Denzel Washington: ‘Whitney Houston Is Clean and Clear’

Oscar winner Denzel Washington has praised his The Preacher’s Wife costar Whitney Houston for overcoming her drug habit, hailing the singer “clean and clear.”

The Malcolm X actor has kept in touch with Houston since they starred in the 1996 romantic drama together and says Houston is preparing to make a big comeback.

Washington says, “I’ve talked with Whitney a few times since I was in New Orleans. She’s made a decision to turn her life around and I’m just praying for her. She’s been clean and clear for months now and I just know she’s going to explode.

“People love her. She’s one of the greatest voices of her generation and she’s had a rough life. She’s on the right path and I just pray she continues on that path.

“We all go through some things in life. As they say, ‘There’s no testimony without a test.’ So she has one and as I said, I pray and I believe she’s going to come through.

“Clive (Davis–Houston‘s record producer) knows it. He’s no dummy. He’s right there and probably in the studio making great music.”
