For Houston, that meant coming of age in the church, as the daughter of pop gospel great Cissy Houston. Despite the very different settings, both stories find gifted teenage girls enjoying the ecstasy of first love while facing the challenges and confusion of same-sex attraction in a homophobic society; both touch on the draw and the drag of drugs; and both are about musicians discovering their promise and power. A generous, loving book that has more insight on Houston's career--the ride, the fall--than any other single source that I've encountered . I think she finally decided so many years later to speak about her friendship with Whitney so the rest of the world could see the Whitney she knew. Robyn received criticism for writing this book after Whitney died and she said her reasoning behind it was to put some of the headlines at rest about Whitney.

Their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, essentially was left to fend for herself while her parents were a mess and it is tragic she lost her life at such an early age. Houston was often publicly gracious toward Crawford, thanking her in liner notes and at award ceremonies, but Crawford was understandably pained by Houston's increasingly vigorous denials under continued questioning about her rumored bisexuality. Had this been today, Whitney would be alive and no doubt living her life with Robyn as there are a lot of entertainers today who are openly gay/bisexual and no-one bats an eyelid. Crawford and Houston shared a few more moments of connection after the author quit the business of Nippy, but they were increasingly far between. The tragedy is that Whitney was not only trying to convince others she was into men, she was also try to convince herself.This book is an author telling us about herself in attempts to regain the narrative of her life after decades of the media spreading lies about her. Clearly Whitney wanted, no, needed that career but having to give up her love was part of the reason the drug taking became an addiction too strong for her to fight.

They were on drugs from being teenagers - so the reason why a woman so gifted as Whitney would fall so deeply into drugs has its roots right there. Whitney’s world”, as she puts it, couldn’t have been further away, and even after the singer’s death, Crawford felt the best approach was to lie low. We safely hid it from everybody else; it was our secret, but we couldn't hide from Him — or whomever God is. There are a handful of singers who, when you hear their voice for the first time give you a "wow" moment and a tingle that touches you deep.Robyn Crawford has been this mysterious woman that we’ve all seen by Whitney’s side from the very beginning of Whitney’s music career. She also told Crawford that, “if they found out – because her career was taking off – they’d use it against us”. The early chapters of A Song for You are movingly similar to much of Tegan and Sara's recent memoir High School.

Finding out her sister was bipolar at 30 something AFTER having professional trouble and personal loss!Strangely enough, Crawford’s loving yet honest portrayal of her friend cured me of feeling sorry for Houston, which I’ve done for years.

When she finally accepted, Crawford could see why Costner related to Houston and knew the star had to be her. One of the biggest misconceptions that I had about Whitney Houston was that it was Bobby Brown who introduced her to drugs, which is not true. After Houston married Bobby Brown, she told him about her past with Crawford and his jealous rage exacerbated the growing rift that resulted in Crawford leaving Nippy Inc. Viewed from the outside, the confusing thing about all this is that, for much of the time, the relationship appeared to be starkly uneven. you tried it Sir—- I hollered at Robyn’s recant of Whitney’s description of him and his cheating ways.They are simply living their authentic lives as people today are far more tolerant and empathetic, which is so refreshing and shows as a society how far we have come and how archaic this world once was. In the past two years, two documentaries about her relationships and the demons she struggled have emerged; even now, people can't get enough of the story of the enigmatic superstar, her astronomical rise and highly publicized fall. The coroner ruled her death to be accidental drowning, brought on in part by cocaine and heart disease.
