Whitney, Cissy & Narada During First Album Sessions

Whitney Houston, Cissy Houston and Narada Michael Walden during recording session for Whitney Houston album

Here’s an early photo of Whitney with her mom, Cissy Houston, and producer Narada Michael Walden. This was taken around 1983-84 during the recording of Whitney’s first album, titled Whitney Houston. Narada produced (and co-wrote) the track “How Will I Know,” which was released as a single in November 1985 and became her second #1 Hot 100 single. The song was originally written for Janet Jackson, but she passed on it and Whitney did it with altered lyrics and production from Narada.
