Twenty-one years ago, an aspiring female vocalist named Whitney Houston was about to go huge.

Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" hit No.1 on the Billboard charts and remained there for two weeks in 1987. Also that year, her self-titled album "Whitney" debuted at No. 1, the first time an album by a female artist had done so. (Mario Suriani/AP Photo)
