THE late, great Whitney Houston's back catalogue gets dusted off as The Greatest Love Of All returns to Clacton.

South African songstress Belinda Davids is back at the Princes Theatre with a two-hour show packed with 20 of the diva's mega hits.

Houston was found dead at the Hilton in Beverley Hills in 2012, aged just 48.

She was one of the best-selling singerfs of all time with 200 million record sales.

Davids happily admits Houston is her personal idol and was the original inspiration for her own career when she started singing professionally at the age of 14.

She beat off competition from almost 15,000 other hopefuls to land her dream role.

“I want people to come and remember Whitney when she was at the top of her game and when she was fabulous”, said Davids, whose voice has been described as “jaw-droppingly similar” to Houston's.

“I’ve essentially prepared my whole life for this show and I feel privileged to be able to honour Whitney in such a way.”

The show covers all of Houston's 29-year career, including I Will Always Love You, Greatest Love of All, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, I Have Nothing, One Moment In Time, Run To You, Saving All My Love, Queen of the Night, Million Dollar Bill and I’m Every Woman.

It also features a seven-piece live band, choreographed dancers, exquisite replica costuming and state-of-the-art lighting and effects which combine to create a spectacular concert experience.

Davids has played sell-out concerts across the world and has dates booked for the Hollywood Bowl in 2018.

She currently on a 24-date UK tour which brings her to the Princes this Saturday at 7.30pm. Tickets are £30.50 from the box office on 01255 686633.
