Whitney Houston’s first ever live album is set for release this coming November. Clive Davis is set to release the CD three years after the legendary singer’s untimely death.
During a visit to the “TODAY” offices, Davis announced the album’s official release. He told Hoda Kotb, “She was without question the greatest vocalist in the world. There was no one like her.”
The release is titled “Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances” and will be out on November 10, 2014 as a CD and DVD.
Davis said that he was often present for her “incredible live performances” and added that it “was a marvel that she was as powerful and as incredible as she was. But bittersweet that she died too young.”
The release will feature 16 live songs on CD and 19 performances on DVD. Memorable tracks will include “You Give Good Love” in a 1985 “Tonight Show” appearance; “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl XXV in 1991; and “I Will Always Love You” at The Concert for a New South Africa in 1994.
The release comes with the blessing of Houston’s family, including her mother Cissy, who Davis said helped him assemble the tracks.
“This is her legacy,” Davis said of Houston.
