Whitney Houston One Wish: The Holiday Album (Arista) Rating: NN
The ecstatic bedside picture on the cover of One Wish looks like part of Fresh Jive's found Polaroid erotica series. Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, nervously sings the first verse of The Little Drummer Boy. Houston's own funky version of Joy To The World is tackier than Rip Taylor wearing a lei in a room with Burberry wallpaper, but through it all she's still got that patented Whitney voice. What does that mean? It means this disc started playing in Wal-Marts and dentists' offices in November.
