Showtime Australia presents the critically-acclaimed live concert honouring the talent, music and memory of Whitney Houston. Featuring the breathtaking vocals of Belinda Davids accompanied by a fabulous 6-piece live band and dancers, this is a beautifully crafted tribute to one of the world’s most revered singers.
The two-hour production will fill you with joy, nostalgia and wonderment as you are taken on a heartfelt musical journey through Houston’s greatest hits including I Will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, How Will I Know, One Moment in Time, I Have Nothing, Run to You, Didn’t We Almost Have It All, Greatest Love of All, I’m Every Woman, Queen of the Night, Exhale (Shoop Shoop) and more.
The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show has already wowed audiences across the US, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Asia, UAE, Australia and New Zealand and now following its debut UK tour in 2016 the show returns due to popular demand for a second tour in 2017.
In 2013 Davids beat almost 15,000 other hopefuls to take on the dream role and it was her own eternal love of Houston that prepared her for the show. Exposed mainly to R&B and gospel as a child, Davids was innately drawn to Houston’s musical style. Singing professionally from her early teens, Houston songs became a fixture in Davids’ live shows. “I think I’ve sung at least one Houston track in almost every live show I’ve ever performed,” says Davids.
Though she eventually carved out a successful career as a chart-topping solo artist and a session vocalist for such artists as The Temptations, Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, Monica and Johnny Gill, in her earlier days Davids encountered resistance from many industry professionals who were unsure how to work with her because she looked and sounded so exactly alike Houston.
The ultimate realization of Davids’ affinity with Houston occurred during a show in Hong Kong. Following a recital of ‘I Will Always Love You’, the audience was so astounded by her performance that they demanded she sing acapella to prove she wasn’t lip-syncing to a Houston track.
Now representing her idol on stage, Davids feels destined: “I’ve essentially prepared my whole life for this show and I feel privileged to be able to honour Whitney in such a way.”
