It’s been a little while since we’ve had a Pink is the new Blog Contest around here so I think it’s high time that we have one … I have been given 3 copies of the just-released 25th Anniversary Edition of Whitney Houston’s self-titled debut album so I need to find the biggest Whitney Houston fans to give them to. Here is a photo of what’s up for grabs along with a description from the album’s press release:
On January 26, 2010, Arista Records/Legacy Recordings will release the 25th Anniversary Edition of ‘Whitney Houston’, the astonishing debut album that catapulted a virtually unknown young artist into the upper reaches of pop superstardom in 1985. The ‘Whitney Houston’ – 25th Anniversary Edition CD/DVD package includes the international chart-topping original Arista album – remastered in its entirety for the 25th anniversary – along with five bonus tracks including Whitney’s a cappella recording of “How Will I Know” plus a stunning live performance of “Greatest Love of All”. As an added bonus for fans, the 25th Anniversary Edition of ‘Whitney Houston’ includes a features-packed new DVD. Three rare tv performances are included: “I Am Changing”, a song from the 1982 Broadway production of ‘Dreamgirls’, performed live at the Arista Records 10th Anniversary celebration in 1985; “You Give Good Love” performed live at the first annual Soul Train Awards Show in 1987; and Whitney’s breakout national TV debut singing “Home” (from ‘The Wiz’) on the Merv Griffin Show in 1983. All four classic music videos – “You Give Good Love”, “Saving All My Love For You”, “How Will I Know”, and “Greatest Love of All” – appear on the DVD. Exclusive and newly filmed interviews with Whitney Houston and Clive Davis round out the bonus DVD portion of the ‘Whitney Houston’ – 25th Anniversary Edition collection.
You may recall that we previously got to see a EPK video which features Whitney Houston and Arista head Clive Davis talking about this iconic album and now YOU can win a FREE COPY of this 2-disc set :) All you have to do is email a photo to pinkisthenewblog @gmail.com (with a subject line that reads Whitney Contest) that shows what your idea of the Greatest Love of All is. It could be your BFF, your pet, your sibling(s), your lover … it could be anything that YOU consider the Greatest Love of All. Of the submitted entries, I will pick 3 at random and those folks will win a copy each of Whitney Houston: 25th Anniversary Edition. I’ll take emailed photo submissions up until next Tuesday, February 2. Of course, you don’t have to participate in this contest if you really cannot wait to own a copy of this album — it is released in stores TODAY!
But if you want to play along, make sure you send in your photos and good luck!!
