MIRACLE ~ WHITNEY HOUSTON
"Miracle" is the third single from Whitney Houston's multi-platinum third album, I'm Your Baby Tonight. It was written and produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface. The song is about a girl who had an abortion but later feels she made a mistake. In an interview at that time, Houston acknowledged the song was indeed about abortion and praised Babyface for digging so deep with the song's lyrical content. Not wanting to alienate any fans, however, the video for the song doesn't stick with the subject, instead showing Houston singing and various photographs injected periodically. The single reached #9 on the US Hot 100 (becoming her 13th Top Ten hit), #2 on the R&B Chart, and #4 on the Adult Contemporary Chart. "Miracle" entered The Billboard Hot 100 at sixty-three, and stayed on the chart for fourteen weeks.
