Whitney was a huge superstar in the 1980’s and was always likely to find herself a singer with her mother being the gospel singer Cissy Houston, her cousin Burt Bacharach’s favourite singer from the 1960’s, Dionne Warwick and her godmother the legendary Aretha Franklin. She started singing publicly at just 5-years old when she sang gospel songs with her mother at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey.
