More about the show

 The music industry’s first ever Pop Princes: Whitney Houston, who we also know endearingly as Nippy, was the first artist to have seven consecutive #1 hits and the first woman to enter the Billboard 200 at #1 with her album, Whitney.  Coming from a family of heavy hitters like Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick, this Diva was destined to be the voice in music we’d never be able to forget.
