New Whitney Houston Album Confirmed / Set For November Release

Published: Tuesday 16th Sep 2014 by Sam

The Voice.

In life, it’s a title Whitney Houston wore without competition and since her passing a tag she continues to embody.

The diva’s longtime mentor Clive Davis has made it duty to ensure the latter remains unchanged. For, today, the industry great stopped by the Today Show to announce the release of a brand new Houston album.

Details below…

Christened Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances, the CD/DVD set will tribute the many iconic live moments from the late, great vocalist – who died aged 48 in 2012.

Due on November 10th, the LP – according to Davis – has the blessing of the star’s family, who have been assisting with the tracklist selection. In total, the set will comprise of 16 songs and 19 video performances.

Check out the announcement video below…

We are entirely “here” for this.

Beyond our stance that it should almost be compulsory to celebrate Whitney’s other-worldy voice, we also feel the release worthwhile because it’ll help introduce the greatness that IS her gift to a new generation of singers.

And while the circumstances surrounding Houston’s death still sadden us, there is light to be sourced in our belief that there are few greater gifts that being able to continue to touch the world though physically gone from it.

Long live The Voice!

      No lies detected. Whitney fans pretend that Whitney is all that and etc when she really was nothing but Clive’s lip singing cracked out puppet. She couldn’t hold up next to the true powerhouses like Chaka, Patti, and Aretha. Her voice was cracking in 94 and at times she sounded like a fog horn… especially when she used to lip sing that I’m Every Woman bridge.

    • Alan September 16, 2014

      Child please who the f*** wants to read your comment than tell us all u was a crack addict. No one wants to hear ur sad s*** or ur struggles. Shame u dint die of an overdose u crettin

  2. let’s be real September 16, 2014

    cannot wait! whitney had something a lot of the stand still singers didnt and thats Stage PRESENCE her live game especially in her prime was unmatched

    • Suicide Blonde September 16, 2014

      Exactly, she was unique, she had soul, she really felt when she was singing a song, she didn’t sing just to give an outstanding vocal performance with high notes BUT without emotions like other singers like Mariah Carey or Celine Dion.

      • Dontdoit September 16, 2014

        The insecurity is real. Let Whitney have her shine without mentioning the other two.

    • Royalkev September 16, 2014

      So true! Whitney’s stage presence was just as awesome as her voice. She wasn’t a “performer”, but she still had the ability to wow everyone in such a fascinating way.

  3. Eloviano September 16, 2014

    If it has her family’s blessings,then I’m here for it. Can’t wait. R.I.P Nippy, gone too soon.

    This is absolutely great ! This will definitely show why Whitney ‘ voice was God given. I would also love it if they released a posthumous album of Whitney ‘ unreleased tracks from the 80s & 90s along with some from 2000s like Michael Jackson. Except don’t have any EDM producers get on it ! Unless they still give us demos like MJ’s Xscape album.

    • Jansel September 16, 2014

      If these songs were recorded in the early 90’s or something but not anything in the 00’s. What god giveth god taketh away, and that’s what he did to Whiteny, her voice was gone. Let have goodbye

      • Truth Teller September 16, 2014

        and her voice was still better than urs and YOU FAV

      • Jansel September 16, 2014

        You a damn lie! My face Cassie is actually a good singer…..she just had her nodes removed b4 her career so she can’t stress her voice so trust and believe. But anywho God took that voice for a reason. She didn’t use her GIFT of the Holy Spirit correctly. I’m so ashamed

    • Truth Teller September 16, 2014

      I would think that MOST of Whitney’s career was using her GREAT VOICE, so ur the LIAR. Probably one of those hating lambs who supports a lip synching fake.

      Whitney blessed us with her voice given to her by GOD which is why she was so successful with half the output of ur FAVS.

      And Cassie?? God must not have blessed her too much since most don’t know who she is; which is someone unimportant, and nowhere near the colossal TALENT AND IMPACT of Whitney.

