I can’t describe how shocked I am at the sudden loss of Whitney Houston. The 48 year old singer was found dead in her LA hotel room yesterday.
Whitney shot to fame in the 1980s and remained at the height of her game through the 1990s.
As I was growing up her talent was the one I most admired. Her voice could grab you emotionally. She was one of those rare talents, someone who will go down in history as one of the greats of her time.
I was literally only thinking about Whitney yesterday. Her widely documented problems with drugs and her disappointing comeback tour had marred her final decade. The tragic shame and loss of her greatness was evident before this tragic news. However it is for her brilliance that she will now be remembered.
Here is her biggest hit and undoubtedly her greatest vocal performance. “I Will Always Love You”.
