Whitney Elizabeth Houston was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time.
Whitney Houston was born on August 9, 1963 in what was then a middle-income neighborhood in Newark, New Jersey.
She was the daughter of Army serviceman and entertainment executive John Russell Houston, Jr. and gospel singer Emily “Cissy” Houston. Her elder brother Michael is a singer, and her elder half-brother is former basketball player Gary Garland. Her parents were both African American.
Houston is one of pop music’s best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170–200 million records sold worldwide. She released seven studio albums and two soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum, or gold certification. Houston’s crossover appeal on the popular music charts, as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for “How Will I Know”, influenced several African American women artists who follow in her footsteps.
Throughout the 1980s, Houston was romantically linked to American football star Randall Cunningham and actor Eddie Murphy. She then met R&B singer Bobby Brown at the 1989 Soul Train Music Awards. After a three-year courtship, the two were married on July 18, 1992.On March 4, 1993, Houston gave birth to their daughter Bobbi Kristina, the couple’s only child.

The cause of death was not immediately known. Local police said there were “no obvious signs of criminal intent”.
