Whitney fell in love, with the foundation.

On February 11, 2012, the entire world paused during the announcement of the sudden death of pop icon Whitney Houston. It was sincerely a shock and a tragedy to loose one of the most outstanding women vocal artists of all time. Houston was only 48-years old.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Whitney Houston was the most awarded female singer/actor in history. As of 2010 she had accomplished an achievement of two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 22 American Music Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and a total of 415-career awards.

Today the Angel Orensanz Foundation is paying tribute to the this great singer and celebrating her career. Did you know that her 1992 hit single “I’m Every Woman” was filmed here in the Foundation? That’s right! Before the Foundation was even renovated Whitney Houston discovered the remarkable temple and decided it was a perfect location for the video shoot.

“I’m every woman

It’s all in me

Anything you want done baby

I do it naturally”

“I am every woman”, Whitney Houston

That day the acoustics of the building were alive again, Whitney sang with power and grace while her crew danced behind her mimicking her vocals with each body movement.

In September 2010 Whitney Houston was ranked among the top 100 Greatest Artists of All Time” by VH1. We will always think of her as our number one for gracing us with her talent at the very beginning of our journey as the Angel Orensanz Foundation.
