No song released
Online PR News – 24-February-2012 – – Los Angeles, Ca. - February 24, 2012 How will Whitney Houston be remembered? Fans from Youtube to the Ukraine have assembled video tributes and musical celebrations. Few conversations deviate from one central point, hers was one of the greatest voices to ever step on stage. With her passing, a new generation of virtual listeners who don't own a CD much less have ever seen a cassette, are understanding what their parents mean by "real music." Even the hardest hip-hopper or tattooed rocker finds it hard to swallow when listening to Houston sing the National Anthem - that lump in the throat is called real music.
Houston's journey towards recording songs that stand the test of time began with her debut album release in 1985. Then Arista Records president Clive Davis saw something rare, that intangible tangible, that thing that can't be touched but everyone can feel. Davis proceeded to connect Houston with proven writers, singers, and producers who could firmly elevate her creative profile. One of his first moves was to get Houston in the studio with Jermaine Jackson.
Jermaine, the older brother of Michael and Janet, brought to a young Houston the sense of credibility all young artists seek. They went on to record memorable duets and share a lifetime friendship. Their inseparable professional connection has birthed online rumors of a dedication record released by Jackson on Houston's behalf. This was reported in error as Jackson did not authorize the release of such a recording.
