(BlackMediaScoop) Whitney Houston’s mother isn’t the only person writing a book on the superstar. Gospel star BeBe Winans, who sang at Whitney Houston’s funeral, announced this week he has written “The Whitney I Knew,” due out July 31.
The book promises what is described as “heart-breaking accounts that led to her ultimate defeat.” It will also include photos and personal videos of the singer never released to the public.
Winans and his family knew Houston for years. His announcement comes as he prepares to release a new album, “America America” next week.
Houston died at the age of 48 in February. Authorities called her death an accidental drowning, complicated by heart disease and cocaine use.
