Later, in 1990, American recording artist Whitney Houston recorded her version and subsequently released it as a single. Her version featured production from Narada Michael Walden. Musically, the song is an R&B number, and the lyrics speak about a special one.

Music Video Info:

The accompanying music video for "All the Man That I Need" was directed by Peter Israelson.[33] The video begins with Houston, donning a curly hairstyle, and wearing a black turtleneck, with her initials "WH" embroidered on it, standing against a wall in a house. She then moves forward in the room, and sits on a chair, singing her lines looking into the camera. The video then switches into another room in the house with all white furniture, including a bed, wardrobe, and grand piano, in which Houston sings. She then moves outside on the balcony, where it is raining. After that scene, she is now seen performing, accompanied by a children's choir, on a stage, in front of an audience at some sort of program. The video ends with Houston finishing the performance, with her outline shown online.
