    Whitney Houston's first-ever live album is on the way. Her producer and mentor Clive Davis has compiled audio and video footage from the powerhouse diva's most memorable gigs in the form of Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances. A CD x DVD is due out in November.

    The singer died in February 2012 at 48. We still miss her tons.

    Davis is assembling this package so people can remember Houston at her best. Since her last few years were marred by drugs, people tend to focus on that and not the talented diva that she was.

    Davis said, "Stemming from the '80s or '90s, she, without question, was the greatest vocalist in the world. I want history to know that...Whitney, in the last two or three years of her life, was not in the best form, so memories are short. This CD/DVD will establish that there was no one like her. It's a phenomenal album."

    Davis and the singer's gospel singing mother Cissy Houston, as well as her manager and sister-in-law Patricia Houston teamed up to put the album together. But it was a difficult task.

    He said, "It was bittersweet. On the one hand, I, who was there, still marvel at these incredible live performances. This is her first live album... It was a marvel that she was as powerful and incredible as she was, but bittersweet because she died too young."

    All true, Mr. Davis. All true.
