Whitney Houston: It’s almost impossible to overstate how badly Houston was dissed by Grammy voters in this year’s balloting. She and her Svengali,Clive Davis, were so eager for some Grammy love that they moved up the release date of her first studio album in years to Aug. 31 in order to make it eligible for Grammy consideration. What did that tactic get them? Goose egg. “I Look to You” was shut out not only from Album of the Year, but also from all other categories.”LET’S KEEP WHITNEY LIFTED IN PRAYER!!
