Whitney Houston Made Her TV Debut On ‘The Merv Griffin Show’


On June 23, 1983 Clive Davis debuted Whitney on The Merv Griffin Show which aired that week from The Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. Merv stated at the time: “You won’t forget that name — Whitney Houston!” Here is a rare photo of Whitney with Clive and Merv at an event from that period.
