Then she entered a Catholic girls’ high school in Caldwell. While there she made the acquaintance of Robyn Crawford who became her best friend. At the same time her mother taught her singing. It is also known that Whitney liked music of Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan and Gladys Knight and this had an influence on her future works. Early Career Cissy Houston, her mother, performed in nightclubs and Whitney often appeared on stage with her. When Houston was 14 she sang with the Michael Zager Band. It was the single “Life’s a Party”. Afterwards Zager offered Whitney a recording contract but her mother was against because Houston had to finish school. A year later she began to cooperate with Chaka Khan.
In the early 80s Whitney began to work as a fashion model. She cooperated with different fashion magazines like Cosmopolitan, Glamour and others. At the same time she worked with producers Martin Bisi, Bill Laswell and Michael Beinhorn. In 1983 head of Arista Records Clive Davis made the acquaintance of Houston.

She released six studio albums, one holiday album and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification. Houston's crossover appeal on the popular music charts, as well as her prominence on MTV, starting with her video for "How Will I Know", influenced several African American female artists to follow in her footsteps. Houston is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits. She is the second artist behind Elton John and the only female artist to have two number-one Billboard 200 Album awards (formerly "Top Pop Album") on the Billboard magazine year-end charts.

Houston's first acting role was as the star of the feature film The Bodyguard (1992). The film's original soundtrack won the 1994 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Its lead single "I Will Always Love You", became the best-selling single by a female artist in music history. In 1989, Houston formed The Whitney Houston Foundation For Children, a non-profit organization that has raised funds for the needs of children around the world. The organization cares for homelessness, children with cancer or AIDS, and other issues of self-empowerment.
