ABC To Air 20/20 Special About Whitney Houston This Friday Night

In the wake of the tragic death of pop singer and music icon Whitney Houston, ABC is set to air a special edition of 20/20, called One Moment in Time: The Life of Whitney Houston. Check out some photos and ABC’s official description for the special ahead.

It’s unfortunate but understandable that the death of Houston has revived interest in the highs and lows of the singer's career and personal life. From the sound of it, this Friday’s 20/20 will cover that, as well as the circumstances surrounding her death. Below is ABC’s official description for the special, which will include the interview Houston did with Diane Sawyer a decade ago. ABC also shared the photos further down, which feature Sawyer, Houston, Bobby Brown and their daughter.

A Special Edition of 20/20, "One Moment in Time: The Life of Whitney Houston,” will take an in-depth look at the voice of the century - from her record-setting achievements and musical legacy to her rocky personal life and battle with addiction. It will also include Diane Sawyer’s ground-breaking interview which was taped 10 years ago (11/7/2002) at her home in suburban Atlanta, as well as the latest developments about the superstar’s final days. The two-hour special airs on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17 (9-11pm, ET) on the ABC Television Network.
