Sure, Whitney Houston, 21, is gorgeous (she’s been a model since she was 16). Sure, she comes from a talented family (her mother is the well-known soul singer Cissy Houston and her first cousin is Dionne Warwick). Sure, she can act (she’s already appeared on TV’s “Gimme a Break” and “As the World Turns”). But can Whitney Houston sing? Of course she can.
First mention in Newsweek (June 10, 1985)
