Sony Music Entertainment Australia is proud to announce Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances, set for release on Friday November 14th, 2014. The six-time Grammy-award winning singer's first ever live album features the most memorable live performances from her storied career. The album will be available as a single disc audio CD and also as a single disc DVD, which includes stunning videos of Houston's most unforgettable performances, reinforcing her as one of the greatest vocalists of all time. Both titles have undergone state of the art restoration and remastering and will also be available digitally on November 14th.
Both the CD and DVD are also available for digital and physical pre-order now. Fans are also able to pre-order the CD and the DVD from the Whitney Houston official fansite (http://smarturl.it/WH_Live_d2c) to get their names included on an exclusive poster. A limited edition fan bundle, which includes a purple vinyl, is offered on the site as well.
Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances will take fans through the remarkable arc of Houston's career, from her national network television debut appearance on The Merv Griffin Show in 1983 as a prodigal teenager, where she sang -Home' from The Wiz, to her emotional 2009 performance of -I Didn't Know My Own Strength' on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The producer of the CD and the DVD is the five-time Grammy- award winner Clive Davis. Mr. Davis states, 'Whitney's Live CD and DVD will stun everyone. It definitely shows why she was totally unique, absolutely in the first rank of all time. For me, it's been very emotional. The set vividly confirms that there really was no one like her. It also makes the tragedy of losing her so young so very painful. Watching the DVD is a mesmerizing experience. Her amazing vocals and the songs that have stood the test of time combine to truly hypnotize over and over."
On behalf of The Whitney Houston Estate, Patricia Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law and President of the estate states, 'Whitney truly had a matchless voice that not only made you feel good but made you feel alive. The Whitney Houston Estate has worked closely with Clive and Sony Legacy to make this the best album possible to honour Whitney's memory. It certainly was a bittersweet endeavour for all, but one we hope appeals to her legions of fans worldwide."
With six Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards (to date the most AMAs ever won by a female performer), and 170 million albums, singles and videos sold worldwide, Whitney Houston was a true pop culture icon and Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances only further demonstrates her prodigious talent, which will keep her and her magic remembered forever.
