We will always love her. Acclaimed biographer Mark Bego tells the life story of Whitney Houston, from her stellar rise to her shocking fall. Growing up in Newark, NJ, in a family that included mom Cissy Houston and cousin Dionne Warwick, Whitney took the family legacy to even greater heights.
Bego charts Whitney’s triumphs—signing to Clive Davis’s Arista Records, achieving movie stardom in The Bodyguard, scoring a No. 1 hit single and winning a slew of awards. But he doesn’t shy away from her setbacks, including her fraught marriage to Bobby Brown and the drug problems that stalled her career. Ultimately, though, this biography is a tribute to Whitney’s talent. And that roof-raising voice will be remembered as long as ears can hear.
