Let's Remember Whitney Houston On Her 59th birthday

One of the most loved, gifted, and legendary singers to ever live is Whitney Houston. 

Everyone who knew her and listened to her music was attracted to her by virtue of her magnetic personality and powerful voice. 

She is still difficult to imagine not being here with us.

On the day she would have turned 59, we examine Whitney Houston's evolution.

In Newark, New Jersey, on August 9, 1963, Whitney Elizabeth Houston was born to Cissy Houston and John Russell Houston Jr.

Whitney was raised in the music industry; her father was an entertainment executive and her mother was a gospel singer.

At the age of 14, Whitney joined the Michael Zager Band as a backup singer on the song "Life's a Party" to start her career in the entertainment industry.

She provided background vocals for Chaka Khan on the song "I'm Every Woman" a year later.
