I Look To You Debuts at #1 - Over 300,000 sold!





(New York, NY - September 9, 2009) Proving that it was well worth the wait, Whitney Houston's long-awaited album <em>I Look To You</em> debuts at No. 1 on several charts across the world, including the US Top Albums and R&B Album charts, according to Nielsen/Soundscan. With 304,801 units sold within the first week of release in the US, this marks Whitney's biggest first week sales of her career and the best selling first week by a female artist this year! Houston's No. 1 position extends across the globe and claims the top spots in Canada, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland.

Led by the dual release of the album title track and "Million Dollar Bill" at radio, coupled with presale promotional campaigns on Amazon.com, QVC and iTunes, and a heavily promoted appearance on Good Morning America, the chart-topping result marks the official return of "The Voice."

And the critics agree! The New York Times boasts that Whitney "re-emerges with full diva qualifications," USA Today said: "Strong, confident and ready, she clearly hadn't forgotten how to sing imbuing the material with emotional power." The Washington Post cites <em>I Look To You</em> "hits all the right marks" and the Associated Press states "the pop queen still has a dazzling voice that can leave you spellbound."

The spell will continue next week when Whitney Houston launches the 24th season of The Oprah Winfrey Show with a two-day event, inclusive of what Oprah calls "the best interview I've ever done," and an emotional performance of "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" that had "grown men and women weeping in the aisles" according to Oprah’s recent Twitter post. "The Oprah Winfrey Show: Season Premiere: Oprah And Whitney Houston – The First Interview" airs Monday, September 14, 2009.  "The Oprah Winfrey Show: Season Premiere Part II: Whitney Houston's Show-Stopping Surprise" airs Tuesday, September 15, 2009 (check local listings).

Yes Whitney you deserve it. I Knew you had it in you becuase no one can just lose a voice like you have. You all the best of all times and i say that with the utmost confidence. I love you and im supporting all the way . THE BEST IS BACk

Whitney, I am so happy to know how well you are now. What I am most happy about is the way you are standing up for God to everybody and making no apologies for what God has done for you and and in you! I appreciate your spirit and witness for our Lord and saw it in your interview with Oprah. It was amazing how God used you on that program and I truly feel that you spoke to Oprah personally about the Lord more than you may realize. I believe she saw a peace and strength in you that she had maybe known before in her life but has gotten away from the last 10 years or so. It was such a blessing to hear you constantly give our Lord and Heavenly Father the Glory for saving you and bringing you back to sing for him and let him use that anointed voice once more. I am continuing to pray for you and know that you will need that prayer now more than ever because the evil in this world does not want you to share your faith with the world and tell of God's grace and goodness. I loved the part in your interview w /O when you said the reference of the Holy Ghost and spirit filled services and churches and prayers of those people. Amen Sister ,I knew exactly what you were referring to. Continually praying for you and yours, Miriam Just keep on singing!

Whitney, God has blessed you. Thank you for sharing it with us. I always know you where their just waiting for God to give you the power you needed. Remember to whom much is given much is required. I just can't stop playing Call you tonight. Love you.
