Whitney Houston

Letterman had a history of providing a platform for up and coming artists, who were on their way to becoming some of the biggest names in music. In 1985, Whitney Houston released her debut album Whitney, which featured her hit single "Saving All My Love." She was already gaining notoriety for her unprecedented vocals, but her career peaked after she performed the song on the Late Show that same year.
