Houston plans London live comeback

Whitney Houston is set to make her live comeback in London on May 8.

Whitney Houston is set to make her live comeback in London on May 8.

Organisers of the Caudwell Children's Legend Ball in Battersea have revealed they've booked the diva for a charity show.

Charity founder John Caudwell tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "We are thrilled to have an artist of Whitney's calibre to headline the event."

The comeback concert is not a big surprise - Tina Turner came out of retirement to perform at the charity's 2007 gala, which helped Caudwell raise more than $2m (€1.3m) for disabled children.

Houston is currently recording a new album with her mentor, music mogul Clive Davis, who claims the comeback project will be released in November.
