In the cover story, Brandy speaks about her long-lived career, finding her purpose, what makes her happy, starring in the Broadway show CHICAGO, Whitney Houston and more.

Quotes from Brandy:

I don’t view myself as a celebrity. It’s all about the intention. It’s not about me. I thought that it was before. But, now I know that it is about other people. Who else could it be about?

I stepped into something that I was born to do and I didn’t know it. I walked on the stage and my entire life reawakened. It’s about making people feel good about themselves and helping people dream. The vain stuff, like the pictures I took for this magazine and being in shows, I love! But it is all just the polish. I’m not a celebrity. A star guides. There is a difference.

About Whitney Houston:

I think about her every day,” she admits. “She is everywhere. She is with me all the time. She’s always there. Whitney was the possibility of dreams coming true. I loved her. I loved her personality. I loved the way she danced. I loved her smile and her voice.
