Review

If proof were needed of the power of music to inspire, look no further than Whitney Houston belting out her Olympics anthem One Moment in Time at the 1989 Grammy Awards. My word – she seems to hold that final magnificent “freeeeee!” for longer than it takes an athlete to run the 400 metres.

In this celebratory look back at how her sizeable talents were put to use by producers, we witness Whitney in all eras of her career, from bubblegum star to soul princess by way of her years as a pop-ballad diva. Backstage struggles feature, too, but for those wanting a more in-depth analysis of darker times, The Last Hours of Whitney Houston follows at 11.40pm.
