BY BRICE SANDER ANCHOR JIM FLINK You're watching multisource entertainment news analysis from Newsy Crack is whack, but it might still be a problem for Whitney Houston. The songstress announced she’s re-entered rehab- for the third time this decade. But the reason why? That’s a mystery. HLN let’s us in on what her rep’s saying: ANCHOR: “Her rep says the singer/actress voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process. No details about where Whitney Houston is getting treatment, though, or what triggered it.” But people aren’t buying it. A blogger for the Frisky says that explanation’s bull. “Here’s my hunch—this is all legalese. Whitney isn’t sayin’ she has a problem with drugs or booze, but she’s drying out—er,cleansing—from one or both and the monitor is to make sure she sticks to it. In other words, she’s (probably) on a booze and drug sabbatical!” The Hollywood Reporter suggests we should’ve seen this coming. “Houston, who has battled problems with drug addiction for years, declared herself clean in 2009, the same year she released a comeback album. She has since delivered a series of shotty live performances.” As a WRC blogger notes, Houston’s rehab stay comes at a time when she probably doesn’t want any added attention. “This announcement comes as Whitney's 18 year-daughter with singer Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina Brown, battles allegations she was photographed at a party doing drugs.” Others suggest Houston’s return to rehab might have something to do with Angela Bassett’s recent announcement on The Talk. SHARON OSBOURNE: “Now, do you have something to tell us?” ANGELA BASSETT: “Well, it’s preliminary, but it’s gonna happen. You know, Waiting to Exhale 2.” ANGELA BASSETT: “She’s written the screenplay.” HOLLY ROBINSON-PEETE: “So are you in talks? I mean are we gonna get Loretta back?” ANGELA BASSETT: “Absolutely! Loretta loves to work. Loretta, Lela, Whitney! Forrest!” Yep, a Waiting to Exhale sequel, set to go into production later this year. As an OK Magazine writer suggests, Houston might be sobering up so she- and her fans- don’t miss out on a real comeback. “...the return of Whitney Houston to the big screen will be well worth its wait! … [H]er return to the silver screen will be the first since the 1996 film, The Preacher’s Wife.” Houston’s been enrolled in the program a little over a week on an out-patient basis. No word on when she’ll be out. 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your newsfeed. Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy. Transcript by Newsy

LOS ANGELES - Legendary pop singer Whitney Houston has died at age 48, representative Kristen Foster said Saturday night. The entertainer was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. ET) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel despite resuscitation efforts, a police spokesman said. The cause and location of her death was not immediately known. According to her official website, Houston, who struggled with addiction problems over the years, sold more than 170 million albums, singles and videos over her career. Houston was set to appear in this year's "Sparkle," a remake of the 1976 hit, which was loosely based on the story of The Supremes. It was her first movie role since 1996's "The Preacher's Wife." News of her death elicited a flood of reaction on social media, from fans and fellow celebrities alike. Whitney Houston seemed 'in good spirits' Music producer Russell Simmons wrote he was "deeply saddened by the death of Whitney Houston," while singer Gloria Estefan said she was "shocked we've lost the immensely talented" entertainer. Houston's body of work includes seven straight Billboard No. 1 hits in the 1980s, including "Saving All My Love for You," "How Will I Know," "Greatest Love of All" and "Where Do Broken Hearts Go." Billboard put her soundtrack to the movie "The Bodyguard" as one of the top 10 biggest-selling albums of all time. She also starred in the film. The daughter of singer Cissy Houston, Whitney was born on August 9, 1963, in Newark, New Jersey. Famed music producer Clive Davis reportedly spotted Houston 20 years later in a New York nightclub, signing her on the spot, according to her website. The singer's rendition of the national anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl, days into the first Persian Gulf War, earned raves and cemented her place in the American musical landscape. After "The Bodyguard," Houston went on to appear in several more films in the 1990s, including "Waiting to Exhale." In 2000, Houston earned her sixth Grammy for best female R&B performance and, a month later, she was named female artist of the decade at the "Soul Train" Music Awards. Houston died on the eve of this year's Grammy Awards. Her career stalled, however, in subsequent years as she entered rehab for addiction problems. In May 2011, Houston got help for her much-publicized struggle with drugs and alcohol, her representative said at the time. In a 2009 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Houston recalled how her mother arrived one day at her doorstep at her daughter's house with sheriff's officers and a court order in a drug intervention. She talked about doing cocaine and smoking marijuana. "(My mother) says, 'I have a court (injunction) here," Houston said. "Either you do it my way, or we're just not going to do this at all. We are both going to go on TV, and you're going to retire.'" Houston had a high-profile and tumultuous marriage to Bobby Brown, a former "New Edition" star who has had multiple brushes with the law. The couple appeared together in the mid-2000s on the reality show "Being Bobby Brown." Producer Clive Davis steered Houston's career for more than 25 years, also serving as a mentor.

