Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
BeBe Winans met Whitney Houston in church 28 years ago, and they quickly developed a close bond. They considered each other family in the deepest sense of the word--hanging out in each other's homes, singing backup vocals for each other on albums, touring together. BeBe was with her when she was onstage and far from the spotlight, on the set and in the studio, through good times and the worst of times--and this very personal book takes readers inside all of those places to give a real and intimate picture of the Whitney he knew. Here readers will discover new information and insights into both Whitney's heart and her world--information that they will not find anywhere else. From profoundly moving moments to eye-opening accounts of triumph to the heart-breaking realities that led to her ultimate defeat, the stories are here, along with links to never-before-seen private videos of Whitney and a full-length photo section. In his moving tribute at her funeral, Winans reaffirmed that she will be remembered for her warm, lavish generosity, her faith, and her lighthearted humor--those positive truths that overshadow any negative missteps in recent years. "In my heart and in my mind, I have memories of so many great, great moments," he says. "She will live in our hearts forever."

Review by Library Journal (2013-03-15)

Singer and family friend Winans presents a loving and intimate portrait of the late Whitney Houston. The book is as much a meditation on Houston's life as a straight-forward biography. Winans insight fully reflects on fame, Houston's gift, and the bond they shared. He reminds listeners of the loving, silly, and struggling person behind the glittering fame. Winans is a gospel artist, and the book has some religious passages. He performs the material himself, with warmth and sincerity.

Verdict: Highly recommended to fans of Houston who are looking for a generous and intimate portrayal.

Book description

BeBe Winans met Whitney Houston in church 28 years ago, and they quickly developed a close bond. They considered each other family in the deepest sense of the word—hanging out in each other’s homes, singing backup vocals for each other on albums, touring together. BeBe was with her when she was onstage and far from the spotlight, on the set and in the studio, through good times and the worst of times—and this very personal book takes readers inside all of those places to give a real and intimate picture of the Whitney he knew.

Here readers will discover new information and insights into both Whitney’s heart and her world—information that they will not find anywhere else. From profoundly moving moments to eye-opening accounts of triumph to the heart-breaking realities that led to her ultimate defeat, the stories are here, along with links to never-before-seen private videos of Whitney and a full-length photo section. In his moving tribute at her funeral, Winans reaffirmed that she will be remembered for her warm, lavish generosity, her faith, and her lighthearted humor—those positive truths that overshadow any negative missteps in recent years. “In my heart and in my mind, I have memories of so many great, great moments,” he says. “She will live in our hearts forever.”
