Whitney Houston — Soundtrack: The Preacher’s Wife (1996)

whitney preachersBy Scott Goldfine

Pop superstar Whitney Houston follows up her enormously successful “The Bodyguard” project of four years ago with another soundtrack from a film in which she stars. “The Preacher’s Wife” is easily the most accomplished release of Houston’s record-setting career.

The 15-song set includes enough dramatic ballads to please fans, while detractors will be won over by several vibrant gospel numbers.
