Editorial Reviews

Este concerto, realizado no dia 12 de novembro de 1994, no Ellis Park, em Johannesburg, encerrou uma série de três apresentações que a diva Whitney Houston fez em homenagem ao presidente Nelson Mandela, celebrando também a recém ocorrida unificação da África do Sul e o fim do apartheid. Whitney cantou para mais de 200 mil pessoas e toda a renda dos shows foi destinada a instituições de ajuda humanitária e orfanatos daquela região. Aqui, a dona de uma das mais poderosas vozes da música americana canta seus grandes sucessos, entre eles "So Emotional", "I'm Every Woman" e o hino romântico "I Will Always Love You". DVD 1.

I bought a copy of this concert brand new for $12 last year, and I must say it's simply is an amazing show! It should be a MUST HAVE DVD for any true Whitney fan. Whitney was in top form during this performance, and she put it down only as Whitney can on so many of her classic hits. A talent like this only comes along once in a lifetime (if you're lucky).

Set List:
--------
1. Love's In Need Of Love Today
2. So Emotional
3. Saving All My Love For You
4. I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)
5. How Will I Know
6. Love Medley: All At Once, Where You Are
7. Lover For Life
8. My Name Is Not Susan
9. Sounds Of Africa
10. I Have Nothing
11. Touch The World
12. Love Is
13. Amazing Grace
14. Master Blaster
15. I Will Always Love You
16. I'm Every Woman
17. Greatest Love Of All
18. Home
19. I'm Every Woman (Reprise)

Approx Runtime - 119 Minutes
Picture Ratio - 4:3
My Quality Rating - 7/10

Don't be fooled by some messed up sellers online who are gouging Whitney fans by trying to sell this concert for literally thousands of dollars, as it is NOT an official studio release. Regardless of the packaging company, this concert is a VHS transfer. Whitney owned the master tapes for the concert since she conceived the idea and paid for it's production back in 1994. Currently her record label is trying to find out what happened to the masters so they can prepare a proper high quality official release. My fingers are crossed that someday a blu-ray edition will come along.

After all is said is done, she was an incredible artist with an angelic voice that blessed the earth with it's presence for nearly 30 years.

This South African concert marked the end of Whitney's 1994 world tour - an outstanding performance by Whitney. Watching this concert, you could actually feel her joy, happiness and love the entire time she was on stage.

Whitney sang a number of her well known ballads, though did her own remix for each song. She knocked each and every song totally out of the park, and used her great gift of vocal gymnastics to the fullest. To date, there is no one who can even begin to come close to Whitney's vocal magic.

The concert was recorded from a live satellite feed then transfered to DVD. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give this a 9, and say - if you are a Whitney fan, this is a must have DVD. You will not regret owning it.

I had this video, but it was given away by accident. It is amazingly beautiful and Whitney is nothing short of a singing angel. I highly recommend to anyone considering purchase. I would purchase again myself if it were available.

Had this dvd & was really disappointed with the picture quality. It is simply recorded from a vhs, the picture is grainy, not clear at all! Wonder what those people were thinking when they put this dvd out. The concert is nice but the recording really spoils everything!

It was great to be able to own a piece of the legacy Whitney Houston has left behind, in a full concert. But I was a little disappointed with the picture quality. Overall I am a big fan and will miss this remarkable talent and "VOICE" for any future recordings. But her memory will live on within my heart and within my home each time I watch this concert! I rate her performance 5 stars. The video production quality 4 stars.

I thought it was very good and well done, I almost thought the way it was packaged that it was brand new and not recorded frm a VHS to DVD. I Also thought it could've been a little clearer but I do understand that It's frm a VHS and back then the color wasn't as sharp as it is now. I loved it, it brought back memories! :-)

I have to start by saying r.i.p poor whitney!!! you were the best and i miss you.

Total whitney fan,this is whitney at her best! Fantastic concert,however the transfer from vhs to dvd is extremely poor! If had not been that i love whitney i would not have kept this dvd!

yet i have a concert which is 91 three years older than this and it is great quality! total confusion.

If anyone can get this better quality please please contact me! email is mollybecky29@yahoo.co.uk
much appreciated!
otherwise buy this and tweet your settings a bit on tv- colour,contrast,sharpness etc .It does make a good difference.
Enjoy!

Her voice her instrument
Played without peer
With emotion, with grace, with unparalleled skill

No apologies needed for Louis
Ella, Frank, or Billie

Eons from now wondering
About the sound of these times
The one they will turn to
Whitney Elizabeth Houston

A solitary voice
Above the modern madness
A voice of humanity and love

Her cross carried with dignity
Her burden heavy

She's gone home now

Listening every day
O kindred soul
The tears continue to fall
