Honest and heartbreaking, a mother's story of tears, joy,
and her greatest love of all—her daughter, Whitney
On the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards, the world learned of a
stunning tragedy: Whitney Houston, unquestionably one of the
most remarkable and powerful voices in all of music, had
been silenced forever. Over the weeks and months that
followed, family, friends, and fans alike tried to
understand how such a magnificent talent and beautiful soul
could have been taken so early and so unexpectedly.
Glamorous and approachable, captivating and sweet, Whitney
had long ago won the hearts of America, but in recent years
her tumultuous personal life had grabbed as many headlines
as her soaring vocal talents. Her sudden death left behind
not only a legacy of brilliance, but also painful questions
with no easy answers.
Now, for the first time, the beloved superstar's mother,
Cissy Houston—a gospel legend in her own right—relates the
full, astonishing scope of the pop icon's life and career.
From Whitney's earliest days singing in the church choir to
her rapid ascent to the pinnacles of music stardom, from her
string of number one hits to her topping the Hollywood box
office, Cissy recounts her daughter's journey to becoming
one of the most popular and successful artists of all time.
Setting the record straight, Cissy also speaks candidly
about Whitney's struggles in the limelight, revealing the
truth about her turbulent marriage to singer Bobby Brown,
her public attempts to regain her celebrated voice, and the
battle with drugs that ultimately proved too much.
In this poignant and tender tribute to her "Nippy," Cissy
summons all her strength to reveal not only Whitney the
superstar, but also Whitney as a sweet girl, a bright-eyed
young woman, and a deeply caring mother. Complete with
never-before-seen family photographs, Remembering
Whitney is an intimate, heartfelt portrait of one of
our most revered artists, from the woman who cherished her
