As anyone who grew up in the '80s or '90s can tell you, Whitney Houston was one of the world's most prolific singers and musical talents. Launching her singing career in 1985 with her self-titled debut album, her success quickly garnered international fame like no other black female artist before her. She set numerous records for sales of her albums and also branched off into an acclaimed acting career.
Whitney Houston's fame reached around the world, but it also continues to influence future generations. Take the 4-year-old child seen in this video for example.
