Whitney Houston died three years ago on Feb. 11, 2012. Join us in remembering the legendary singer with a look at her through the years.
November 1981: Before she focused on becoming a professional singer, Houston, born Aug. 9, 1963, in Newark, N.J., was an aspiring model. At the age of 17, she became one of the first black models to grace the cover of Seventeen magazine. She also appeared in the pages of Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Young Miss, and in a commercial for Canada Dry ginger ale, literally singing the praises of the drink.
