Description

    Whitney Houston Whitney Houston RIAA (3x) Platinum Record 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 Lieberman Dallas to Commemorate the Sale of More Than 3,000,000 Copies of the Arista Records Album and Cassette 'Whitney Houston.'" With slight scuffing and tarnish to the metal frame, the award is in Fine condition, and measures 16.5" x 20.5".
