SAN ANTONIO - “How Will I Know” changed the 80’s. The 90’s would not be the same without her Super Bowl performance. People loved Whitney Houston, even with all of her controversy.
Whitney won over 415 awards during her career, including six Grammys. She was the only artist to chart seven consecutive number one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Whitney Houston - How Will I Know
Houston lived a glamorous life. Her cousin was Dionne Warwick and her godmother was Aretha Franklin. Her voice was amazing, and she wasn’t shy about showing her range.

Although she didn’t have a HUGE break in film, Houston’s talent spanned even further than her vocal stylings. Anyone remember Bodyguard?!
As it sits, there is still speculation around her death, but we can all say Whitney Houston impacted the music industry, and music today wouldn’t be the same without her voice.
So R.I.P. Whitney Houston, and in your own wise words “Above all this, I wish you love.”
