Here is the Whitney only family would know... Somewhere outside the glare of the concert spotlights... behind the tawdry entertainment news headlines... beyond the crush of the scandal-seeking paparazzi... lies the truth about Whitney Houston. And few individuals are better qualified to show us that complicated, funny, generous, troubled, extremely loyal Whitney than the friend she called "brother," Bebe Winans. With obvious affection, yet remarkable transparency, Winans opens a window into their 28 years of friendship and family closeness to offer a view of the Whitney only a handful of people knew - the Whitney beyond The Voice. The entertainment press incessantly told us what Whitney did . Now, thanks to this tender, honest account, we understand what she thought and felt . Winans' audio book is a beautifully honest portrait of this astonishingly gifted woman, offering tremendous inspiration and a deeper understanding of human nature and God's grace.

display_description BeBe Winans met Whitney Houston in church 28 years ago, and they quickly developed a close bond. They considered each other family in the deepest sense of the word—hanging out in each other's homes, singing backup vocals for each other on albums, touring together. BeBe was with her when she was onstage and far from the spotlight, on the set and in the studio, through good times and the worst of times—and this very personal book takes readers inside all of those places to give a real and intimate picture of the Whitney he knew. Here readers will discover new information and insights into both Whitney's heart and her world—information that they will not find anywhere else. From profoundly moving moments to eye-opening accounts of triumph to the heart-breaking realities that led to her ultimate defeat, the stories are here, along with links to never-before-seen private videos of Whitney and a full-length photo section. In his moving tribute at her funeral, Winans reaffirmed that she will be remembered for her warm, lavish generosity, her faith, and her lighthearted humor—those positive truths that overshadow any negative missteps in recent years. "In my heart and in my mind, I have memories of so many great, great moments," he says. "She will live in our hearts forever."
