Gary J. Garland (born October 12, 1957), also known as Gary Houston, is a former professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played one season with the Nuggets (the 1979–80 season).[1] Garland studied at DePaul University. He is the son of gospel singer Cissy Houston, and the half-brother of Whitney Houston. Garland himself has performed as a singer.[2]

Work as a vocal singer[edit]

After a break from basketball, Garland joined his sister Whitney Houston, participating in a 1986 tour as a duet/background vocalist. This led to a continuous work relationship; he was featured in several of Whitney's tours throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and her final tour, 2010's Nothing But Love Tour.
