A Song For You by Robin Crawford is an extraordinary autobiography that we highly recommended to any fan of Whitney Houston whose life long dream was to know what it’s like to be her best friend. Honest and endearing, this book will have you celebrating the precious moments, crying at the lows ones, and thankful for a beautifully crafted end. Robyn guides us through her youth with Whitney, her own struggles with the declining health of her mother and siblings, and her journey to find herself in the process. Every word written in this book is an endearment to Robyn’s mother, or her best friend Whitney. Never shying away from her own faults, Robyn details the struggles she faced as well as the poor, yet sometimes pure, choices that she made. The way she writes is a mix between conversational and lyrical, helping the story flow even when there is a part might have ebbed if seen in person. The pace is perfect and the emotions are raw yet refined. If you can, we highly recommend listening to the audio book as well. It’s read by the author and the laughter in her voice when she talks fondly about Whitney, or the tremble that takes over when she reminisces about her mother, makes you feel like your aunt is right in front of you, telling you a story.
