LOS ANGELES, CA.- The GRAMMY Museum, in cooperation with the family of Whitney Houston, debuted a major new exhibition, Whitney! Celebrating The Musical Legacy of Whitney Houston. This is the first major museum exhibition to explore the extraordinary career of the six-time GRAMMY Award® winner and will be on display through February, 2013.

"I’m honored that the family of Whitney Houston has chosen to work with us to create Whitney!,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum. "As one of the greatest vocalists of our time, we are particularly excited to showcase her long connection to the GRAMMY Awards show and to celebrate the musical genius that made her one of America’s most-awarded pop and soul vocalists.”

Whitney! provides an in-depth look at all aspects of Houston’s creative life. Bringing together a collection of diverse artifacts, rare photographs and footage, the exhibit features dozens of items from the private collection of the Houston family, including:

• Stage costumes worn by Houston, including her famous white, beaded gown worn at the 1992 GRAMMY Awards, where she won “Album of the Year”

• Albums and career scrapbooks from Houston’s early career;

• Houston’s personal Bible

• Rare photographs of Houston both on and off stage;

• Concert posters, tour books and fan memorabilia;

• And much more

Additionally, The GRAMMY Museum has interviewed artists and musicians who have worked with or have been influenced by Houston, sharing their perspectives on her gift of performance that astounded and touched fans all over the world.

With over 170 million combined album, singles and videos sold worldwide during her career with Arista Records, Whitney Houston has established a benchmark for superstardom that will quite simply never be eclipsed in the modern era. Music historians cite Whitney’s record-setting achievements: the only artist to chart seven consecutive #1 Billboard Hot 100 hits (“Saving All My Love For You,” “How Will I Know,” “Greatest Love Of All,” “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me),” “Didn’t We Almost Have It All,” “So Emotional,” and “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”); the first female artist to enter the Billboard 200 album chart at #1 (her second album, Whitney, 1987); and the only artist with seven consecutive multi-platinum albums (Whitney Houston, Whitney, I’m Your Baby Tonight, The Bodyguard, Waiting To Exhale, and The Preacher’s Wife soundtracks, and My Love Is Your Love).

“This exhibit is a token of appreciation from our family for Whitney’s fans to enjoy and embrace,” said Pat Houston, Whitney Houston’s manager. “We hope they are as elated as we are to have shared in such a remarkable life.”
