Whitney Houston

The LAST Recorded Song

breaking news



0521_whitney_songThe VERY last song Whitney Houston ever recorded has finally been released ... a duet with Jordin Sparks ... which Whitney performed just 4 days before her death.

The song is called "Celebrate" -- from her upcoming movie "Sparkle" in which she plays Jordin's mother.

After Whitney died, officials found evidence of hardcore drug use in her hotel room and in her system ... but producer Harvey Mason Jr. didn't seem to think her addiction had an affect on the quality of her performance.

Mason Jr. told People.com, Houston was "really positive" during the recording ... saying, "We ended the session dancing around the control room while she said 'Turn it up! Turn it up!' She was so fun-loving."

The movie is scheduled to be released in August.

Not enough of a sample to really evaluate, but her voice does sound a bit over-produced and re-mixed.

She doesn't sound that bad. Yes I agree her lifestyle affected her voice and she sounds nothing like from the 80's, 90's and even early 2000s but she could still sing better then those so called pop stars out there today

That doesn't really sound like Whitney. Her voice is more raspy.

I love the last bit ""We ended the session dancing around the control room while she said 'Turn it up! Turn it up!' She was so fun-loving."

fun-loving should be replaced with "high"