      Now run along continue to feel SOME TYPE OF WAY inside the greatness of THE VOICE

  5. UGH September 16, 2014

    Ummmm O.K.

    “They only miss you when you’re gone…”

  6. Suicide Blonde September 16, 2014

    I like the idea of a live album based on her best performances, this is not a Michael Jackson type of post-morthem album.

  7. JOHNVIDAL September 16, 2014

    So they are following the Michael Jackson route, a new album every year.
    The idea is good because she was just a beast on stage. I mean, 80s Whitney Houston was the best live singer in popular music history. I have no doubt. You may argue about the best singer, But the best singer at live performances? Whitney, no doubt.
    It´s so unfair that we don´t have quality recordings of sooo many shows from the 80s. We have to endure the low quality recordings on youtube (still spectacular even in bad quality). They should have known better.

      And if, by chance, that special place
      That you’ve been dreaming of.

    • coolness September 16, 2014

      Was just about to say her performance at Arista’s 15th Anniversary is my all-time favourite!!! The way she took a four minute song and spread out to over seven minutes was astounding! This particular live showing was flaw-free. From her beauty to her vocals and powerful stage presence, she really had it all. R.I.P

    • JOHNVIDAL September 16, 2014

      It´s far from her best though! Her concerts during her two or three tours during the 80s were the real timeless and epic slayage. And that´s what we need to have in good quality (I suppose it won´t happen though).

  9. Monica Stan September 16, 2014

    I absolutely love this woman. I’m definitely picking up a copy.

  10. Lindsay Lohan September 16, 2014

    I hope they remaster the quality of the videos, because if it’s just a copy-paste, it’s nothing YouTube doesn’t already have.
    I love Whitney and I acknowledge her unparalelled legacy, but I really believe, and I mean this with no disrespect, her death in 2012 didn’t take anything away from her music. It’s really unfortunate for Bobbi and her family but music-wise, I think she has had given her all by the time she breathed her last breath. RIP Whitney Houston.

    • Truth Teller September 16, 2014

      Her death took away the greatest voice of her generation, and to many, of all time. There is no female artist out there that had the impact this woman had with such a short list of a catalog on such a global platform.

      You need to re-visit Whitney’s career honey…

  15. coolness September 16, 2014

    I’m actually kind of excited for this. Whitney was one of those singers whose live performances actually overshadowed their corresponding studio recordings. She never sang a song the same way twice. I guess it had a lot to do with her being somewhat stifled by Clive Davis to cater to a Pop audience so she couldn’t go all out in the studio. However, once she hit that stage, all of that went out the window and she would just stand there with this small frame and belt out notes like nobody’s business. It reached the point where I would look up YouTube performances from her, convert them to MP3 files and completely forget about the original songs.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 16, 2014

      Yeah I´ve done the same many times. It´s heaven in mp3 format 🙂

  16. SC_ September 16, 2014

    Ummm Whitney doesn’t need to be introduced to a new generation. Everyone knows her and will continue to know her. She will FOREVER be the standard for female vocalists. FOREVER!

  17. Mark111 September 16, 2014

    Yes! I know some will say “let these stars rest”, but a LIVE album should had BEEN out in 94. I love LIVE albums, because only a few can do it.

    • janet. September 16, 2014

      Janet fat lip singing ass nor Rihanna goat farm-libs can either.

  18. Royalkev September 16, 2014

    Can’t wait to get a copy! What Whitney was able to do live was special and I’m always going to cherish her musical gifts. Whitney was the very best voice I’ve ever heard in my life – she set the bar! Period. I don’t know what kind of vocal standards the world would have if Whitney never existed! I thank God for her time here. May she rest in peace.

    • Suicide Blonde September 16, 2014

      Madonna’s standards, lmao.

    She does need to be re-introduced. My nephew was a senior in high school and his whole class was wondering why te world was making such a big deal about her death. They kept saying she isn’t relevant. He had to explain that it was like of Lady Gaga died. Such a sad comparison. When 106 and park played her 92 Supwrbowl performance, the kids were stunned because they had never heard her sing!
