2)Whitney Houston has often been referred to as The Voice. But when looking through the pages of Whitney: Tribute to an Icon, one can imagine another apt title for the late superstar: The Face.

That face--the flawless skin, the deep enchanting brown eyes, the smile that captivated a generation--mesmerizes in full color in this over-sized book of pictures meticulously assembled by renowned photographer Randee St Nicholas. Through a combination of images of live performances, behind the scenes shots, and promotional photos from key eras in her career, Whitney Houston's energy leaps off each page.

But the book does more than simply catalog her undeniable physical beauty. Whitney Houston was more than just a stunning face, and even more than just a tremendous voice. We see in this tome glimpses of the complex woman who took those God-given gifts and enraptured the world with her charisma, fortitude, vulnerability, nerve, and effervescent spirit. Readers will find themselves breathlessly turning each high-quality glossy page in a quest to better understand this dynamic woman through the images captured in the work of 22 world-class photographers. Most of all, her humanity shines through, especially in the final photograph of her gazing joyfully toward her only daughter, Bobbi Kristina. In all, the book tells a story that transcends the visual. Even in a soundless medium, each picture sings.

4)I have followed Whitney Houston's career for most of my life. When I was just 11 years old I was instantly mesmerized by her voice & entranced by her beauty. Whitney was able to command an audience no matter the venue & this book is a testament to that fact. The photographers tell a beautiful love story about a remarkable woman. Page by page as the photos took my breath away, I was flooded with memories that have been burned in my soul by her music. Each pose holds a melody & each subtle gesture has a groove. Tribute to an Icon is a crown jewel for the collection of a real Whitney fan!
