Since Pop icon Whitney Houston‘s untimely death in 2012, her best friend and rumored lesbian lover – Robyn Crawford – has remained relatively mum. Opting not to go on a high profile media tour at the time (unlike many of the diva’s closest friends and family), Crawford’s ready to change her tune courtesy of a forthcoming memoir.
Description of the book:
Whitney Houston is as big a superstar as the music business has ever known. She exploded on the scene in 1985 with her debut album and spent the next two decades dominating the charts and capturing the hearts of fans around the world. One person was there by her side through it all.
Since Whitney’s death in 2012, that trusted and loyal friend, Robyn Crawford, has stayed out of the limelight and held the great joys, wild adventures, and hard truths of her life with Whitney close to her heart. In A Song for You, Robyn breaks her silence to share the moving and often complicated story of her life and relationship with Whitney.
With warmth, candor, and an impressive recall of detail, Robyn gives readers insight into Whitney’s life and career. She traces the years from when she and Whitney first met as teenagers in the 1980s to the recording of Whitney’s first album and the infinite success that followed. From countless sold-out world tours to her epic rendition of the US national anthem to the set of The Bodyguard, her tempestuous marriage, and the birth of her only child, Robyn was there.
Deeply personal and heartfelt, A Song for You is the vital, honest, and previously untold story that provides an understanding of the complex life of Whitney Houston. Finally, the person who knew her best sets the record straight.
Set to be released on November 5, the book – available for pre-order on Google Books here – comes as Crawford’s highly anticipated recount of her relationship with the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer. After declining to appear in the ‘Whitney’ documentary as well as its unrelated predecessor, ‘Whitney: Can I Be Me?,’ Robyn – who was long alleged to be romantically involved with the music superstar – is delivering her say after Houston’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, revealed the diva was bisexual in his 2017-released memoir, ‘Every Little Step: My Story.’
