#Fact
1 When Whitney won her first Grammy Award at age 21 for the Michael Masser / Gerry Goffin song "Saving All My Love For You," the trophy was presented to her by Dionne Warwick and Julian Lennon (Shrine Auditorium / February 25, 1986).
2 Her manager and confidant was Arista Records founder & president Clive Davis.
3 Her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away at age 22 on July 26, 2015 having been in a medically induced coma for the past 6 months after being found unconscious face down in her bathtub.
4 Favourite movie was Sparkle (1976). She would later release a remake of the film in 2012 starring Houston herself and Jordan Sparks. It was also unfortunately her last film before passing away.
5 Was snubbed for a Best New Artist Grammy nomination due to the fact that she sang back up on a Jermaine Jackson single before her debut album was released. This caused much controversy since several other nominees in this category (including Led Zeppelin, Asia and The Knack) were industry veterans, as were some winners (Crosby Stills & Nash and Jody Watley).
6 Album(which is untitled) will be release in October 2006 [February 2006]
7 Currently working on her 7th studio album. The recording is set to begin in March and the release date is rumored to be in Fall of 2005. [January 2005]
8 Currently working on her 7th studio album (which is untitled at the moment.) Recording began in the summer of 2005 and the album is expected to be released by the end of 2005 or in early 2006. The album is already being highly anticipated by fans and critics, who are sure that Whitney can deliver a positive comeback. [September 2005]
9 She and her cousin Dionne Warwick were inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2013 for their services to arts and entertainment.
10 During one of her live performances she fell down a step and snapped a strap on her bra.

14 Delivered her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown via emergency Caesarean section after a 14-hour labor.
15 While Whitney scored a massive international hit with "The Greatest Love of All" (by Michael Masser & Linda Creed), she wasn't the first to record it. That distinction belongs to George Benson who introduced the song on the soundtrack of the biopic The Greatest (1977).
16 Her funeral was held at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, February 18, 2012. Following services, she was laid to rest beside her father at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey.
17 On the afternoon of February 11, 2012, Houston was found dead in her hotel room at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. She was pronounced dead at 3:55pm PST.
18 One of the last times Whitney Houston was seen on camera was at a rehearsal for Monica and Brandy's performance at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party. At the time, Brandy did not know that Houston had planned a surprise birthday party for her on the night she passed away.
19 Because she passed away the night before the "54th Grammy Awards"(2012), the host for the evening, LL Cool J, opened the show with a tribute and a prayer in her honor.

37 Her remake of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" for The Bodyguard (1992) became the topic of the NBC news show Now (1993) because it was so overplayed and people were sick of it. It was the first song ever to be the topic on a news show for being too overplayed.
38 She has a school named after her (1997) formerly Franklin School, now the Whitney E. Houston School of Creative and Performing Arts in her hometown of East Orange, New Jersey.
39 The Whitney E. Houston academy is located in her home town of East Orange, New Jersey

48 Her 1987 album "Whitney" became the first female album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts.
49 Both of her first two albums spent over 100 weeks on the UK chart. Although it had been a huge success, her 1985 debut "Whitney Houston" had actually peaked at number two. However, her 1987 album "Whitney" knocked Simple Minds' "Live in the City of Light" off number one on the chart and kept Marillion's "Clutching at Straws" at number two. It spent an impressive six consecutive weeks at the top.

#Quote
1 First of all, let's get one thing straight. Crack is cheap. I make too much money to ever smoke crack, let's get that straight, OK? We don't do crack. We don't do that. Crack is whack.
2 [on the death of Michael Jackson] I am full of grief.
3 I know that I could really kill for my daughter. I know because I'm living for her, so I'm fierce when it comes down to it. And I feel the same about my husband and my family. I'm just fiercely protective. It's like, that's my lair and nobody messes with my lair.
4 I was aware of people staring at me. No one moved. They seemed almost in trance. I just stared at the clock in the center of the church. When I finished, everyone clapped and started crying.
5 God gave me a voice to sing with, and when you have that, what other gimmick is there?"
6 I've got a good man. He takes care of me. I don't have to be scared of anything because I know he will kick every ass... disrespect him and you've got a problem.
7 I almost wish I could be more exciting, that I could match what is happening out there to me.
