Backstage, life is a little less glamorous: She's fighting off a cold, her daughter demands attention, days of rehearsals beckon and there's an interview to be done, never one of her favorite activities anyway. Her mind flashes back to youthful summer days spent traveling on concert tours with her cousin, Dionne Warwick, one of the singers Houston will pay tribute to Sunday. "You see the glamour and the glitz in the front, but in the background, you know what it takes to put on all the glamour and the glitz," she said. Houston's dusting off several of her own hits to go along with tributes to Warwick, Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross for the 90-minute special, broadcast live from Washington, D.C.'s Constitution Hall beginning at 8 p.m. Central time, The concert promises to be a scaled- down, more musical experience than her two previous HBO specials, welcoming Desert Storm troops home in March 1991 and paying tribute to South Africa and Nelson Mandela in November 1994. Houston hasn't toured in the mainland United States for the past three years, so it will be the first time many of her fans have seen her in awhile. "I like the intimacy of it," she said. "I wanted it to be more intimate, rather than large, which I'm used to playing. I just thought it would be a great atmosphere." Besides, she said, "they're paying me a lot of money." The concert will also benefit the Children's Defense Fund. Plans are to perform Warwick's "Walk on By," Diana Ross' "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "Ain't No Way" as a tribute to Aretha Franklin. Houston also plans to sing "Summertime" from "Porgy and Bess" and some gospel material. "It will be a setting of just basic, classic songs with voice," she said. Warwick "has known me before 1 knew myself," she said. "It's difficult to talk about someone who is your family and also talk about them in the realm of a popular songstress. Dionne just taught me so much about grace and style." Houston said she's always admired the way Franklin moves people — literally and figuratively — with her music. .

"They don't need hit records to be popular and be known," she said. "They will always be known. They set the standard for everybody." One reason Houston is digging back into popular songbooks is she doesn't believe there are as many talented songwriters coming up with original material as there were even 10 years ago. "There are no more notes to play, so we have to go back and pick up songs that were once great and bring them back to this arena," she said. "There are .no more stories being written, there are just grooves ... I tend to go for the old classics, the ones that will last forever." Her next musical project is a greatest hits collection, but she doesn't know when that will be ready. Houston hasn't decided what new songs to include. She's also producing, singing and playing the Fairy Godmother in this November's television special, "Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella."
