Whitney Houston is so influential in the music industry, as well as pushing the boundaries of race.

Today, we are going to share with you the best 10 Whitney Houston songs, paying tribute to her.

10. How Will I Know

“How will I know if he’s thinking of me
I try to phone but I’m too shy (can’t speak)
Falling in love is so bitter sweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak”

How Will I Know was released on 22 November, 1985. It got great success: It peaked at No.1 on Billboard Hot 100 of US, becoming the second single of Whitney Houston to do so; it also topped US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and was ranked No.3 on the UK Singles.

The song is about a girl is confused about whether the boy she loves will love her.  The lyrics totally expressed that girl’s complicated feelings.

But I think Whitney Houston’s singing shows the excitement inside the girl. It reminds me of my first love, shy but excited at the time. Come on to enjoy it. The song may touch your heart.

9. Could I Have This Kiss Forever

“Could I hold you close beside me
Could I hold you for all time
Could I could I have this kiss forever”

Could I Have This Kiss Forever was released on 10 September, 2000. It was recorded by Whitney Houston and Enrique Iglesias, and then became successful worldwide. It topped No.1 on European Hot 100, and also peaked at the top 10 on the weekly charts in many countries.

Houston is an American R&B artist, while Iglesias is known as king of Latin pop. You may think this duet is strange. But actually their combination is fantastic and awesome.

I bet that you will love this song the moment you listen to it. Can’t help listening to this song for a whole day!

8. I Look to You

“I look to you
I look to you
After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong”

I Look to You, written by R. Kelly, was released as the single of its same name album on 23 July, 2009, also Whiney Houston’s final studio album. She once said that it was all she wanted to say at that stage of her life. Its music video on YouTube has reached 105 million views.

Her voice in I Look to You was different from her previous singles. We are not getting into the bottom of it. It just sounds she was telling us the story of her own.

Every time I am in a bad mood, I will listen to this song. It always makes me feel at peace. Now, share the song with you, and hope it can give you strength to move on when you are in trouble.

7. One Moment in Time

“I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away”

One Moment in Time was released on August 27, 1988. It ranked No.5 on the US Billboard Hot 100. And it also peaked at No.1 on the UK Singles and the US Adult Contemporary. One Moment in Time also won Emmy award. And it has been sold more than 2 million copies worldwide.

Undoubtedly, the song must have encouraged so many people to overcome the difficulties they met with. Houston’s singing is always powerful.

And the lyric of One Moment in Time is full of strength. I love the lyrics “I’m more than I thought I could be/ you’re a winner for a lifetime”. Wish you can seize that “one moment in time”. Enjoy this song!

6. Run to You

“I want to run to you but if I come to you
Tell me, will you stay or will you run away”

Run to You was released on 21 June, 1993. It was the fourth single in her album The Bodyguard, which was published before the song, and also has achieved great success.

Maybe that’s why the single didn’t reach a great hit as her previous songs. But chart performance is not everything. It is still popular among listeners. Its music video on YouTube has been over 104 million views.

It is like magic that when Houston started singing, I was enchanted. Her voice is incredible. It is said that Houston had a cold the night she recorded this song. But it is still amazing and thrilling. Put on your earphone to listen to this beautiful song.

5. Greatest Love of All

“No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me”

The original version of The Greatest Love of All was recorded by George Benson. And then in 1985 Whitney Houston re-recorded it as a single in the album of her name, Whitney Houston, and also slightly changed the name as Greatest Love of All.

It was a great hit then. It topped No.1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the US Adult Contemporary, also peaking at No.1 in Australia.

It is a song about raising children and love for them. Maybe it expressed more, including love for everything and everybody.

What impressed me most in the song is “no matter what they take away from me/ they can’t take away my dignity/ because the greatest love of all is happening to me.” Come on for listening to this song.

4. I Wanna Dance with Somebody

“Oh! I want to dance with somebody
I want to feel the heat with somebody
Yeah! I want to dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me”

I Wanna Dance with Somebody was released on May 2, 1987. And the single was commercially successful, peaking at No.1 in 18 weekly charts worldwide, including UK Singles, US Billboard Hot 100, and European Hot 100 Singles. And also at the Second Soul Train Music Awards in 1988, its music video was nominated for “Best Music Video“.

There are colorful images in the music video. And Whitney Houston was dressed in different styles, sometimes in sexy dress, but sometimes in cowboy suit. The vivid scene, combined with Whitney Houston’s distinctive voice, is awesome. Why not dance to it together with us?

3. When You Believe

“Who knows what miracles you can achieve?
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe”

When You Believe was recorded by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey as the soundtrack for The Prince of Egypt, an animated musical of DreamWorks . And in 1999, the song was awarded the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Its music video on YouTube has been viewed over 117 million times.

Listening to this song is so enjoyable, whether the verse parts or the chorus part. The combination of Whitney Houston’s and Mariah Carey’s voice sounds comfortable and harmonious, while their verses have features of their own. Check the video below, and you will be surprised for their singing.

It is a song about deep love between lovers. Whitney Houston sings out the voice of all boys and girls in love, especially her voice on the high notes perfectly expressing the wish for the mutual commitment between lovers. It is absolute an awesome love song. Hope you will like it.

You, my darling you, hm”
