Whitney Houston Hits
From her first two albums and beyond, Whitney Houston became one of the most successful female singers of all time. She has won seven Grammy Awards and been nominated 26 times.
In 1989 Whitney met R&B singer Bobby Brown at the Soul Train Music Awards. Bobby Brown was also a successful performer, having had several hits with his group New Edition and later as a solo artist. Bobby and Whitney married on July 18, 1992 on the grounds of Whitney's home in Mendham, New Jersey. Later in 1993 they welcomed daughter Bobby Kristina Houston Brown.
Following her marriage to Bobby Brown, Houston achieved phenomenal success with her the movie The Bodyguard in 1992. The movie's original soundtrack won the 1994 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and became the world's best-selling soundtrack of all time. Its single, "I Will Always Love You," became one of the best-selling singles in music history.
Much to the chagrin of Whitney's fans, soon after her success with The Bodyguard, rumors that the singer was using drugs with her husband circulated in celebrity magazines like People magazine, Us Weekly magazine and OK! magazine after she missed performances, airport security discovered marijuana in her luggage and appeared to sustain a dramatic weight loss. By 2000 she was again on the cover of People magazine, this time under the headline, "Whitney's Troubled Times."
