Her Persistence

With 200 million records sold worldwide and millions of dollars generated, Whitney could’ve retired in the 1980s as a legend. But she persisted into the ’90s, bringing a second chapter to her career with the best-selling soundtrack to The Bodyguard; the 2000s, updating her sound with help from Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys; and even the new decade, playing a supporting role in Sparkle.
