After decades of silence, Robyn Crawford, close friend, collaborator, and confidante of Whitney Houston, shares her story.

Whitney Houston is as big a superstar as the music business has ever known. She exploded on the scene in 1985 with her debut album and spent the next two decades dominating the charts and capturing the hearts of fans around the world. One person was there by her side through it all—her best friend, Robyn Crawford.

Since Whitney’s death in 2012, Robyn has stayed out of the limelight and held the great joys, wild adventures, and hard truths of her life with Whitney close to her heart. Now, for the first time ever, Crawford opens up in her memoir, A Song for You.

With warmth, candor, and an impressive recall of detail, Robyn describes the two meeting as teenagers in the 1980s, and how their lives and friendship evolved as Whitney recorded her first album and Robyn pursued her promising Division I basketball career. Together during countless sold-out world tours, behind the scenes as hit after hit was recorded, through Whitney’s marriage and the birth of her daughter, the two navigated often challenging families, great loves, and painful losses, always supporting each other with laughter and friendship.
Deeply personal and heartfelt, A Song for You is the vital, honest, and previously untold story that provides an understanding of the complex life of Whitney Houston. Finally, the person who knew her best sets the record straight.

    It was a beautiful complete story of everything we all encounter in life. I just can’t say enough; it has love, triumph, loss, addiction, therapy, it’s the full human experience. You will see yourself somewhere in this story. It was amazing.

    I think Robyn's book is the most honest book to come out about Whitney. Robyn was unselfish to a fault with a very tender heart, and above all she is incredibly smart and very driven. This is by far the best Whitney book I have read by far. Although I have read Bobby Brown's book and at the time thought he was a nice guy. He claimed to never hit women are took a penny from Whitney, all I can say he was a legend in his own mind. Robyn gives more so much more detail into the real Whitney and we get to see the side of the entertainment industry. She discovered Silvia, was a big part of Whitney's success that she doesn't give herself enough credit for. I loved this book and fell in love with Robyn the person she was and is. So happy she has gone on to have real love with Lisa and her children.
