On This Day In History: Whitney Houston Makes Music History

whitney-houston1986 The life of recording artist, actress, producer, and model Whitney Elizabeth Houston has historically and thematically revolved around the month of February. It is the month of her untimely demise, the annual Grammy Award ceremony, statuettes of which she is the recipient of six of twenty six nominations, her friend and mentor Clive Davis’ annual gathering, and the debut of her trailblazing debut studio recorded album.

Houston’s total career awards are in excess of four hundred. She holds the record as most awarded female artist of all time. Arista Records released her self-titled debut on Valentine’s Day twenty eight years ago.

At the 28th Grammy Awards held on February 25, 1986 in Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, Houston was a four time nominee for the effort. The artist took home her first Grammy that night. Rolling Stone named the album the best of 1986.
