RIP Whitney! Prayers to her family and friends.

Whitney did many beautiful songs but my favorite was "I Will Always Love You" gives me chills just thinking about the way she hit those high notes.

May that song be the anthem for her family and friends as I am sure they will always love her.


Great post Very Happy

Houston had been at rehearsals for the show Thursday, coaching singers Brandy and Monica, according to a person who was at the event but was not authorized to speak publicly about it. The person said Houston looked disheveled, was sweating profusely and liquor and cigarettes could be smelled on her breath.

one of the greatest voices of all time. a voice from a higher power.

Her eyes in these two are very sad. Like she's trying to hold in the pain and sadness, but just can't.

I remember her doing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Easily top two or three I've ever heard.

In her prime, Whitney's voice was the example of PERFECT PITCH, TONE, DELIVERY, EMOTION AND STRENGTH!

Whitney has always professed her love for the Lord. I take comfort that she is in his arms now!

RIP

That's right Real. There is something about pregnancy that makes a woman's voice stronger. She was definitely at her peak right here.

I can't believe Clive is going on with this party tonight. I mean, it's in the same hotel she died. I guess things are done differently in Hollywood.

Whitney Houston's voice will never be forgotten

NEW YORK (AP) - Whitney Houston's downfall was so long and sad that, in an impatient public's mind, it overshadowed her many accomplishments.

Those achievements can be checked off easily in numbers - Grammy Awards, records sold, the string of seven consecutive No. 1 singles. Yet if there's any solace to her passing, it is that people will revisit recordings, videos and films to rediscover the majesty of her work.

Look up the video for one of those hits, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)." The arrangement and instrumentation - cheesy synthesizers, booming drums - date the recording immediately in the late 1980s.

It's a pop confection that could have been sung by any singer who might have been forgotten in a couple of years. Houston lifted it above the average with a voice that could just as easily be found on a gospel record or opera stage. She danced through it with a bearing that made you think of Michael Jordan stopping off at a schoolyard basketball game, knowing that she had far more talent than anyone around her.

The daughter of Cissy Houston and cousin of Dionne Warwick, Houston had talent that surpassed each of them. Her godmother was Aretha Franklin - how's that for pressure? - but in her prime, Houston's voice could match the Queen of Soul's.

here she is singing the National Anthem:

IMO, nobody has or ever will sing this better than her. Although Kelly Clarkson can close in last week's SuperBowl.

I'm watching CNN and it was said that he chose to go on with the party so those who loved Whitney could grieve and share their memories of her...

Whitney's rendition in 91 is the best bar none, but Mariah wasn't too shabby either, ( can't remember the superbowl).



Watching the grammy's just to see her tribute ( there better be one).

Jimmy Jam, who is the Recording Academy Chair Emeritus, stated that they are scrambling to switch the show around for Whitney.
