It must be years since I saw The Bodyguard or listened to Whitney Houston and my DVD has actually never been opened. So when I saw on TikTock that the album was one of the top ten all time best sellers I went back and had a listen.
Names like the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are obvious contenders for anyone over 50 like me, but I han’t realised Whitney was up there.
Take a listen – over 1 billion views!
What I hear, listening again after so many years, is the combination of power and emotion – you get her soul with all its beauty and fragility.
Who would make your top ten of all time?
