Whitney Houston Shows Signs of Chart Return With Comeback Gig

Queen of R&B Whitney Houston will begin her comeback campaign with a performance at the Caudwell Children’s Legend Ball at Battersea Evolution in London on May 8. “We are thrilled to have an artist of Whitney’s caliber to headline the event,” the charity’s founder, John Caudwell, told Marie Claire UK. “Last year was a huge success and with Whitney’s support, we are fully expecting this year’s event to be bigger and better than ever.” Last year, Tina Turner headlined the benefit and helped the organization raise more than $2.4 million. The group believes Houston’s stature will help surpass this figure. The May performance will be the 44-year-old music legend’s first performance since she sang on December 1, 2006 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In other news, organizers has slammed reports it is paying Houston a multi-million dollar fee for the event after media outlets reported that the charity had paid upwards of $3.4 million for the gig. A spokesperson for the organization has blasted this figure, branding the claims “ludicrous.”
