Whitney Houston, an African American legend, born on August 9,1963, was destined for her singing career. Her mother (Cissy Houston), cousin (Dionne Warwick), and godmother (Aretha Franklin) were all well known singers. Singing was in her blood. By the time she was 15, she had started trying to find a record deal by singing with her mother. She was then sought after by a photographer who was stunned by her natural beauty. This led her to become a model. Later on, she was signed by a record deal at the age of 19, transforming her from a gospel singer to a pop singer.
Houston’s career took off from there. She earned several awards for her unbelievable voice, made many debuts on TV shows, and flourished in the music industry.
