Whitney - Starring Geri Defoe
GERI DEFOE'S THRILLING TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY HOUSTON
Whitney Houston was born into a musical family, in Newark, NJ, in 1963. Her mother, Cissy Houston, was a member of The Sweet Inspirations, a popular female R&B trio, on Atlantic Records. Her aunts, Dionne, and Dee Dee Warwick were recording stars and her godmother, Darlene Love, was the lead singer of the 60s recording group The Crystals. So it's no surprise that Whitney gravitated toward the entertainment business.
Whitney Houston initially caught the public's eye in the 80s as the first highly successful black, female model, appearing in the trend-setting magazines Seventeen, Glamour and Cosmopolitan. In 1983, she signed with Arista Records and made her national television debut on The Merv Griffin Show. Numerous late-night TV show appearances followed.
Whitney Houston has been called the most awarded woman of all time. Her amazing awards collection includes multiple American Music, MTV, Grammy, Soul Train, Brit, Billboard and NAACP awards. Her recordings sold in the millions, her TV appearance was watched by more millions and her concert tours were invariably sellouts. She also became a movie star, appearing in Waiting To Exhale, The Preacher's Wife and of course The Bodyguard, which featured her version of Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You, the biggest recording hit ever by a female artist, selling more than 20 million copies.
Born in England, Geraldine Geri Defoe of Mississauga, Ontario, began her musical career singing in stage shows like Hairspray, Rag Time and All Shook Up. During one of these performances, Veteran Toronto area showman Frank Rondell, best known for his bang-on tribute to Ray Charles, noticed Geri's resemblance to Whitney Houston and marveling at her clear, soulful voice, asked if she would like to portray Whitney as the opening act at his shows. Not one to shrink from a challenge, she accepted Frank's offer and a great new show was born. Since then, Whitney has developed into an exciting show on its own, drawing sellout crowds in Ontario and gradually building a following across Canada and in the USA. We're thrilled to welcome Geri to Incanto!
