Product Overview

Whitney’s lifelong dream of creating a pop/gospel album was realized in November 1996, when Arista released the original motion picture soundtrack album for The Preacher’s Wife, the biggest selling gospel album in Billboard chart history. Nurtured by her mother, R&B/gospel star Cissy Houston (an original member of the Sweet Inspirations) and her legendary cousin Dionne Warwick, Whitney’s passion for gospel music has been there since birth. Her collaboration with an extraordinary roster of producers and artists resulted in one of the most unique albums to date. Whitney sang lead vocals on 14 of the album’s 15 tracks, including the beautiful first single "I Believe In You And Me," "Step By Step" (written by Annie Lennox), and two songs produced by Grammy award-winner Babyface. In addition, Cissy Houston sang solo on a special track, "The Lord Is My Shepherd," in which she turned the familiar 23rd Psalm into a spiritually touching song by adding music to the standard prayer. The gospel-driven tracks on the album were co-produced by Whitney and Grammy/Dove award winner Mervyn Warren (Sister Act I and Sister Act II). Other luminaries on the album included Shirley Caesar and the Georgia Mass Choir.
