Like everybody else I awoke to the news that singer Whitney Houston had passed away. I checked my various notifications on my BB to find many tributes being paid to her. Once reading the confirmed news I was in total shock and somewhat teary eyed. I have grown up most of my life listening to Whitney Houston. Her life has been one of great achievement and celebration as well as some very hard trials and tribulations.
I love all her classic songs but even more so her gospel songs. She praised the Lord during her performances great and small. You can really hear the soul in her voice when she sang. She will always be remembered as a great voice who at 48yrs old has left this world too soon. My prayers go out to her family and friends especially her only child Bobbi Kristina.
Rest In Peace Whitney Houston (1963 – 2012)
Such a warm tribute to Whitney Houston…When I was younger I thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world. RIP Whitney…
The funeral finished me off. Still can’t believe it. Like a friend of mine said, it’s like we’ve lost black royalty. So, so sad.
