On Monday, November 10, 2014 Whitney Houston’s Greatest Live Performances were released!! For a limited time, this album was available in a vinyl souvenir compilation, a CD/DVD combo, and on basic CD. The regular album is also available via iTunes and Amazon.
Super producer Clive Davis and renowned songstress Jennifer Hudson share their thoughts about Whitney Houston, best known as “The Voice” on The Today Show. The video clip below captures their love and admiration for Houston’s remarkable talent. Furthermore, in a article on Official Charts Company website, Davis shares that “watching her [Houston] on stage gave his goosebumps.” Many of her fans, like myself, share the same feeling. Hearing her unmatched voice, literally gave me chills. Which is why I purchased my limited edition CD/ DVD greatest performances compilation.
The biggest question I have about this project is the handling of royalties. Does Clive Davis and his business or the Whitney Houston estate get the most compensation? This always seems to be a big deal at the release of new projects for iconic deceased artists. Such relevance can be assumed by Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, Elvis Presley, and many more. At the end of the day, I guess the person who has control and ownership of the artistic content has the final decision on how it is ultimately used.
