Oprah: Houston interview is best she's ever done
Talk show host Oprah Winfrey calls her upcoming sit-down with singer Whitney Houston "the best interview I've ever done."
Winfrey said Monday in comments provided to The Associated Press by Harpo Productions that she "can't think of a moment, ever, when I had a stronger connection to the person I was interviewing."
According to Harpo Productions, Houston's daughter and producer Clive Davis attended the interview.
Houston also is to perform her new song "I Didn't Know My Own Strength."
The 46-year-old superstar hasn't done a major TV interview since 2002, when she addressed questions about her drug use from ABC's Diane Sawyer.
Winfrey kicks off the 24th season of Chicago-based "The Oprah Winfrey Show" with the two-part interview with Houston on Sept. 14 and 15.
訪談裡也會邀請惠媽的恩師Clive老爹及惠媽愛女小芭比，來談惠媽。惠媽在節目中也有獻唱新專輯中的勵志單曲"I Didn't Know My Own Strength"及福音歌曲"I Love The Lord"。

Whitney Opens Up to Oprah Like Never Before
WHITNEY HOUSTON OPENS UP LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND DELIVERS A POWERFUL, ROUSING PERFORMANCE ON
"THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW" SEASON PREMIERE
***MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th AND TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th***
CHICAGO - In a special two-part television event starting Monday, September 14, Oprah sits down with Whitney Houston for what she calls a "jaw-dropping, open, honest and candid" interview. During this world exclusive, Houston speaks out for the first time in seven years about her marriage with Bobby Brown, drugs, rehab and how her family saved her. With friends and family looking on, including Clive Davis and her daughter Bobbi Kristina, Houston brings down the house with an emotional performance of "I Didn’t Know My Own Strength" from her new album "I Look To You."
Winfrey shares her personal reflections on what she calls "one of the most powerful interviews" of her career:
Oprah Winfrey: I think it's the best interview I've ever done. But I guess you're supposed to let other people say that about yourself. I can't think of a moment, ever, when I had a stronger connection to the person I was interviewing.
Oprah Winfrey: My approach to this interview was to not to be judgmental in any way, and not to go in trying to get her to say things to make a 'moment.' I just wanted to be able to have an honest conversation with her. One woman to another woman. And the day of the interview I literally prayed about that all day long. I just wanted a connection between the two of us. And that is what happened. And that is why I believe it's one of the most, if not the most, powerful interviews I've ever done.
Oprah Winfrey: I think whether you liked or loved Whitney Houston before you will certainly have a deeper appreciation for what she has been through as a human being. And I mean, the fans are just going to love her even more.
"The Oprah Winfrey Show: Season Premiere: Oprah And Whitney Houston – The First Interview" airs Monday, September 14, 2009. "The Oprah Winfrey Show: Season Premiere Part II: Whitney Houston’s Show-Stopping Surprise" airs Tuesday, September 15, 2009 (check local listings).
