cissey Houston and cousin, Dionne Warwick. She was later discovered by Arista Records label head Clive Davis, who became a mentor and a father figure to young Whitney.

Whitney reigned in the 80′s and 90′s, producing hit after hit, but as the year’s went on her personal life became the story. She was marred with drug addiction and a public troubled relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown. But in the end Whitney will be remembered for her legendary voice and a illustrious career in which she sold more than 170 million albums, singles and videos, and received seven straight Billboard No. 1 hits in the 1980s, including “Saving All My Love for You,” “How Will I Know,” “Greatest Love of All” and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”.

As of 2010, Guinness World Records list Houston as the most awarded female artist of all time, with 2 Emmy Awards, 6 Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards.

She also had one of the biggest-selling albums of all time in the soundtrack for “The Bodyguard”.  She also starred in the film, as well as the hit movie Waiting to Exhale.
