Description

    Whitney Houston RIAA (3x) Platinum Album Sales Award (Arista AL 8-8212, 1985). Initially a slow-burn success, Whitney Houston's eponymous debut album went on, just as the rest of her recorded output, to be a phenomenal chart-buster, going platinum 13 times over (earning a diamond certificate from the RIAA) and garnering several awards. After Houston's untimely passing in 2012, this classic Pop/R&B album once again entered the Billboard 200, 25 years after its initial release! This beautifully framed award celebrates the three million mark for the LP, with a plaque below the platinum disc and cassette tape reading: "Presented to David Rubinson to Commemorate the Sale of More Than 3,000,000 Copies of the Arista Records Album and Cassette 'Whitney Houston'". Framed in chrome to an overall 17" x 21". In Excellent condition.
