NEW YORK, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, has announced plans to release Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances, on Monday November 10th. The six-time Grammy-award winning singer’s first-ever live album features the most memorable live performances from her storied career. The album will also be available as a CD/DVD, which includes stunning videos of Houston’s most unforgettable performances, reinforcing her as one of the greatest vocalists of all time. Both the audio and visual content have undergone state-of-the-art restoration and remastering.

Fans are now able to pre-order the CD/DVD from the Whitney Houston official fansite (http://smarturl.it/WH_Live_d2c) to get their names included on an exclusive poster. A limited edition fan bundle, which includes a purple vinyl, is offered on the site as well. Both the CD/DVD and the CD are also available for pre-order on Amazon (http://smarturl.it/WH_LiveDVD_amzn) and iTunes (http://smarturl.it/WH_LiveDVD_itunes)

Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances will take listeners through the remarkable arc of Houston’s career, from her national network television debut appearance on The Merv Griffin Show in 1983 as a prodigious teenager, where she sang “Home” from The Wiz, to her emotional 2009 performance of “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

The producer of the CD and the DVD is the five-time Grammy-award winner Clive Davis. Mr. Davis states, “Whitney’s Live CD/DVD will stun everyone.  It definitely shows why she was totally unique, absolutely in the first rank of all time.  For me, it’s been very emotional. The set vividly confirms that there really was no one like her.  It also makes the tragedy of losing her so young so very painful.  Watching the DVD is a mesmerizing experience.  Her amazing vocals and the songs that have stood the test of time combine to truly hypnotize over and over.”

On behalf of The Whitney Houston Estate, Patricia Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and President of the estate states, “Whitney truly had a matchless voice that not only made you feel good but made you feel alive.  The Whitney Houston Estate has worked closely with Clive and Sony Legacy to make this the best album possible to honor Whitney’s memory.  It certainly was a bittersweet endeavor for all but one we hope appeals to her legions of fans worldwide.”

With six Grammy Awards, two Emmy Awards, 16 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards (to date the most AMAs ever won by a female performer), and 170 million albums, singles and videos sold worldwide, Whitney Houston was a true pop culture icon and Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances only further demonstrates her prodigious talent, which will keep her and her magic remembered forever.

With a bold, confident voice that commanded listeners to take notice and a body of work boasting some of the most upbeat and romantic recordings of the past three decades, Whitney Houston (1963-2012) has long solidified her place as one of the 20th century s most significant performers. But her ability to stun live audiences with her powerful vocal gifts has never been documented on an official release - until now. Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances will capture decades of live recordings and unforgettable memories of a true music legend.

From the moment Clive Davis introduced a 19-year-old Houston on The Merv Griffin Show, audiences knew this was more than your average talented voice.

Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances includes that seminal performance, plus others from three decades of stellar live appearances, from talk-shows (The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Oprah Winfrey Show) to awards ceremonies like the American Music Awards - and all the extra-special performances in between including 1994 s Concert For A New South Africa.

This CD/DVD package will, for the first time, illuminate a brilliant career as seen under dozens of stage lights and remind audiences of Whitney s truly original voice - often imitated but certainly never surpassed.
