This is the continuation of my Whitney Houston tribute. The first article covered her later years. Now we will slowly work our way backward through time, and get into the movie years. As she was conquering the music world, Whitney moved on to the silver screen. She started off with a bang, starring in The Bodyguard with Kevin Costner. The movie and its soundtrack was a huge success. She then starred in Waiting to Exhale with Angela Bassett. That movie was also successful, debuting at number one, and eventually grossing $81.45 million. Finally, she starred in 1996’s The Preacher’s Wife with Denzel Washington, and directed by Penny Marshall.
All of Whitney’s movies did well. But, she also performed many songs for each film with the legendary soundtrack of The Bodyguard being the most successful.
Now, let’s work our way backward, beginning with…
