Whitney Houston Lifts Off in New York

After bringing the house to its feet in London last week, Whitney Houston previewed her new album, I Look to You, in New York City on Tuesday. Everyone from Whitney’s mother Cissy to Martha Stewart to Dionne Warwick gathered at Lincoln Center to hear the diva’s first studio album in seven years.

Rumored couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were on hand to hear the song they wrote and produced, “Million Dollar Bill,” played over the speakers. Alicia even whipped out her camera to capture the moment.
