We’ll Always Love You: The Best Whitney Houston Music Videos
Effortless talent, beauty and intelligence to match, Whitney Houston repped for every black woman in America during the 80s and 90s. In our minds, Houston was our best friend, our big sister, even our favorite auntie, who would tell it like it is and flash a big smile and a joke to make you feel better afterward.
Dubbed “The Voice,” Houston’s iconic stature still cannot be matched after her passing. Her music videos had the best fashion, the best storylines, and of course the best singing. As we reflect on the second anniversary of her death, we remember the 15 best Whitney Houston music videos.
