Being star-struck is something that everyone goes through at least once in their lifetime. For Whitney Houston it was the late, great Elvis Presley who took her breath away.

During a recent interview with 'Access Hollywood,' the award-winning Pop diva recalls meeting the cultural icon as a kid while her mother toured as one of Presley's backup singers.

"It was one of those moments that I won't forget as a kid," she noted to 'Access Hollywood' correspondent Shaun Robinson. "It wasn't like, 'Hi Mr. Elvis, nice to meet you,' we didn't do that. We just sat back and looked at him. Amazing to look at." Check out Houston's full reaction in the clip above.
