The Ultimate Whitney Houston Playlist
By Brooks Welch

August 9, 2023 marks the what would’ve been the 60th birthday of Whitney Houston. It’s undisputed that she is one of the greatest voices in music history. I mean, who else could make the Star Spangled Banner a #1 Pop Hit? No one can carry a ballad like Whitney did.

According to IMDb, Houston left behind six Grammy awards, seven American Music Awards, six NAACP awards, a Primetime Emmy, seven Soul Train Awards, and a BET Lifetime Achievement Award amongst many others. If there was a global superlative for Best Smile, she would’ve won that too. Outside of making music, she was an accomplished actress in the classic films Rodger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, The Bodyguard, The Preacher’s Wife, and Waiting to Exhale (which gave us the bop “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)”). She even produced two of Disney’s most popular coming-of-age films, The Cheetah Girls and The Princess Diaries.

To her friends, family, and true fans, she will always be remembered as beautiful, lively, inspiring and a true gift. 

Pick up a comb or hair brush and belt your heart out in honor of Whitney!
