ON THIS DAY – 9 AUGUST
Posted on: Fri 9 Aug 2019
The great singer Whitney Houston would have turned 56 today.
Her mainstream success opened the door for many other African-American female performers such as Janet Jackson and Toni Braxton.
While Houston experienced great success with hits like “Saving All My Heart For You”, it was her role in The Bodyguard with Kevin Costner that rocketed her to super-stardom.
Breakfast producer David Bucio explains more about Houston’s success which goes far beyond her signature tune “I Will Always Love You”.
