    Whitney Houston Canadian "Gold" Record Award for "How Will I Know", 1986. With plaque reading "Presented to Whitney Houston to Commemorate the Sale of over 50,000 Units of the Arista Single 'How Will I Know', March 1986". Framed under plexiglass to an overall 9.5" x 12.25". In Fine condition, with some warping to the gold disc, and some bubbling to the disc's label. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Estate of Whitney E. Houston.

    "How Will I Know" was released in November 1985 as the third single from her debut album. The song was originally offered to Janet Jackson, but she passed on it. Whitney and producer Narada Michael Walden made some slight changes to the song. The track's music video helped to break Whitney Houston to the MTV audience.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
