Oprah Plans a Whitney Houston Tribute ShowThe Oprah Winfrey Network has announced a special two hour Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview show to air on February 16, 2012 from 9-11pm ET/PT. The show will feature Oprah’s in-depth interview with Whitney Houston as well as personal recollections of her relationship with the troubled singer.
In September 2009 for the The Oprah Winfrey Show season 24 premiere, Winfrey sat down with Houston for a special one-on-one interview. After nearly seven years since the world heard the music icon’s voice, Houston gave an intimate and poignant performance of “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.” She shared only with Winfrey the private struggles she tried to hide from public view and discussed openly about her marriage to R&B star Bobby Brown, her struggles with drug abuse and why she retreated from the spotlight. Opening up to Winfrey like never before, Houston also spoke candidly of the day she left her husband, her sorrow over the death of Michael Jackson and her hopes for her future.
