The loss of Whitney Houston, one of music’s most powerful voices, has everyone belting soulful classics in remembrance of her undeniable legacy. From the unforgettable ballad I Will Always Love You to the upbeat feel-good song I’m Every Woman, how could anyone not fall head over heels in love with her sound? She had a gift that touched the hearts of people from all walks of life, and it’ll never be forgotten.

Since Philly is home to a number of powerhouse divas, it’s only natural that a tribute be done in Whitney’s honor. When we say this tribute is the real deal, we mean it! Creative Ambassador Carol Riddick, Helen Bruner & Terry Jones, Jaguar Wright, Leah Smith, Jean Baylor and more will grace the stage at Warmdaddy’s to pay homage to one of the industry’s most celebrated artists. Philly 360˚ will definitely be in the house for this one!

Tickets will only be sold on a first-come-first-served basis the night of the show. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Click here for more info.

Philly 360˚ Shout Out: Much love to the Lyn Brown Music Group for pulling together an awesome lineup for this tribute!
