Today The Praise 1300 Family is taking time today to remember one of the greatest singers of all time on her birthday today..The Late Ms Whitney Houston

Whitney’s death affected us all — she was an icon that many of us admired — and it’s hard not to focus on her tragic end. But Whitney had an incredible life that needs to be remembered with love and enthusiasm.

Whitney was one of music’s best-selling artists of all time, selling an estimated 170-200 million records. Astounding. To this day, she is the only person to ever release seven consecutive songs to reach the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Nobody has come close to touching that.

She also had an amazing film career, starring in movies like Waiting To Exhale and, of course,The Bodyguard. With her iconic turn in the latter, Whitney also composed the soundtrack; “I Will Always Love You,” her seminal hit, is the best-selling song by a woman in music history. The soundtrack made Whitney the first artist to sell over a million copies of an album within a week. Additionally, the album was the #4 best-selling of all time; Whitney’s on that list as the top female artist.
