Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This duet by Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans is an uplifting song about leaning on a friend for support when needed. The song is from the movie Waiting To Exhale and was released as the fourth single from the soundtrack album.
CeCe Winans is a gospel singer who is best known for her recordings with her brother BeBe Winans. The duo's accolades include three Grammy Awards and nine Dove Awards. When this single peaked at #8 on the Hot 100, Winans achieved her first top ten single. (Check out one of their songs here).
The song was written and produced by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. He recalled to Billboard magazine in 2011: "Forest Whitaker gave me a call because he was directing Waiting To Exhale and was interested in me scoring the film, as well as writing songs. Knowing it was a Whitney film, it was kind of expected that she'd sing, but it wasn't a guarantee. But she did have rights to decide who would be a part of the soundtrack. Everyone was chosen or agreed to by Whitney. I can't remember any of the names we crossed off-and I wouldn't say them anyway [laughs]. But I remember she really wanted to do something with CeCe [Winans]. That's how the song 'Count on Me' happened."
