Whitney Houston missed the high notes in her first public performance in years today in Central Park.
The singer blamed her cracked voice on a taping she did Monday for 'Oprah.' "When I'm talking, I should be singing," she told the audience. Her four-song set will air Wednesday in the 8 a.m. hour on 'Good Morning America.'
Whitney kept the gig short because of a strained voice, her rep told TMZ. "She was only ever committed to two songs, so she actually extended the show to the third and fourth songs."WATCH:
