Whitney Houston: I Didn't Know My Own Strength

Check out Whitney Houston‘s new song “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength,” off her highly-anticipated new album, I Look To You, out September 1. Download here!

Here’s the lyrics to the chorus: “I didn’t know my own strength/ And I crashed down and I tumbled/ But I did not crumble/ I got through all the pain/ I didn’t know my own strength/ Survived my darkest hour/ My faith kept me alive/ I picked myself back up/ Hold my head up high/ I was not built to break/ I didn’t know my own strength.”

FYI: Whitney, 45, will kick-off Good Morning America‘s fall concert series in September!

    this is going to be such a big year for her and Mariah. Maybe they’ll do another collaboration because that would be so awesome! it would have been an even bigger year if MJ was still alive, but he is with the angels now and in no more pain. God Bless you MJ and whitney!

    Her voice sounds huskier but still quality. The song itself is good, although I would have preferred a more up tempo first release. I hope things go really well for her.

    Whitney’s so pretty. This song is almost necessary to make a comeback with. It’s not my favorite but it’s good to hear she’s back. Her voice is very raw here. I am going to buy this when it comes out.

    Our girl’s back! She sounds great – huskier, as another post said – but good. She’ll retrain those pipes to hit those high notes.
    Glad you’re back, Miss Whitney.

    jeffrey Watson Says:

    this song is a whitney version of Mariahs Through the Rain, song, in ’02 when she came back, unfortunetely the song and album flopped due to the fact that no one really cares for sappy songs about overcoming adversity anymore, the song is good, but not “Whitney POW, I’m BACK”, but thats not what matters and as long as Whitney is happy, thats really matters!!!!

    One big mess, that’s how I describe it. I feel so sorry for her fans. They must be really disappointed. :roll:
