In honor of the amazing musician and beautiful inspiration that will always be Whitney Houston, here are Girl Group’s favorite Whitney songs and why.
“At the Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, Georgia, they have a laser show on the side of the mountain. Which in the 90s, concluded with “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”… a laser show version featuring Whitney Houston as an astronaut, dancing with the alien. Anybody who was anybody went to the laser show.” – Emily Morris
“I really liked Mike. It was Homecoming. I didn’t always make the best decisions. But this song seemed perfect. And even though he didn’t appreciate me singing it at him, it was neat to think that I knew what love felt like for the first time.” – Aydrea Walden
“My very first audition. Third grade. The teacher said we were having a new chorus and did anyone want to sing for the chorus. I was the shyest kid but I really wanted to be in the chorus. So I timidly raised my hand and I sang this song.” – Jennifer Meyer
“Wow! You sang that song?? That’s like the biggest, beltiest song of them all.” – Aydrea Walden
“Haha, yeah! I’m pretty sure our graduation song was ‘The Greatest Love of All,’ too.” – Jennifer Meyer
“I had really debilitating stage fright as a kid. I started singing Where Do Broken Hearts Go. My sister started crying because she had never heard me sing like that before.” – Rachna Khatau
