Foster, Warren Say New Whitney Houston Is ‘Amazing’

Whitney Houston’s comeback is not only applauded by Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Hudson, noted songwriter Diane Warren and former “I Will Always Love You” hitmaker David Foster say Whitney is working incredibly hard. Speaking with Parade.com, Warren, who also penned Monica’s “For You I Will,” says a song she penned for Houston’s comeback album forced her to step into the singer’s shoes. “I don’t usually write music with someone in mind, but I set out to write specifically for Whitney,” says Warren. When asked about the former “Queen Of The Night” singer’s vocals, Warren said “Seriously, it was amazing. I’ll tell you something, Whitney is back. Let there be no doubt!” David Foster, who worked with the diva on “I Will Always Love You,” says Houston’s comeback is the real deal: “I was in the studio with her last week. Her work ethic was exactly the same when we did the song for The Bodyguard. Whitney is a girl that everybody would like to see come back and, in this case, it really would be a comeback. A lot of people say, ‘Come back? I never left.’ But Whitney did leave and she hasn’t recorded in about 10 years, I believe. So this truly would be a comeback.” Whitney Houston’s as-yet-untitled album is slated for release later this year.
