Global superstar Whitney Houston is set to do her first UK TV performance in 12 years. She is set to perform on The X Factor on October 18th, the day before she releases her brand new album ‘I Look To You’. Whitney says:“I have always loved my UK fans and I’m thrilled to perform for them on X Factor. I am also a fan of Simon Cowell’s and look forward to meeting him. It should be a fun night.”
‘I Look To You’ entered at #1 in the US album charts with 305,000 sales. The biggest week one sale of her career and the biggest of any female artist this year. Whitney’s second album “Whitney” was the first ever by a female artist to enter the US chart at #1 in 1987. Her last #1 album “Bodyguard” spent 20 weeks at the top spot in 1993.
On ‘I Look To You’, her first studio album since 2002, Houston has once again teamed up with her longtime collaborator, the legendary music business executive Clive Davis. “This album has more elements than any other Whitney album and that has made it very exciting to work on,” says Davis. “Almost every song is a candidate for a single.”
Whitney Houston has sold an incredible 134 million albums, 11 million in the UK alone. Little wonder then that ‘I Look To You’ is one of the most anticipated albums of this or any other year.
