It has been ten years since we lost the great Whitney Houston. In her all too short 48 years, Whitney soared from the church choir to the top of the Billboard charts. And not just once. She famously dominated the mid-1980s with seven #1 hit singles in a row. Those were followed by several more in the 1990s.

Her life tragically cut short by the demons of addiction, Whitney Houston’s true legacy is that of a musical inspiration. Let’s look back on Whitney at her best with three of those seven consecutive chart-toppers: “How Will I Know” from her 1985 debut album, then “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “So Emotional” from her 1987 follow-up.

  • How Will I Know (1985)

  • I Wanna Dance With Somebody (1987)
