ROBYN CRAWFORD'S MEMOIR ABOUT WHITNEY HOUSTON

Robyn Crawford was a lifelong friend and former lover of the music legend Whitney Houston.

When the latest documentary about Houston was released, focusing on the dark, drug-ridden last days of the star's life, Crawford wanted to set the record straight, and salvage her friend's legacy.

Houston and Crawford met in1980 as teens and fell in love. Fearful that exposure of a same-sex relationship would affect her career, the singer ended the romance - but not the friendship.

Crawford's memoir "A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston" is a testament to that friendship and the singer's devotion to her art.
