“I’m a little bit of a perfectionist…I won’t say [covering a classic] was easy, but it was fun,” Whitney said.

Her singing videos during the pandemic garnered the attention of PJ Morton’s management team. After months of contact, they finally decided to work together.

“I got a message from PJ’s manager…at first I thought it was a scam, but it wasn’t,” she laughed.

Whitney may owe her father, who named her “Whitney” after legendary vocalist Whitney Houston, a “thank you” for the success of her career.
