It is almost impossible to believe that the world lost Whitney Houston more than a decade ago. One of the most memorable voices of all time, and an icon of song and screen, she was taken far too soon. However, in her too-brief time as an artist, she contributed dozens of iconic songs that remain classic for decades to come. Whitney is gone, but never forgotten. Now, as part of our ongoing Divas series, the Great Pop Culture Debate wants to determine: What is the Best Whitney Houston Song of all time?

Listen as Host Eric Rezsnyak and GPCD panelists Amma Marfo, Derek Mekita, and Gary Jackson discuss and debate 16 of the most notable Whitney Houston songs of all time, ultimately naming their favorite of the bunch.
