When you hear the title “The Voice” there really is only one name that comes (or that should come to mind). Whitney Elizabeth Houston. By the late-‘00s, Whitney’s music career had all but fizzled as her personal life and struggles became more prevalent than her professional career.
But in 2009, Whitney changed that and came back with her first album in 7 years. “I Look To You” is a complicated era, as while it was the first time Whitney was back to recording in years, it was painfully obvious that things were not like how they once were (at least in terms of vocal ability and performance stamina). But on the other hand, the album itself was actually great, and she sounded better than she had in years.
This album also is significant for being Houston’s final album before her tragic death in 2012. So tonight, let’s take a look back into the era that was deemed as Houston’s “comeback”… “I Look To You”.
