Her final Grammy was awarded in 2000 for the song "It's Not Right, But It's Okay." ( Full Answer )
If you are talking about how many songs she recorded, certainly in a career of several decades, it was more than a hundred. She had six studio albums, songs on several movie soundtracks, did a Christmas album, and also recorded live albums. And there are usually out-takes from each recording session…, songs that she recorded but did not make it onto an album. If you are asking how many songs she knew, that is a difficult question to answer, since she began as a singer in the choir of her local church and continued to sing on other people's records until she began her own solo career.

It debuted in the United States at #1 with opening week sales of over 500,00 and became Whitney's 4th chart topping album, extending her lead among female performers. Bizarrely, although this album outsold most o…f the albums of the last couple of years, there are people who consider it a flop because it did not produce at hit top 10 single. Clearly, it was a success. ( Full Answer )

According to Wikipedia, 80-85 million. According to the X Factor back in 2011, 120 million.
It is estimated Chaka Khan has sold at least 20 million albums, but that is only taking into account album sale totals from the year of their releases. A recount of her album sales from soundscan would be needed for a more accurate total.
The Dame herself touts 120 million, but reporting/tracking agencies say the number is closer to 80 million.
Madonna trumps Beyonce! Madonna has sold 275-300 millions copies and Beyonce has sold 75 million (BTW Rihanna has sold 80 million!)
She had one birth brother named Michael Houston, a step sister named Alana Houston and two stepbrothers named Gary Garland and John Russell Houston III.
One biological brother (Michael) and two half-brothers (Gary and John) from her mother's first marriage.

This is a difficult question to answer, if you are asking about her entire life: she began singing in church when she was a child, and also sang with her mother, a well-respected gospel vocalist. We may assume she knew how to sing many songs, having grown up around music throughout her childhood and… youth. But if you are talking about her professional career, from 1985 through 2009, she released ten albums that charted on the Billboard Magazine top 100. One of those albums, the soundtrack from "The Bodyguard," won a Grammy award. And after she died in 2012, her greatest hits album was reissued and became a big seller all over again. As for songs she sang before getting signed to a contract as a solo artist, we do know that in 1979, while still in high school, she sang backing vocals for "Life's A Party" by the Michael Zager Band. In 1983, she also sang on the Teddy Pendergrass single "Hold Me," which reached number 46 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in the summer of 1984. Whitney's own recordings, under her own name, were first issued after she was signed to Arista Records. Her first hit single was "You Give Good Love" (1985). From that time through the end of 2009, she had more than forty songs that charted in the top 100, including several collaborations with other artists (Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Faith Evans & Kelly Price). This total does not include songs she knew how to sing or sang live in concert but did not record, or songs she recorded that did not chart. But it would be safe to say she had hundreds of songs in her repertoire. ( Full Answer )
While Whitney Houston may have studied foreign languages in school, there is no evidence she was fluent in any language other than English.
There is only one that can be verified: according to magazine reports, Whitney Houston suffered a miscarriage in December 1996. As for information about other miscarriages, it is difficult to say, since the other stories are based on tabloid rumors, and there is no accurate way to fact-check those c…laims. ( Full Answer )
She had one biological brother (Michael) plus two half-brothers: one from her mother's first marriage (Gary) and one from her father's first marriage (John III).
She had one biological brother (Michael), plus two half-brothers (Gary, from her mother's first marriage; and John, from her father's first marriage); plus a half-sister (Alana) from her father's next marriage (he seems to have been married three times).
We know she had one child, and we also know she had at least one miscarriage. There are tabloid rumors that say she had several other miscarriages, but this is difficult to verify.
While Whitney did, in fact, record in 1977 as a 14 year-old as a back up singer on a record "Life's A Party" and at 15 on Chaka Khan's "I'm every Woman" mother Cissy insisted high school be the priority. MANY record deals were offered to her but to no avail as her mother was protective of Whitney's …education. Clive Davis signed her officially to her first recording contract in 1983. The world would have to wait to hear her professionally- her first release was a duet with Teddy Pendergrass that went to #5 on the R&B charts ("Hold Me" which was on his album). This song would also be featured on her debut album in 1985. ( Full Answer )
She had three. She had a son (Gary) from her first marriage, and then a son and a daughter (Michael and Whitney) in her second marriage.
According to court papers, Alana Houston, was not Whitney's biological sister, but a step-sister from her dad John's third marriage. Her brother Michael was her biological brother since he and Whitney had the same mother and father. Gary Garland Houston (same mother) and John III (same father) were …her step-brothers.

Whitney Houston was married to Bobby Brown from 1992 until their divorce in 2007. Together they had one child, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
The song was recorded early in 1992 (probably in April or May) and released in early November of that same year.

This gave her the recordfor "Most Simultaneous Hits on the U.K. Singles Chart by a SoloFemale." ( Full Answer )
By most accounts, the last song she recorded was "Celebrate," a duet with Jordin Sparks, scheduled to be used for the closing credits of the movie "Sparkle," in which Whitney was one of the stars. The song was written by R. Kelly, and recorded in early February 2012, just several weeks before her un…timely death.
