Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview airs Thursday, February 16 at 9 p.m. ET
TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - In memory of Whitney Houston, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network (Canada) will present a special two-hour Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview, with the music legend's last in-depth television interview from The Oprah Winfrey Show to air this Thursday, February 16 at 9 p.m. ET on OWN (day-and-date
with OWN U.S.).
This special television event, what is arguably Houston's most revealing
and compelling interview of her career, will be rebroadcast as Winfrey
reflects on her personal memories of the iconic superstar and shares
with fans the magic of a musical icon who has gone too soon.
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.
