The Whitney Houston Story

The Whitney Houston Story


One Moment in Time
The Greatest Hits of Whitney Houston
Starring Nya King with her World Class Singers & Musicians

The story that is never told about Whitney is just how uniquely
brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures she had the
greatest voice of the last 50 years. She changed the way pop music
was sung bringing it back full circle to blues and gospel roots. Her legacy was her music and we celebrate her life and songs with a
musical concert dedicated to the legend that is Whitney Houston.

While raised on a diverse musical diet of many of the world’s greatest
vocal stars, which is reflected in her many shows in the UK, Europe and
Africa, the incomparable, three times winner of the UK National Tribute
Awards, “NYA KING” brings her amazing Soul & R&B Style, influenced
by Southern African Soul, to the Stage.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the unprecedented and unrivalled God-
Given Voice of Whitney Elizabeth Houston has been Nya’s biggest
influence and inspiration from childhood. With this in mind you will
witness an outstanding first class performance with her mind-blowing
tribute, capturing the true spirit, passion, style, moves and with
infectious personality, the mellifluous voice of “NYA KING” pays
homage with this sensational powerhouse presentation to an
unforgotten soul and pop legend, the late great lady herself
Whitney Houston (One of the greatest singers of all time)...

Direct from a sell out tour in Germany, Nya offers all the fans the
opportunity to experience a moving tribute to the musical life of
“Whitney Houston”, reliving that magical presence that Whitney
provided on stage creating that amazing illusion for the audience. Along
with a lot of hard work, passion and vocal techniques, her vocal range
can deliver the classics with all the Dance – Super hits, the Great
Ballads and of course the songs from the Bodyguard Honours that we
all love of Whitney Houston.

This is an emotional show and a spectacular trailblazing musical
testament to the most iconic pop, soul, R&B Diva of all time.
