Looking to Her

I somehow missed this while I was overseas for two weeks. Time to put all the Michael Jackson jokes aside before you read this post. Ready?

Does Whitney Houston still have what it takes? We'll soon know. On September 1, Arista will release Whitney's comeback album "I Look to You". Sure to be much better than her last effort in 2002- and much better than her oh-so-trendy Christmas album, the disc is designed to showcase the Whitney we first knew.

Expect ballads that soar and uptempo numbers that rock soulfully. Included will be her version of the Carpenters' Leon Russell-penned "A Song For You." What not to expect? A hit of Bodyguard proportions. But hopefully this is the beginning of round two for an artist who may have once again found her way.
