Whitney Houston, 1963-2012


I remember when I used to listen to her first album on repeat. I was in my early twenties, alone in my first solo apartment, and I felt as if she was singing everything I felt, just for me. She was company. Her voice was a marvel. Thank you, Whitney. I was always rooting for you. I hope you are somewhere free.

  2. I have cried some tonite. I loved her since I was a little girl- her music a comfort and joy for me. So beautiful! So talented. So sad.

  5. I was so surprised when I heard the news, even though I probably shouldn't have been. Like you, I listened a lot to those songs in the mid-80s. In later years I wished she'd paid more attention to the lyrics of "The Greatest Love of All." But as you say, I guess she's at peace now.

  6. drugs and fame seem to be accepted in the entertainment industry. How come they dont screen people for drug like they do for a regular job. too many icons have been lost and nobody speaks out.....Its so so sad. what a loss. Rest in Peace.
