April 16, 1991 (30 years ago today), Whitney’s song “Miracle” was released as the third single from her I’m Your Baby Tonight album. Written and produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface, the song reached #9 on the Billboard Hot 100, #2 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and #4 on the Adult Contemporary chart.
When asked about the song, Whitney told Jet Magazine: “I think about the air we breathe, the earth we live on. I think about our children. I think about a lot of things, things God put here for us to have, things that we need and we take for granted. I think all of these things are miracles and I think we should try and take better care of them.”
