    Whitney Houston - Journal Containing Her Personal Notes for Acceptance Speech at BET Awards, 2001. A ragpaper journal containing notes, penciled in Whitney's hand, pertaining to her acceptance speech of her Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 BET awards. On the inside cover is an inspirational personal note to Whitney from her mother, Cissy Houston. Measures approximately 7" x 8", in Excellent condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Estate of Whitney E. Houston.

    Whitney Houston was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 BET Awards, and ever the woman of faith, the notes for her acceptance speech name her "Almighty Lord & Savior" first and foremost among those she'd thank, with several Arista associates mentioned later. Keeping with that positive theme is the note inside from Houston's mother, which reads in part: "God can change anything...God loves you...For the Lord is good and his mercy everlasting." An incredibly personal artifact from a huge moment in the legendary performer's career.
