The Greatest Music Divas Of The 1980s
3. Whitney Houston
She was a gospel singing schoolgirl that shot to fame when her debut album, 'Whitney Houston', was released in 1985. Following a whirlwind few years that saw her score hit after record-breaking hit, Whitney quickly became one of the most successful female soloists of all time. Her songs range from powerful ballads 'Saving All My Love For You' and 'Greatest Love Of All' to disco hits 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' and 'How Will I Know'.
