Whitney and children’s choir pictured during a break in filming the music video for “All The Man That I Need” at Newark Symphony Hall in New Jersey in 1990. The song was released as a single on December 4, 1990 with “Dancin’ On The Smooth Edge” as the B-side. Ten weeks after release, it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Whitney’s ninth Number One single. It became a #1 hit on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as well as the Hot Adult Contemporary chart, and became her first single to top all three charts simultaneously.

Here’s an early photo of Whitney with her mom, Cissy Houston, and producer Narada Michael Walden. This was taken around 1983-84 during the recording of Whitney’s first album, titled Whitney Houston. Narada produced (and co-wrote) the track “How Will I Know,” which was released as a single in November 1985 and became her second #1 Hot 100 single. The song was originally written for Janet Jackson, but she passed on it and Whitney did it with altered lyrics and production from Narada.
