Ok... I can admit it now and not feel crazy and given the side eye. When I FIRST watched Classic Whitney I was bored to TEARS! I was like what are these songs? Who the hell is Alfie and why the hell is she singing to him? I'm thinking ok, where is Queen Of The Night? Where is How Will I Know? Hell you coulda gave me Love Is A Contact Sport and SLAMMED my BLEEP! all night if you wanted to. LOL But NOW... Now I LOVE that concert. It's a staple in my car whenever I go on a road trip. I can sing it forward and backward, One of my fave performances was that night's Exhale when she had Monica to sing (Monica ya'll Monica! In the hoooooouse..,) and Krissi coming on stage. LOVED that moment. (DAAAAD DID IT!)
LOL I feel so young because I was like 9 years old when CW happened & so it wasn't until I was like 16 or 17 that I REALLY got to get into CW! I grew up in a house that ADORED Dionne, Diana, & Aretha so I knew all of the songs, esp Alfie my mother used to sing that one all the time when I was little lol
Love is what we make it
We can make it something lovely
So don't desert me
Instead, learn to trust me
And love is what we make it
So let's make it, love

I think that was the general consensus of this concert--boredom. I remember dozing off during the Jazz medley! LOL!

And that is what I like about her voice, she's always able to do something with it to kill a song, when her range is not coming up due sickness or anything else. Whitney is not one of those vocalists who have to rely entirely on their range to pull a song. She's a COMPLETE vocalist, and there's just so much to her voice even when her upper registers don't work!!
