Last week, a misleading press release was issued, without my knowledge, to announce the iTunes release of "a dedication song" to Whitney Houston. I would like to make clear that no such song was ever approved by me. Further, I have not, and will not, receive any monies for it.
This song was recorded more than three years ago. No-one informed me, and nor did I sign any permissions, for it ever to be commercially released.
After making strong reservations to those responsible, I have today been assured that the process has started to remove this song from iTunes. While this matter is being resolved, I wanted to offer this explanation to the fans in order to clarify the situation now that the funeral has taken place.
