Whitney Houston Makes A Surprise Appearance At ‘The BET Celebration of Gospel’


Whitney Houston surprised the audience inside The Orpheum Theater in downtown LA last night when she appeared on stage to perform unannounced at this year’s BET Celebration of Gospel event. During Kim Burrell’s stunning performance, the stage opened up and Whitney came out to duet with her for the song’s second verse … and I understand the audience went WILD for Whitney:

A legendary diva comes out to play! Diva Whitney Houston, who has been rather quite lately, took to the stage and performed at the annual BET Celebration of Gospel show at the Orpheum Theatre in LA over the weekend. The show hosted by king of comedy’s Steve Harvey saw the 47-year-old perform her R. Kelly written and produced anthem ‘I Look To You’ with the amazing gospel/jazz talent Kim Burrell. Other performances included Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, El Debarge, The Rance Allen Group, Kelly Price and Chaka Khan. According to reviews, Whitney vocally smashed her performance! We will have to wait and see when the show airs on January 30th, 2011! It’s good to see a more voluptuous Ms Whit looking well. Our favourite powerhouse has come under a lot of criticism for her weight gain but at her age, I think she looks great!

I concur, Whitney looks FANTASTIC! It’s a shame that we haven’t heard much from our dear Whitney in the months since she wrapped her international concert tour. I was hoping that she would at least perform a couple of shows here in the US but my guess is that all of the vicious attacks on her international tour squashed any desire for her to perform an entire concert here at home. Still, I’m very glad to hear that Whitney is doing so well … it is my understanding that she brought the house down at the BET Celebration of Gospel last night. I’m gonna hafta tune in on January 30 to watch my girl perform on the show. She looks great, no?

  • God is working on Whitney. When we truly turn it over to the Lord He restores us as white as snow. This is just the beginning of what God is going to do, but in the end He must get all the glory. Imagine all of the unsaved people that He’s going to use Whitney to reach. Whitney had to go through because God had to humble her first “condition”. All I can say is “Eyes have not seen, neither have ears heard, all of the good things God has in store for this woman”. So everyone be careful with what you let part from your lips for what the Lord is doing in this woman’s life.
