Whitney Houston's musical legacy is brought to life in The Greatest Love of All, Wednesday, Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m. at Mayo Performing Arts Center. This tribute to Whitney Houston stars South African-born singer Belinda Davids.

Tickets are $39-$69.

A five-piece band, backing vocalist and choreographed dancers will accompany Davids on stage as she pays tribute to Houston with live performances of "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," "How Will I Know," "I Have Nothing," "Didn't We Almost Have it All" and other chart-topping hits.

Though this is Davids' first major U.S. tour as the principal of The Greatest Love of All, she's no stranger to US audiences, having toured extensively as a backing vocalist for the likes of Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole and Monica. In December 2017, Davids' earned raves for her performance on Fox TV's Showtime at the Apollo Christmas Special, where her spine-tingling rendition of "I Will Always Love You" earned her not only the awe of host Steve Harvey but over 10 million views of the performance video on Facebook in the days following.

Of her return to the U.S., Davids says, "This is the birthplace of Whitney — her home and her essence and the place and experiences that made her the incredible person and artist that she was. I know Americans hold her memory dear, and I'm first and foremost a Whitney fan myself, so I cannot wait to be surrounded by others who treasure her just as much as I do. Every audience, every fan that I perform to is special, but I know that this tour will be particularly special."

Showtime Australia's international production house, led by respected father and son team Johnny and Jono Van Grinsven, in the roles of Producer and Technical Director respectively, has put together custom-designed lighting, theatrical effects, and more than 20 different hand-crafted costumes to complete the sensory spectacle and keep audiences enthralled through the course of the two-hour show.
