When I hear the name Whitney Houston, it’s not only her many chart topping hits and her performance in movies like The Bodyguard that come to mind, I also picture myself as a teenager in the early 1990s, belting out her smash hit “I Will Always Love You” in the shower. I’m not sure what my parents must have thought, but I imagine they liked it better than my shampoo bottle renditions of Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby”. This Whitney Houston t-shirt is a tribute to her legacy, starting with her debut album Whitney Houston, which was released in 1985 and became the bestselling album by a female artist at the time. She followed that album with 1987’s Whitney, which was the first album from a female artist to debut at number one on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. This success led her to her first acting role in 1992’s The Bodyguard opposite Kevin Costner. Portraying a pop superstar in the movie, the role allowed her to demonstrate her abilities as an actress, while at the same time giving fans of her music plenty of new songs to digest. In fact, The Bodyguard soundtrack won the Grammy for the 1994 album of the year and its most popular single “I Will Always Love You” (my shower anthem), became the best-selling single of all time by a female artist. In light of her passing, we are posting this Run DMC style Whitney Houston shirt that is a tribute to her legacy and is fitting for both guys and girls.
