Following the tragic and sudden death of Whitney Houston on 11thFebruary author James Robert Parish takes a look at the amazing career of the superstar and the events that lead to a life of drug and alcohol abuse. Whitney Houston burst onto the international music scene in 1985 with her début album which won a Grammy Award for the single “Saving All My Love For You”. Since then, the acclaimed artist has released only a limited amount of new material, yet her pre-eminence in the industry and her enormous popularity with music fans has been unwavering. In this comprehensive biography, James Robert Parish reflects on the extraordinary journey which has taken the controversial personality from a problematic childhood in a broken New Jersey home, to becoming the talented protégée of powerful Arista producer Clive Davis, to the height of her diva days mired with peculiar behaviour and drug abuse. Parish explains how the shy, pretty young girl from a devoutly religious background turned into the subject of lurid tabloid gossip, much of it concerning her turbulent relationship with Bobby Brown.
