Remembering Whitney - The greatest voice of our time. Share your memories at http://www.whitneyhouston.com/
In May 2003, Whitney made a guest appearance on the then hit TV show "Boston Public," playing herself and singing "Try It On My Own" from her 'Just Whitney' album. In the episode, she grants the wish of a teen boy who wants her as his date to the prom. The series starred Whitney's friend Loretta Devine, who she had worked with on "Waiting to Exhale."
Seventeen years ago today (May 16, 2000), 'Whitney: The Greatest Hits' compilation album was released. This photo was one that was considered for cover at the time, but not chosen. The album garnered four singles, including “Could I Have This Kiss Forever” with Enrique Iglesias, “If I Told You That” with George Michael, “Fine” and “Same Script, Different Cast.”

Whitney performing on the season finale of the TV show "Dancing with the Stars" in November 2009. She performed "I Wanna Dance With Somebody..." and "Million Dollar Bill."
At some point in their careers, celebrities can be followed and photographed by paparazzi and Whitney was no exception. Here pictured is a David LaChapelle photo of Whitney from the 'Greatest Hits' photo shoot where he and Whitney re-created a "paparazzi moment."
"I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," released as a single 30 years ago today, took the dance-pop giddiness of Whitney’s first album's signature smash, "How Will I Know," and raised the stakes. The song quickly shot to No. 1 -- the first of four consecutive Hot 100-toppers to be pulled from that June's sophomore LP 'Whitney' -- and has arguably endured better today than any song from her world-conquering debut.

Whitney and CeCe Winans were great friends and it was fitting that they recorded the song “Count on Me” together. It is an uplifting song about leaning on a friend for support when needed. Released in early 1996, the song was the fourth single from the soundtrack album of the motion picture Waiting to Exhale, and the second single by Whitney released from that album and its soundtrack. The video was filmed in New York City at the famed venue Webster Hall, a landmark building in the East Village which dates back to the late 1800s.
