Whitney Houston’s memory lives on forever.
Houston lived a life guided by her faith and religion, which is probably why she recorded an album dedicated to it and there is a documentary about her love for the gospels.
Just when fans thought they would never hear new material by the legendary singer, they were wrong.
Houston’s estate took their time curating and crafting the singer’s posthumous album for years before announcing its release to the public.
They finally announced that the album will be released later this year, but while fans wait, they can listen to “Testimony.”
According to reports, the upcoming album will boast six unreleased songs, and will mainly focus on gospel songs, which Good Morning America noted as her “first love.”
Songs that can be expected in the album include several songs from her movies “The Bodyguard,” “The Preacher’s Wife, ” and the 2012 remake of “Sparkle.”
“Jesus Loves Me, ” “Joy to the Word,” “Hold On, Help Is On the Way,” “I Go to the Rock,” and more.
The highly-anticipated six unreleased songs are Houston’s version of “Bridge Under Troubled Water” which will feature CeCe Winans, “This Day,” “He Can Use Me,” I Found a Wonderful Way, “He/I Believe,” and “Testimony.”
