The nominee’s for the 2009 Soult Train Awards have been recently announced and I’m happy to say that Whitney Houston is among the females nominated! What a great way to be welcomed back into the music industry.

The singer is nominated for Best Female R&B Artist and she’s up against some tough competition. Singers, Keri Hilson and Beyoncé, both snagged four nominations a piece, making them the most nominated this year.
