After decades of silence, Robyn Crawford, close friend, collaborator, and confidante of Whitney Houston, shares her story.

Whitney Houston is as big a superstar as the music business has ever known. She exploded on the scene in 1985 with her debut album and spent the next two decades dominating the charts and capturing the hearts of fans around the world. One person was there by her side through it all—her best friend, Robyn Crawford.

Since Whitney’s death in 2012, Robyn has stayed out of the limelight and held the great joys, wild adventures, and hard truths of her life with Whitney close to her heart. Now, for the first time ever, Crawford opens up in her new memoir, A Song for You.

With warmth, candor, and an impressive recall of detail, Robyn describes the two meeting as teenagers in the 1980s, and how their lives and friendship evolved as Whitney recorded her first album and Robyn pursued her promising Division I basketball career. Together during countless sold-out world tours, behind the scenes as hit after hit was recorded, through Whitney’s marriage and the birth of her daughter, the two navigated often challenging families, great loves, and painful losses, always supporting each other with laughter and friendship.
Deeply personal and heartfelt, A Song for You is the vital, honest, and previously untold story that provides an understanding of the complex life of Whitney Houston. Finally, the person who knew her best sets the record straight.

A Song For You by Robin Crawford is an extraordinary autobiography that we highly recommended to any fan of Whitney Houston whose life long dream was to know what it's like to be her best friend. Honest and endearing, this book will have you celebrating the precious moments, crying at the lows ones, and thankful for a beautifully crafted end. Robyn guides us through her youth with Whitney, her own struggles with the declining health of her mother and siblings, and her journey to find herself in the process. Every word written in this book is an endearment to Robyn's mother, or her best friend Whitney. Never shying away from her own faults, Robyn details the struggles she faced as well as the poor, yet sometimes pure, choices that she made. The way she writes is a mix between conversational and lyrical, helping the story flow even when there is a part might have ebbed if seen in person. The pace is perfect and the emotions are raw yet refined. If you can, we highly recommend listening to the audio book as well. It's read by the author and the laughter in her voice when she talks fondly about Whitney, or the tremble that takes over when she reminisces about her mother, makes you feel like your aunt is right in front of you, telling you a story.
