White on White Crime: An Unspoken Tragedy

The ugly truth is white on white crime does exist. It is a growing pandemic in the white community, and if we don't call attention to this problem soon, there will be no more white people left to run the world.

Whitney Houston: Returning to the AMAs in a Big Way

Comments (22)


Whitney Houston is ready to show just how strong she is on prime-time television.

On Nov. 22, the 46-year-old entertainer will sing her Diane Warren-penned ballad 'I Didn't Know My Own Strength' on the 37th annual American Music Awards telecast. The song is a featured single from Houston's seventh studio album 'I Look to You,' which debuted atop the charts and marks the biggest first-week sales of her career.

The 'I Will Always Love You' singer's AMA performance will be her first time on the show in a decade. She previously performed 'Until You Come Back' and 'My Love Is Your Love,' with Babyface and Wyclef Jean, on the 1999 telecast. It will also mark Houston's first prime-time U.S. network performance in five years since appearing on the 'World Music Awards' in 2004.

According to a rep for Dick Clark Productions, Houston will also be presented with the American Music Awards International Artist Award in recognition of "special artists who have gone beyond the borders of their own country to be acknowledged for their superstar status around the globe." She will be the eighth honoree to join an elite group of award-winning recipients, including Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Led Zeppelin, the Bee Gees, Aerosmith, Madonna and Beyoncé.

Previously announced American Music Award acts include Rihanna, Green Day, Shakira, Mary J. Blige, Keith Urban, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, The Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Daughtry and Adam Lambert. The American Music Awards will broadcast live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

Whitney Houston Through The Years
Just Whitney
Since releasing her 1985 self-titled debut, Whitney Houston has become one of the best-selling female artists of all time.

On the cusp of Houston's latest comeback album, 'I Look to You,' Blackvoices.com takes a look at the singer throughout the years.
