How many of you knew of this??? -_-





I know Whitney's part is quite short in that song!! But her voice SHINES there!!! :shocked:

I remember I'd seen Whitney's part of this song a couple of years back in a video montage, but then I couldn't find it on Youtube after that as I didn't know what it was a part of! I thought it was a Christmas commercial. I FINALLY 'just' found it, after MONTHS of searching!!! Only if I knew the name...

I don't think it has been brought up recently. I think I saw this one in the Rare Videos thread, if I'm not mistaken. Yes, Whitney does shine here. Not my favorite sing, though (I just listen for Whitney's parts). Her voice was really on fire.

I didn't know it either... so nice to see something from the early days! :thumbup:

I guess this was the first project that Whitney worked on with Bobby.

Please don't waste your time watching the whole thing - it's horrible.

Skip to approximately 2:12, 3:13 and 4:18 to see Whitney.

Just like when she sang Hold Up The Light with the Winans. She completely KILLED her parts in that song.

Nah, no skipping. sing sing for the king.

I love this charming 80s snapshot of pop culture. Heaps of cuties in there, cool beats, cool vibes, cool super cute 80s whitney fade in superimposed effects lol, (cause she was 2 busy steppin in kick butt zone all over the world). I read somewhere that MLK's son dexter more or less picked the acts he wanted, nice. Stay cool y'all. Posted Image

A Brave heart is a Powerful weapon. A Voice inspires the Way. One Love. Whitney forever

Nawh, Im an 80s child too but that song is just aweful! Sometimes it even seemed like some of the singers were off key. Horrible, I prefer the skipping to Whitney's parts
