Whitney Houston Week continued
"Where Do Broken Hearts Go"



[Editor's note] Today I'd like to focus on something seldom discussed. Namely, how beautiful Whitney Houston is was.

In this 1988 video for "Where Do Broken Hearts Go", one can really appreciate the unassuming prettiness that Whitney had. She was poised and powerful. Her hair, the make-up, that off the shoulder dress-- she was working us into a fevered frenzy of all-out Divadom.

Ironically, Houston did not want to record this song because she didn't think there was a special message to convey. However, Arista Records CEO Clive Davis believed the song would go to number one if she recorded it, so she agreed. The single became Houston's seventh consecutive number one single in the United States.

You can find the first two installments of Whitney Week here and here.
