I'm gonna definately get this and add it to my cd collection.

I was disappointed with the production quality and lack of creativity with the "I Look To You" video. I was expecting another well produced video like the "I Believe In You And Me." Because the ILTY video was so poor and the song was so beautiful, many felt that was a wasted launch. There are many more outstanding unrelease tracks on the CD that deserve a well produced video. Perhaps pull a more edgy r&b track with a youthful urban video to gain airplay on MTV and BET. That would rekindle the interest in the project from a different audience who has yet to buy the CD. This is such a good CD, there has to be more videos produced!!!

i cannot believe how much she has changed! you go girl!

Great comments from many of you. Hopefully that's why the release date has been pushed to the end of January. I've been hearing/reading about unseen performances being on the DVD now? I hope that's true. Otherwise, what's the point?? Somebody made a great point about getting interviews from all the artists influenced by Whitney and I'm sure they'd do it in a heartbeat! Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey (!), Celine Dion, Brandy, Toni Braxton, and on and on and on. Now THAT would be something. I remember the first time I heard "The Voice" when I was 13 ("You Give Good Love" on the radio) and it stopped me in my tracks. I NEEDED to know who was singing that song and with that "voice." It was like nothing I had ever heard before and probably will never hear again in my lifetime. I've been a die-hard fan ever since and I wish Arista had polled the fans on facebook or on this site to find out what we want on this 25th anniversary edition of the debut of Whitney Houston. The possibilities would have been endless, from interviews, never-before-seen live performances in HD, her Grammy performances (by my count she opened the show FOUR times -- has anybody else opened the Grammy Awards telecast that many times??), and on and on and on. I hope Arista heeds the advice of the fans and goes back to the drawing board with this release. I'd wait MONTHS to buy a CD/DVD package with things I can't already find on YouTube. Oh, and what about a retrospective photo collage through years? Maybe a collage of mastheads from her four No. 1 songs from Billboard Magazine from this album? A poster? Commentary from Whitney and Clive about those songs. Again, possibilities are endless. Is the marketing department at Arista awake?!?
