Whitney Houston is one of the greatest musicians of all time but before her rise to fame, she sang the backing track on a television commercial for an American chain restaurant.
Whitney Houston sang a track on a Steak and Ale restaurant advert and it appears to be from 1980. This means that Whitney would’ve been in her late teens and her distinctive and unforgettable vocals were yet to be recognized in the music industry.
The advert shows different groups of people meeting up to enjoy food at one of the restaurants. Whitney’s stunning vocal compliments the footage well as she sings about how everything is “unmistakably” related to Steak and Ale.
Gospel and soul legend CeCe Winans mentioned that she recalled hearing Whitney’s unique vocal in the advert.
