Whitney Houston touched the lives of so many that the stories about her are endless. So many stood for her at her funeral and offered a song or a word or both. But now, one of her longtime friends and protege’s has had the honor of having their story immortalized on film.
The footage is of Brandy and Whitney’s first meeting and was archived and shelved until now. Extra payed homage to Houston with an airing of the footage that shows a 16-year old Brandy running away from Whitney visibly shaken from meeting her hero. They would be presenting at Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards together in 1995. In 1997, Brandy and Whitney would also work on the film “Cinderella”.
Whitney would become a sister and mentor to Brandy. Check out this beautiful moment between them. A big thumbs up to Extra for releasing the footage.
