Whitney's Life in celebration
Born & Raised
Whitney Houston was born in the year 1963 in the state of New Jersey, to her mother Cissy Houston, her dad John Russell Houston, Jr who was an entertainment executive at the time.
They resided in New Jersey for many years, and were into the world of Gospel music in a major way, and happened to have family ties with other well known music artists we all know of today, and this all helped to set the eventual stage of Whitney Houston’s amazing singing career.
Her Career's Spark
Her wonder years began with a spark of excitement as a gospel singer at the age of 11, following her mother Cissy, into the Gospel music arena, who truly encouraged her a great deal to sing. As a gospel singing family, with her two cousins, Dionne Warwick, and Dee Dee Warwick leading the way, as well as the world renowned Aretha Franklin her actual godmother, Whitney was destined to become a great singer and powerful presence in the music industry.
As long as she remained motivated to take on her challenges that surely were to come, she would make her mark and presence felt with such a wonderful and amazing talented voice. In the early 1980’s she began attracting a great deal of big names in the business back then, and even worked as a fashion model once.
Her back up vocal ability graced the presence of Paul Jabara’s album, as the lead vocalist back in the year 1993; it was titled “Paul Jabara & friends”. This new showing of her talent was beginning to take, and make major headlines which helps fuel her new found singing career, and landed her even better deals shortly after.
1st Record Deal
1983 She was offered many record deals, but in any event she accepted one deal at the young age of 20, she was signed to Arista Records. This pretty much sealed her fate to eventually become what we all have seen throughout the years to be.
Whitney Houston’s awesome music career was surely filled with many twists and turns of personal issues, but ultimately she was one of the most amazing singers ever known to mankind. Her beautiful voluptuous voice is one of a kind, and quite frankly she's achieved levels of success in her short 48 years in life, that most human beings can never ever live up to over taking. Now, it was record producer Clive Davis, who noticed her talents most, and was lucky enough to give her this shot of a life time at Arista Records, back in 1983.
