A virtual album of BeBe Winans’ treasured
memories of his friend and “sister,” Whitney Houston.
In the years between the first time BeBe
Winans and Whitney Houston met in 1985, to the day he delivered the tribute
that touched a watching nation at Houston’s funeral, a deep and unique
friendship bloomed and thrived. They considered each other family in the truest sense of the word.
Now this very personal collection of remembrances
offers us a seat at the table during Whitney’s most unguarded moments. Here we
see her in all her quirky, passionate, fiercely loyal glory though the eyes of
her “brother”, BeBe.
For most of her public life, Whitney Houston
was a mystery. In The Whitney I Knew, Winans
has given us a wonderful gift—the gift of understanding. From profoundly
moving personal moments to eye-opening accounts of triumph to the heartbreaking
realities that led to her ultimate defeat, the untold stories are intimately
woven throughout this book—along with online video links to behind-the-scenes
moments, highlights of her career, and never-before-seen video of Whitney. Also
included is an extensive photo section from BeBe’s personal collection.
