R.I.P. Whitney Houston……

I usually talk about Indie Music but right now I want to say something about Whitney Houston…..

Like Michael Jackson, Whitney’s music was a fixture in my house growing up. I can’t sing to save my life but I LOVED her voice. My sister and I would use the video camera to make videos and of course Whitney was on the play list. I can still recall my aunt blasting ‘Saving all my love’, and we all sing along as we drove down Crenshaw Blvd. Even when I stopped listening to RnB/Pop music, I kept up with Whitney’s music. Most of the stuff after the Bodyguard wasn’t my favorite but there were a few songs I enjoyed here and there.

So Emotional is my absolute FAVORITE song by Whitney Houston. I can’t explain it because its usually over looked but I can listen to it over and over.

Despite her sad drug addiction Whitney was talent like no one else……alot of people try to reach that level but lets face it she was one of a kind. Model, singer, and actress….wow…..

  1. I am heartbroken over this! One of my 1st solo’s in school was singing “greatest love of all”. One of my favorite songs by her “wanna dance with somebody” always me wanna sing.

    I hope she finally has peace……
