Houston's record breaking career is perhaps one of the most decorated and celebrated of all time. With over 170 million records sold and over 400 plus awards won -- Houston has earned her legendary status.
Though her most recent past has been rocky -- filled with drug and alcohol abuse, and several stints in rehab -- she stands a good chance of getting back on top.
Both fans and Terry McMillian, author of the "Waiting to Exhale" franchise, are hopeful she will be ready to return to showbiz soon. She's expected to return to the silver screen for the sequel to "Waiting to Exhale," called "Getting to Happy."
Join us in wishing the one and only Whitney Houston, Happy Birthday!
