Whitney Houston's greatest hits

The late Whitney Houston, born to R&B/gospel singer Cissy Houston, was seemingly destined for musical greatness since her earliest days. She was a member of the New Hope Baptist Junior Choir in Newark, New Jersey, and became a powerful soloist by age 11. As the goddaughter of singing legend Aretha Franklin, the young Whitney was singing backup for artists like Chaka Khan and Lou Rawls while still a teenager. 

Although her career was mired in drugs and a deeply troubled marriage, Houston remains one of the most successful female singers in the history of modern music.

Among her greatest hits are:

  • You Give Good Love (1984)
  • So Emotional (1987)
  • Didn't We Almost Have it All (1987)
  • I Will Always Love You (1992)
  • I'm Every Woman (1993)
  • Exhale (1995)
  • When You Believe (1998)
  • It's Not Right But it's Okay (1999)
