Whitney Houston's extraordinary voice made her a star. Her beauty, style, and spirit made her an icon.
In this magnificent collection, more than twenty of the world's top photographers have joined together to celebrate the brilliant woman they were privileged to capture through their camera lenses. These photographs are a testament to Whitney's dazzling physical presence, but they also remind us that she was a multidimensional woman: powerful, vulnerable, commanding, enchanting, thoughtful, bewitching . . . and absolutely unforgettable--a singer whose smile was as bright and true as her voice.
Curated by renowned photographer Randee St. Nicholas, these images, which span thirty years of Whitney Houston's career, are a fitting tribute to a legendary recording artist, style icon, and devoted mother, who touched millions of lives by doing what she loved.
