Whitney Houston celebrated her birthday yesterday and all of us here at www.WhitneyHouston.com want to send out our well wishes. Happy Birthday Whitney! Let’s do our part to make this year the best year for Whitney!
The Bodyguard is still one of the best selling movie soundtracks of all-time and the next video on our countdown, “Run To You,” was Whitney’s fourth and last single to be released from this worldwide smash. Like the other videos from The Bodyguard, “Run To You” is predominantly compiled from clips of the movie, but it also devotes plenty of time to stunning close-ups of Whitney herself. As she sings, Whitney takes on an angelic bearing while reciting the song’s deeply romantic lyrics, and is later shown running towards the viewer out of a sea of clouds, in reference to the song’s title, naturally. “Run To You” would make it to #10 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart and #15 on the UK Singles Chart, and was later nominated for a 1992 Academy Award for “Best Original Song,” along with the third single from The Bodyguard soundtrack (and video 8 on our countdown), “I Have Nothing”.

Not to be confused with the early rock & roll classic made famous by Elvis Presley, “Heartbreak Hotel” was the second single from Whitney’s 1998 album, My Love Is Your Love, which was certified quadruple platinum in the U.S. and sold an estimated 10 million copies worldwide! The single was certified platinum in its own right after hitting #1 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart, garnered two Grammy nominations, and features guest vocals from Faith Evans and Kelly Price – both of whom joined Whitney for the striking and vividly colored video, itself nominated for ‘Best R&B Video’ at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards.
