BeBe Winans met Whitney Houston in church 28 years ago, and they quickly developed a close bond. They considered each other family in the deepest sense of the word--hanging out in each other's homes, singing backup vocals for each other on albums, touring together. BeBe was with her when she was onstage and far from the spotlight, on the set and in the studio, through good times and the worst of times--and this very personal book takes readers inside all of those places to give a real and intimate picture of the Whitney he knew. Here readers will discover new information and insights into both Whitney's heart and her world--information that they will not find anywhere else. From profoundly moving moments to eye-opening accounts of triumph to the heart-breaking realities that led to her ultimate defeat, the stories are here, along with links to never-before-seen private videos of Whitney and a full-length photo section. In his moving tribute at her funeral, Winans reaffirmed that she will be remembered for her warm, lavish generosity, her faith, and her lighthearted humor--those positive truths that overshadow any negative missteps in recent years. "In my heart and in my mind, I have memories of so many great, great moments," he says. "She will live in our hearts forever."

Sufficient in JesusAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5December 15, 2012Sufficient in JesusAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Whitney I knew, by Bebe Winans. This biography of Whitney Houston is written by a dear friend of hers, Bebe Winans. Having loved Whitney's music for a long time I was blessed to be able to meet her through this book.
The best part of this book was the personal stories shared about Whitney, how family was so important to her and what a generous and wonderful person she was, even generously making a loan of 50,000 dollars to the author for the house he wanted to buy but didn't have the money for, never asking or expecting him to pay her back.
This book will open your eyes to the abuse of celebrities and how Whitney who craved deep loving relationships, was hurt by people who misused her and attacked her. It brought to light the fact that often the world abuses the people in the spotlight making incorrect assumptions about them and hating them for it, never comprehending that whatever their social status they are people too.
I doubt until reading this book anyone will know how close she was to the Winans, I certainly didn't. Bebe, Cece and all the Winans were her adopted brothers and sisters, who she could always count on to be there for her.
I was glad to see the way the author wrote wrote about her life, in a loving honest way, wanting the world to see past the tabloids and magazines and their lies and distortion to the true Whitney, also from a Christian perspective thus being able to write about her faith in God.
I would recommend this book that I so enjoyed to anyone who loves her or her music.
