As Grammy weekend nears, fans of the late pop legend Whitney Houston cannot help but be reminded of this unfortunate time two years ago when the music industry lost one of its most prized possessions.
But, if Clive Davis has anything to do with it, not even death itself will silence The Voice – an instrument many-a-music lover has come to love and cherish since her early 80s debut.
As such, to commemorate the memory of his industry protege, Davis recently shared plans to unveil a live CD filled with Houston’s greatest live recordings.

Clive Davis, 81, is readying his annual, must-see Grammy shindig. But, before the stars gather to celebrate the year’s best in music, the music mogul shares news on his most famous protege – Whitney Houston – who tragically passed away on Grammy weekend two years ago:
“Whitney never had a live album,” he said. “I really want everyone to know … exactly why during her time she was considered the greatest contemporary singer in the world.
“I’m going through all these recordings of her performances now, many of which I wasn’t at, such as when she was in South Africa,” said Davis. “It’s a revelation: You really hear how astonishing and powerful and compelling she was in a way that wasn’t captured on the studio albums or in her movie performances.”
Davis said he expects the album to be released this year.
