Whitney Houston was remembered on both sides of the Atlantic on Sunday night at both the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles and the Baftas in London. Jennifer Hudson performed a fitting tribute with the track ‘I Will Always Love You’, the Dolly Parton song that Houston made famous on the soundtrack to The Bodyguard in which Whitney starred.
Poor old Whitney Houston. It’s been a really rough week for her. Things started badly on Tuesday when she had to postpone the opening of the European leg of her World Tour due to an upper respiratory infection. Naturally, the French fans were disappointed but things were looking better for the UK with the tour scheduled to start in Manchester on Thursday. However, these dates in Manchester and Glasgow have also been postponed so more fans here will have to wait until May and June to see her. To make matters worse, there have then been allegations of drugs use, which according to Whitney are “ridiculous”. We hope she gets better soon as she has such a great voice and is so very talented. In fact, she’s just arrived in the UK and says she feels great! Here are the remaining tour dates for UK fans:Tuesday 13th April Birmingham LG Arena
Wednesday 14th April Nottingham Trent FM Arena

Whitney Houston will release ‘Whitney Houston One Wish – The Holiday Album’ on 18 of November.
The album contains 11 tracks, including a version of ‘Little Drummer Boy’ on which Whitney is joined by her daughter, Bobbi Kristina. The album was co-produced by Mervyn Warren and Whitney Houston.
You can expect to hear numbers like ‘The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)’, ‘Cantique De Noel (O Holy Night)’, ‘One Wish (For Christmas)’, ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, ‘O Come O Come Emanuel’, ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’, ‘The First Noel’ and et cetera.
Whitney Houston recently got her brand new song ‘Whatcha Lookin’ At’ released. It may or may not be a Whitney’s single but whatever it is, the song will obviously be a taste of things to come from the diva and will most likely be part of the untitled album, that’s due out in mid September.
The song was leaked over New York radio, on the 10th of July. Nobody knows who leaked it.
Whitney has been the subject of gossip and rumors as her career slid. Her rocky marriage to Bobby Brown has been fodder for tabloids, and there are persistent rumors of drug abuse. Besides that, the press has been hounding her over her massive loss of weight.
A while back, Whitney told Yahoo that she doesn’t feel a need to top herself with her new material. She says she just thinks about doing quality work.
