Music mogul Clive Davis is set to release Whitney Houston’s first-ever live album in November, Davis announced Tuesday.

The album will be the third to contain Houston’s recordings since her death in February 2012.

Davis is credited with discovering Houston in the early 1980s and said in a statement that the album will “stun everyone.”

“It definitely shows why she was totally unique, absolutely in the first rank of all time. For me, it’s been very emotional,” Davis said. “The set vividly confirms that there really was no one like her. It also makes the tragedy of losing her so young so very painful.”

Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances is due for a Nov. 10 release. The album will contain 16 live songs and 19 live performances on DVD, including Houston’s 1994 performance of I Will Always Love You at The Concert for a New South Africa and her 1991 performance of The Star Spangled Banner at Super Bowl XXV.

“Her amazing vocals and the songs that have stood the test of time combine to truly hypnotize over and over,” said Davis.

Davis wrote the liner notes for Houston’s posthumous best of album, I Will Always Love You: The Best of Whitney Houston, which was released in November 2012.

She also appeared on the July 2012 soundtrack to the film Sparkle. It includes the last song Houston recorded before she died, Celebrate, a track she recorded with Jordin Sparks.
