Description

Music video by Whitney Houston performing I Believe In You And Me.

(C) 1996 Arista Records, Inc.

"I Believe in You and Me" is a ballad written by Sandy Linzer and David Wolfert. The song was first recorded and released by the R&B group The Four Tops in 1983. The song was written by Linzer and Wolfert in 1982, and the Four Tops released it as a single in 1983 (although the song is, in essence, a solo recording by lead vocalist Levi Stubbs). While it failed to crack the US Top 40, it became a moderate hit for the group on the US R&B chart, peaking at #40 on the Hot Black Singles chart in early 1983.

In 1996, R&B/pop singer Whitney Houston recorded a very successful cover of the song for her film The Preacher's Wife and released it as a single. Following its release, the song became a top five pop and R&B hit in the US, also peaking on music charts worldwide and is most popularly known as a Whitney Houston song. Despite the bigger success of the Whitney Houston version, however, the song's co-composer David Wolfert, stated in a 2001 interview that young songwriters, referring to the song, told him: "Oh, you wrote that Whitney song." He claimed, "I said, 'That's not really a Whitney song,' and play them the (Four Tops) original. Their mouths drop open. No one is going to sing that song like Levi - ever."

Whitney Houston recorded a cover of the song for her soundtrack album The Preacher's Wife, produced by Mervyn Warren and herself on the film version and David Foster on the single version of the song. Houston received a Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for her performance of the song at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards on February 25, 1998.

The music video was directed by F. Gary Gray and shot in Fishkill, New York. It is intercut with clips from the film, The Preacher's Wife. Entertainment Tonight debuted the video on December 11, 1996, and the following day it was premiered on MTV, VH1 and BET.
