WHITNEY HOUSTON’S I LOOK TO YOU DEBUTS AT NO. 1 ACROSS THE GLOBE
WHITNEY LAUNCHES OPRAH’S SEASON PREMIERE WITH POWERFUL INTERVIEW AND PERFORMANCE ON
SEPTEMBER 14 AND SEPTEMBER 15
(New York, NY – September 9, 2009) Proving that it was well worth the wait, Whitney Houston’s long-awaited album I Look To You debuts at No. 1 on several charts across the world, including the US Top Albums and R&B Album charts, according to Nielsen/Soundscan. With 304,801 units sold within the first week of release in the US, this marks Whitney’s biggest first week sales of her career and the best selling first week by a female artist this year! Houston’s No. 1 position extends across the globe and claims the top spots in Canada, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland.
Led by the dual release of the album title track and “Million Dollar Bill” at radio, coupled with presale promotional campaigns on Amazon.com, QVC and iTunes, and a heavily promoted appearance on Good Morning America, the chart-topping result marks the official return of “The Voice.”
And the critics agree! The New York Times boasts that Whitney “re-emerges with full diva qualifications,” USA Today said: “Strong, confident and ready, she clearly hadn’t forgotten how to sing imbuing the material with emotional power.” The Washington Post cites I Look To You “hits all the right marks” and the Associated Press states “the pop queen still has a dazzling voice that can leave you spellbound.”
The spell will continue next week when Whitney Houston launches the 24th season of The Oprah Winfrey Show with a two-day event, inclusive of what Oprah calls “the best interview I’ve ever done,” and an emotional performance of “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” that had “grown men and women weeping in the aisles” according to Oprah’s recent Twitter post. “The Oprah Winfrey Show: Season Premiere: Oprah And Whitney Houston – The First Interview” airs Monday, September 14, 2009. “The Oprah Winfrey Show: Season Premiere Part II: Whitney Houston’s Show-Stopping Surprise” airs Tuesday, September 15, 2009 (check local listings).
WHITNEY HOUSTON OPENS UP LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND DELIVERS A POWERFUL, ROUSING PERFORMANCE ON
“THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW” SEASON PREMIERE
***MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th AND TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th***
CHICAGO – In a special two-part television event starting Monday, September 14, Oprah sits down with Whitney Houston for what she calls a “jaw-dropping, open, honest and candid” interview. During this world exclusive, Houston speaks out for the first time in seven years about her marriage with Bobby Brown, drugs, rehab and how her family saved her. With friends and family looking on, including Clive Davis and her daughter Bobbi Kristina, Houston brings down the house with an emotional performance of “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” from her new album “I Look To You.”
Winfrey shares her personal reflections on what she calls “one of the most powerful interviews” of her career:
Oprah Winfrey: I think it’s the best interview I’ve ever done. But I guess you’re supposed to let other people say that about yourself. I can’t think of a moment, ever, when I had a stronger connection to the person I was interviewing.
Oprah Winfrey: My approach to this interview was to not to be judgmental in any way, and not to go in trying to get her to say things to make a ‘moment.’ I just wanted to be able to have an honest conversation with her. One woman to another woman. And the day of the interview I literally prayed about that all day long. I just wanted a connection between the two of us. And that is what happened. And that is why I believe it’s one of the most, if not the most, powerful interviews I’ve ever done.
Oprah Winfrey: I think whether you liked or loved Whitney Houston before you will certainly have a deeper appreciation for what she has been through as a human being. And I mean, the fans are just going to love her even more.
