The week brought with it the third anniversary of the untimely passing of pop icon Whitney Houston. Lauded as a stentorian vocal performer whose prowess knew few (if any) rivals, the diva’s 30 year career saw her become the standard for all singers to follow. From her self-titled debut album (released on this day in 1985) to 2009’s ‘I Look To You,‘ Houston sailed to the top of the charts with a discography of hits that includes many of the most memorable numbers imparted to pop music over the last three decades.
Interestingly, many people do not know that a great number of said memorable tunes lining her discography are, in fact, remakes. Borrowed from the likes of Diana Ross, Donnie Hathaway, Dolly Parton, The Isley Brothers, and many lesser known acts, Whitney’s catalog shines with a collage of covers that were done so well most assumed her versions were the originals.
Since February 2012 fans, celebrities, and more commemorate the anniversary of her death by sharing remakes of her top hits. But, now we’re coming to you – That Grape Juice faithful – to ask:
What’s Whitney Houston’s best remake (of other artists)?
