Happy Friday Whitney Fans. Have a great weekend!

This being Super Bowl week in the United States, we want to post Whitney's incredible performance of the National Anthem. This took place in January 1991 in Tampa Stadium in Florida. The game was between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Giants and took place during the height of the Gulf War. Her performance resonated with patriotism. No one has been able to come close. The song was released as a single several times - she was the first musical act to take it to Top Ten (#6) and have it certified platinum after 9/11.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Clive Davis just revealed in an interview that he is working on a WHITNEY HOUSTON LIVE ALBUM that is set to release later this year. Get the full details of the incredible news on LATimes.com.

Whitney performed on the 42nd GRAMMY Awards held in February, 2000 - she sang "It's Not Right But It's Ok" and "I Learned From the Best" and won the GRAMMY for 'Best R&B Vocal Performance' for "It's Not Right, But It's Ok".

Whitney kicked off the 30th Annual GRAMMYs with “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” which won an award for 'Best Pop Vocal Performance' later that night. Watch her performance here!

With the GRAMMYs approaching at the end of the week, we wanted to take a look back and share some of Whitney’s memorable GRAMMY moments.

It all started with her first Grammy in 1986. She took home ‘Best Female Pop Vocal Performance’ for the single “Saving All My Love for You”. This was the first of many to come as Whitney garnered an impressive 25 GRAMMY nominations over her career.

We wanted to share a special event that is happening tonight. Whitney will be inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame. Gary and Pat Houston will be in attendance & Cissy is going to accept the honor on Whitney’s behalf. Read more about the ceremony here.
