Whitney Houston’s Historic ‘All At Once’ Performance At Sanremo Festival

Whitney Houston - All At Once European 7-inch vinyl single front cover

Whitney’s “All At Once” was released as a European single in March 1985. Her performance of this song in 1987 became a historic moment – she was the first artist ever to be asked to perform an encore at Italy’s Sanremo Music Festival. After Whitney sang “All At Once” to a standing ovation, the host declared, “A voice like that comes once in a generation.”

The audience shouted for an encore performance, so Whitney sang it twice!