During the 80s and 90s, Whitney Houston was an unstoppable force in pop music. With sales estimated to exceed 200 million records, she is one of the biggest-selling female singers ever. Whitney Houston was born to a family with impressive singing credentials - her mother was gospel singer Cissy Houston, her cousin was five-time Grammy winner Dionne Warwick, and her godmother was the 'Queen of Soul' herself, Aretha Franklin. Her first break came when she sang backing vocals on Chaka Khan's "I'm Every Woman" when she was only 16. She continued to record, sing and tour with her mother, but although she was offered recording contracts she turned them all down until, in 1983, she signed with Arista. Her debut album Whitney Houston appeared in 1985 but it was not an instant hit. However, due to the singles "Saving All My Love for You" (which won a Grammy), "How Will I Know" and "Greatest Love of All", it eventually reached the top of the Billboard charts and lodged there for several weeks. Critical praise, awards, television shows and massive sales ensured a grand entrance into the music world for new superstar Whitney Houston. Her follow-up album was 1987's nine-times platinum Whitney. It debuted at the top of the charts in many countries and the success of the singles "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)", "Didn't We Almost Have it All", "So Emotional" and "Where do Broken Hearts Go" gave her a record of achieving seven consecutive singles at No.1. In response to an enduring criticism that she was somewhat bland, she experimented with a more urban feel on her next release. I'm Your Baby Tonight (1990) found her exploring her versatility as an artist, with a fair degree of success. The album was certified four-times platinum. Her next endeavor was her acting debut in The Bodyguard. It was a huge box-office hit and the accompanying soundtrack album went on to achieve 17x platinum certification in the US alone. The lead single from the album was a cover of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" which cemented itself to the top of the charts in many countries. Her next two releases were soundtrack albums, Waiting to Exhale (to which she contributed three songs) and The Preacher's Wife, both of which were supporting films in which she had acting roles. In 1998 she released My Love is Your Love which continued her exploration of urban sounds such as hip-hop and reggae. Two years later she released Whitney: the Greatest Hits, but unfortunately this marked a slide in her fortunes. When Just Whitney was released in 2002 it received poor reviews and the singles failed to chart well. She followed it with a Christmas-themed record, One Wish: the Holiday Album, which performed even less well. Since then, column inches have been dedicated to her battles with drugs, and with her husband Bobby Brown (whom she had married in 1992 after a 3 year courtship and divorced in 2007).

Whitney Houston - Who Would Imagine A King - from the soundtrack to the film "Preacher's Wife" I'm so sorry, I don' have the vid. Don't be shy, rate and comment Please note that the poster admits that he doesn't own the copyright of this song or video Lyrics: Mommies and daddies always believe That their little angels are special indeed And you could grow up to be anything But who would imagine a king? A shepherd or teacher is what you could be Or maybe a fisherman out on the sea Or maybe a carpenter building things But who would imagine a king? It was so clear when the wise men arrived And the angels were singing your name That the world would be different 'cause you were alive That's what heaven stood still to proclaim One day an angel said quietly That soon he would bring something special to me And of all of the wonderful gifts he could bring Who would imagine, who could imagine, Who would imagine a king?
