With this summer's release of her second album, Whitney Houston has realized a dream -- to sing with her mother, Cissy Houston. The elder Houston, a respected gospel and blues singer, performs with her daughter in a heartfelt duet, I Know Him So Well, on the Whitney album. Emerging from a music-oriented background that includes her 53-year-old mother, first cousin Dionne Warwick and family friend Aretha Franklin, Houston, 23, exploded onto the music scene in 1985 with a debut album, Whitney Houston, which sold 18 million copies worldwide. Says Houston: "My mother is my teacher, my adviser -- she's my greatest inspiration."
