Cissy Houston will always love her Whitney Houston.
Now, she'll have a chance to remember her late daughter, who died in February at age 48, by writing a "unabridged and unbelievable story" to be published by Harper Collins.
Here's what the mom said:
"When I lost my daughter Nippy, the world lost one of the most beautiful voices and an extraordinarily beautiful and charitable woman. In sharing our story in this book, I hope to give her fans something to treasure, the way we all treasured Whitney. We are still receiving thousands of letters each day from her fans, and I hope reading this book will provide a deeper understanding into my daughter's true story."
Harper Collins also released a statement which said:
"She will tell the unabridged and unbelievable story of her daughter's life as well as her own, addressing Whitney's brightest and darkest moments while helping fans around the world understand the complexities of this extraordinary star who died much too soon. Ultimately, Cissy will go behind the headlines to show the true, human side of this strong, successful yet complicated musical icon, capturing the dramatic depths and soaring range of an extraordinary woman, along with the pain and heartbreak of a grieving mother as she struggles with impossible loss."
We think this is a wonderful way for the world to gain a deeper understanding of the beloved and missed Whitney Houston, as well as an opportunity for the mom to hopefully aid her grief by rehashing and remembering her talented but troubled daughter.
We can't wait for next February!
