First Whitney Houston Live Album Set for Nov. Release
Clive Davis is putting together the CD/DVD
Fans will get to hear and see Whitney Houston live nearly three years after her death, courtesy of a new CD/DVD live album that's being released on Nov. 10.
Clive Davis, who's credited with discovering the late singer, announced the release of Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances on Tuesday's Today show.
Houston's first live album will feature 16 songs on the CD and 19 performances on the DVD. Among the performances included is her memorable rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" at the 1991 Super Bowl.
Houston's mother, Cissy, helped Davis assemble the tracks and gave him her blessing to release the album, he said on Today.
"She was without question the greatest vocalist in the world," Davis added. "It was a marvel that she was as powerful and as incredible as she was. But bittersweet that she died too young."
Davis said that the live album will help people remember Houston's impressive voice.
"This CD/DVD will establish that there was no one like her," he said on Today. "This is her legacy. This is a clarion call to the world that she was, in her time, the greatest singer."
