OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network Remembers Whitney Houston With Two Hour Special Thursday, February 16 at 9 PM ET/PT

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In memory of Whitney Houston, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will present a special two hour "Remembering Whitney: The Oprah Interview," with the music legend's last in-depth television interview from "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to air this Thursday, February 16 from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.

This special television event, what is arguably Houston's most revealing and compelling interview of her career, will be rebroadcast as Winfrey reflects on her personal memories of the iconic superstar and shares with fans the magic of a musical icon who has gone too soon.

In September 2009 for the "The Oprah Winfrey Show" season 24 premiere, Winfrey sat down with Houston for a special one-on-one interview. After nearly seven years since the world heard the music icon's voice, Houston gave an intimate and poignant performance of "I Didn't Know My Own Strength." She shared only with Winfrey the private struggles she tried to hide from public view and discussed openly about her marriage to R&B star Bobby Brown, her struggles with drug abuse and why she retreated from the spotlight. Opening up to Winfrey like never before, Houston also spoke candidly of the day she left her husband, her sorrow over the death of Michael Jackson and her hopes for her future.
