Hits of a mother/daughter pairing


YouTube - CISSY HOUSTON - THINK IT OVER (1978)

I couldn't find a Gospel song by Cissy Houston that felt right to me, but this song was a hit on the R&B for her. Still I might go for Gospel later.


YouTube - Whitney Houston

A bit obvious, but it was a hit for Whitney Houston.

And now a musical family that's old school, real old school.


YouTube - Bach Family Concert (part 5)
