|My favourite pix of Whitney Houston (1963 - 2012)|
YET another star has fallen off the sky with the death of pop princess Whitney Houston yesterday. I may not be a die-hard fan of Houston but she did once possess a soul-touching, sky-scraping voice that made your entire being stand in attention. Any one who's lived through the 80s and 90s would know of this songbird who'd touched the world with hits like I Will Always Love You, How Will I Know and I Wanna Dance With Somebody (that smile and confident glint in her eyes when she did it is just amazing). Houston was adored for that gift of voice and she will forever be remembered for that.
I suppose it's important not to lose that voice inside of us. Losing that inner voice could mean the beginning of our downfall. A little crack allows for a lot of crap to creep in. Houston isn't the first and she's won't be the last. When Amy Winehouse died last year, many voted Houston to be the next in line in a poll (another popular choice was Linsay Lohan) just because it was that predictable. Now we don't know for sure what killed Houston at this point but you can't rule out an overdose given her track record in substance abuse. But Where Do Broken Hearts Go because mostly, they say Houston died of a broken heart.
Here is my favourite Whitney number.
May she rests in peace.
