On Tuesday (September 1), Whitney Houston took the stage to perform live on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in New York City.
Joined by hosts Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts, the “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” singer belted out her new tunes to the large crowd gathered at Rumsey Playfield.
Meanwhile, When Whitney Houston went through hard times, she said her religious beliefs helped her get through her demons.
The famous singer, who faced an addiction to crack cocaine and a crazy marriage to singer Bobby Brown, spoke about her faith in Christianity giving her strength to get her life together and move forward.
“I thank God that people love me. But I really thank God that God loves me. I thank Him for chastening my heart, for never letting go. What I did sometime…I went off and did my thing, but He never let me go.”
Whitney has launched her comeback album that has everybody talking, since the last time she dropped an album was seven years ago.
“I shed a lot of stuff, a lot of unnecessary weight in the last three or four years. I left a lot of old luggage behind, and when I did, the blessings just started pouring on me, and the light in my spirit started to lift again.”
Additionally, Houston explained that she only agreed create a new album after she was sure her teenage daughter, Bobbi Kristina, trusted her as a mother.
“She and I are not only mother and daughter, but we’re good friends,” she told Ebony magazine. “I want her to trust me, to be able to trust in me, to know that I’m not going nowhere.”
Whitney is all about prioritizing as a mom and wants to be the best she can be to her daughter.
“If she knows that I’m there for her, she can depend on me. I’m the dependable one; she can depend on her mommy. My mother’s getting older. I wanted to spend more time with my mom because during most of my 20s and 30s, I was dealing with making records and traveling the world and being this thing — icon.”
