Video: Whitney Houston’s First Performance in Houston

The late Whitney Houston didn’t make a lot of appearances here in Houston, but here’s one of her early stops.

She was opening for Luther Vandross, fresh off the release of her debut self-titled album.

It was August 1985 at the Summit.

Houston would return to play the Summit a few more times in her career, but there’s something magical about this particular clip; she’s a fresh-faced 22 year-old talent on the verge of super stardom.

If only she could have held on to that youthful innocence.
