Whitney Houston's Previously Vaulted Track Calls Fans to Commit to Christ

Whitney Houston

Ahead of the December 23 theatrical release of TriStar Pictures' Whitney Houston biopic, Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody, RCA Records has dropped the official 35-song soundtrack, serving as a musical memoir of the cinematic voyage. One of the previously unreleased songs is Houston's rendition of the Gospel classic "Tomorrow." A song that reminds us not to wait in making a commitment to Jesus, you can listen to "Tomorrow (featuring Samaria)" below.

Jesus said
"Here I stand, won't you please take my hand?"
And you said
"I will tomorrow"
Jesus said
"I am he who supplies all your needs"
And you said
"I know, but tomorrow, ooh, tomorrow, I'll give my life tomorrow
I thought about today, but it's so much easier to say"
Tomorrow, who promised you tomorrow?
You better choose the Lord today
For tomorrow very well might be too late 

Also included on the soundtrack are three rare versions of "Don't Cry For Me" - a never-before-released a cappella, a full-length film version by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, and a reimagined recording by record producer Sam Feldt. Houston's iconic performance of the song was made famous after a striking rendition at the 1994 Aids Project Los Angeles (APLA) benefit concert - a moment that would stun the audience and go down in history as one of the most memorable performances of Whitney Houston's illustrious career.

"I am extremely honored and proud to have been asked to reimagine a track made by all-time legend Whitney Houston," says Sam Feldt. "Being a key part of this unique movie's soundtrack by turning this classic into a 2023 ready dance-pop banger is an absolute pleasure, and I can't wait for the fans to hear it."

"I'm beyond excited for the fans and the next generation of fans to experience the greatness of Whitney and what her voice meant and still means to all of us," says Rodney Jerkins.

One of the most iconic and influential singers in music history, Houston sold over 200 million albums throughout her legendary career, to become one of the best-selling artists of the 20th century. Her self-titled debut album, Whitney Houston was one of the most acclaimed albums in modern recording history, spending 14 weeks at #1 on Billboard Top 200 and selling more than twenty-five million copies worldwide. The streak continued when Houston became the first female artist to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 with her sophomore album, Whitney.

Together, the two albums spurred seven #1 singles with a catalog of hits that include, "Saving All My Love for You," "How Will I Know," "Greatest Love of All," "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," "Didn't We Almost Have It All," "So Emotional," and "Where Do Broken Hearts Go." A run that would lead Houston to become the only Black artist to earn three RIAA Diamond-certified albums.

On February 10, Legacy Recordings, in cooperation with The Estate of Whitney E. Houston, will release the icon's first two studio albums on vinyl, featuring the original album packaging and an exclusive Target edition - both available for pre-order HERE.
