Veteran artist and Broadway star Deborah Cox has been wowing audiences with her renditions of Whitney Houston classics in The Bodyguard musical.
Now, the Grammy-nominated singer has revealed that she has plans to release an EP of recorded versions of songs from the stage play.
“There will be a new EP coming out with eight songs, probably the most requested songs from the musical because everyone has asked will I do a soundtrack or a cast album, so this is the opportunity for people to hear me on the songs,” she told The Source. “It’ll be available towards the end of February.”

Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford signed an order Friday saying Gordon repeatedly failed to meet court deadlines in the case. The order says that means the conservator of her estate wins by default.

Hologram technology has grown in leaps and bounds and it is becoming a highly sought after new form of entertainment. Earlier this week it was announced that the famed Apollo Theater in Harlem will launch a Billie Holiday hologram.
Now, the greatest voice of all time-Whitney Houston-is being brought back in hologram form, and set to tour the world!
The company Hologram USA and Pat Houston, president of the Whitney Houston Estate, have partnered together to create the hologram of the late singer.
If you were a little standoffish on being a fan of Ariana Grande, we’re sure this performance will change your mind. While the singer has always been compared to elusive chanteuse Mariah Carey, it was in her recent cover of Whitney Houston’s 1993 single, “I Have Nothing,” that will make you nod your head in worthy approval.
Turning heads and watering eyes, the talented songstress perched herself upon a white piano in a white and lilac flowered cover dress and glittery shoes as she belted out lyrics to the classic single. Calling upon “one of the most incredible songwriters of all time” David Foster – who wrote and produced the single for Ms. Houston herself – the duo gave an outstanding rendition of the already timeless single.
Ready to be wowed? Take a look at the performance below:
Whitney Houston also known as “The Voice” was one of the most iconic singers of all time. Houston has sold an estimated 200 million records worldwide, and is the most awarded female act of all time. “Heartbreak Hotel” was released as the second single from her 1998 album My Love Is Your Love. The song features R&B singers Faith Evans and Kelly Price. “Heartbreak Hotel” reached the Top 30 of the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number one on Billboard ’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The song received two nominations at the 2000 Grammy Awards: Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance by a Group or Duo.
What makes the song so classic is that it contains 3 supreme R&B vocalists, and while Price and Evans back Houston, they also sell themselves grandly as empathetic friends on the track. Their vocals, soaring with emotion, helped keep the timeless Houston identifiable to a new generation of R&B fans. The three singers united for the purpose of soulful balladry.
Last week, Kelly Price hosted her 2nd Annual “For The Love of R&B” event in Los Angeles during Grammy week. This year’s event honored, as well as celebrated, Whitney Houston’s legacy with performances from Sevyn Streeter, Goapele, Faith Evans, Angie Fisher, Antonique Smith, B Slade and more. Price and Faith closed out the event by performing “Heartbreak Hotel” to roaring applause from the crowd.
