New Whitney Houston Book To Detail Intimate Details Of Singer's Life

A new book detailing the life of Whitney Houston and her rise to stardom is set to be released in the coming weeks, with the latest insight into the late singer's life being titled Whitney Houston: The Voice, the Music, the Inspiration.

The new book is being written by Emmy and Grammy-winning producer Narada Michael Walden, who produced many of Houston's early hits such as 'How Will I Know' and 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody.' Walden appeared at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on Wednesday (Dec 5) where he discussed the book as well as performing a few of the hits he collaborated on with Whitney.

After the show, he told Reuters, "Her death was so shocking and sudden that I wanted to create something to keep alive the beautiful aspects of her life. The media was lashing out on the addiction and ignoring her musical genius."

Whitney died nine months ago and all manner of tributes have been made in commemoration to the late singer, including a TV tribute with Jennifer Hudson, Usher and others, a greatest hits CD, a book featuring never before seen photos of the late star and a TV reality show starring her family members. 

The book will chronicle the time when Walden first met the singer when she was 13-years-old and accompanying her mother to the studio. Walden was working on a record with her mom, soul and gospel singer Cissy Houston, at the time and goes on to detail the events of her life up until her death. The book is co-written by Richard Buskin, no release date has been confirmed as of yet.
