Whitney Houston will show off her new and cleaned up image to the world this summer (04), when she goes on tour with Natalie Cole and DIONNE WARWICK.

Cole admits that the main reason she agreed to go on the tour is because of her close relationship with Houston, who has successfully completed the 30-day chaperone period of her drug rehabilitation.

She says, "It starts in Germany in July. We're going to have... a great, great time. It's going to be fun.

"I said 'yes' because that's my buddy. I've always thought of Whitney as my little sister. I've known her since she was 19, and... I feel really good that when they asked who she would want to be on the show with her, she said me.

"She's doing really great. She's a strong woman and she has a great desire to really get healthy and get well, so I'm just really happy for her."
