Synopsis
Whitney Houston (1963--2012) was a superstar. Few in the world of show business reach the career heights that she attained with what seemed such ease. Her megastardom peaked in 1992 with the release of the hit movie The Bodyguard and the international Number One hit "I Will Always Love You." The movie soundtrack still stands as one of the bestselling albums of all time. She won six Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, thirty Billboard Music Awards, and twenty-two American Music Awards, and amassed a vast fortune. Her death has shocked the entertainment world and her fans. Whitney Houston! traces the life of this American icon. Here is her childhood in Newark, New Jersey, growing up in a family with a strong musical legacy. Her mother, Cissy, sang professionally with such stars as Aretha Franklin. Her cousin was Dionne Warwick. Share the joy as Whitney signs with Arista Records and the legendary Clive Davis and becomes an international star. Here superstar biographer Mark Bego offers a unique look at her family and immense talent, the secrets behind her years of erratic behavior, the truth about her tumultuous marriage to bad boy Bobby Brown, her mother's desperate attempt to control her, her dynamic final film role in Sparkle (which will be released posthumously), and the events that led up to her tragic death. Whitney Houston! will stand as a singular tribute to, and a revealing look at, one of the great superstars of our time.

Whitney Houston was one of the biggest and most influential stars of the past thirty years. She was a number one recording star, a film star, and a concert superstar. Her list of chart-topping songs, including �Saving All My Love for You,� �I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me),� and �I Will Always Love You,� provided the soundtrack for a generation. And her films, including The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale, and The Preacher�s Wife, turned her into a global sensation. Her sudden death at forty-eight shocked the world. Whitney was born into a family of music royalty. Her mother is Cissy Houston, the star of The Sweet Inspirations, and her cousin is the incomparable Dionne Warwick. She was destined for success, and at the hands of music industry wizard Clive Davis, she was groomed for superstardom. However, something went wrong along the way. Her fall from grace became a nightmare of pills, drugs, and liquor that eroded her health, her looks, and her once-glorious voice. Bego takes us on Whitney�s journey from background singer, to model, to Grammy-winning recording artist, to movie star. He also follows her slow decline, beginning with her controversial marriage to singer Bobby Brown. In February 2012. Whitney Houston checked into the Beverly Hilton Hotel for a round of parties and the annual Grammy Awards. Hours prior to Clive Davis�s pre-Grammy party, Whitney Houston was found dead. She had died as dramatically as she had lived. There is no story quite like that of Whitney Houston! Book jacket.
