9780062238399 The definitive account of Whitney Houstonâ€™s astonishing life, ground-breaking career, and tragic death â€” complete with never-before-seen photographs â€” from the only one who truly knows the story behind the headlines: her mother, Cissy Houston. Cissy has said little publicly about Whitneyâ€™s heart-breaking death. Now, for the first time, she opens up and shares the unbelievable story of her daughterâ€™s life, as well as her own, and addresses Whitneyâ€™s brightest and darkest moments. A legendary Grammy Awardâ€“winning gospel singer in her own right, Cissy Houston shows how the lessons from her own musical journey helped to shape Whitneyâ€™s career â€” from teaching Whitney to use her voice, to keeping her level-headed throughout her meteoric rise to fame. With candor and respect, she sets the record straight about Whitney, exploring both her turbulent marriage and her misunderstood struggles with drug abuse. Cissy goes behind the tabloid headlines to show fans around the world the true, human side of a strong, successful â€” yet flawed â€” musical icon who died much too young.
