Whitney Houston at Oprah

Oprah kicks off the 24th season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Monday, 9/14 with what she says is “the best interview” she’s ever done – her one-on-one with Whitney Houston.
The last tell-all that Whitney participated in was the infamous 2002 Diane Sawyer “crack is wack” interview that showed a feisty but ill Whitney defending her marriage and lifestyle.
Now with her marriage to Bobby Brown over (the divorce finalized in 2007) and her new album “I Look to You” entering the charts at No. 1, Whitney Houston has shed some demons and is ready to get truthful with her fans.

Before Oprah met with Whitney for their interview at the Town Hall in New York, she watched the 2002 Diane Sawyer spectacle and worried that she might find the same disconnected woman across from her the next day. So when she woke up the next morning, Oprah cleared her schedule and began to pray. She prayed to be open and non-judgmental and she prayed to be used as a vessel to help Whitney share her truth. Across town Whitney was in her own room praying for the same results.

Apparently, it worked. “There wasn’t a question that I asked that she didn’t answer thoughtfully,” Oprah told Diane Sawyer Thursday morning. And no topic was off limits, including Whitney’s drug use, her marriage to Bobby Brown, and even her fears about returning to the spotlight.

Whitney delivers one of her best vocal performances on the stripped-down, piano-driven “I Look to You.” The song pays homage to an unnamed unconditional source of support..

Whitney identified with the song’s lyrics. “I know that if I did not have faith, I would have not been able to go through life’s tribulations that I have gone through,” Whitney said in a statement read by Clive.
She added that the song, produced by Tricky Stewart and Harvey Mason, Jr., expresses everything she has wanted to say since she released her last album “Just Whitney” seven years ago.
