The Whitney Houston Show happening in Manila this August 2016!!!

I grew up hearing the songs of Houston in our Home. My Dad loves her music. Ofcourse, one of my favorite songs of Whitney is "I will always love you". I remember, when I watched her movie The Bodyguard in 1992, such an exciting & romantic motion picture, one of the most successful film in the United States. She won a lot of Grammy Awards for best pop vocal performance in 1988, Emmy Awards for outstanding performance, MTV Music Video in 1986 and other prestigious body. Probably, you missed her songs. So, I have a good news, you'll be hearing her songs again as Belinda Davis honors the memory of Whitney Houston, here in Manila. 

The astounding tribute show taking the world by storm! A fun and heart-felt concert dedicated to the incomparable Whitney Houston. The Greatest Love Of All: The Whitney Houston Show celebrates the magnificent catalogue of hits that Houston made famous during her 30 year career. The 2 ½ hour concert and stage show includes hits such as 'How Will I Know', 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody', 'Where Do Broken Hearts Go', 'Didn't We Almost Have It All', 'I'm Every Woman', 'One Moment In Time', 'I Have Nothing' and of course, 'I Will Always Love You' and many more.

Starring the breathtaking voice of Belinda Davids live in concert featuring the full production show from the US. Direct from sell out shows across Europe, plus a full band, dancers and theatrical effects, this show is not just a brilliant tribute but a spectacular concert experience in its own right and should not be missed!

In the wake of Whitney Houston's tragic passing in 2012, her timeless music and awe-inspiring voice have received renewed appreciation from her legion of long-time fans and garnered a new generation of admirers who appreciate Whitney's unique voice, undeniable talent and pervasive charm as a welcome contrast to the artists prevalent in today's contemporary music.

In preparation for such an anticipated show, and in respect for Houston's legacy, Showtime Management dedicated over 12 months to perfecting this production and finding the right star. After conducting over 15,000 auditions in 12 countries, accomplished South African vocalist BELINDA DAVIDS was selected to pay reverence to Houston with her carefully crafted renditions.
