Remembering Whitney

Photo courtesy In Style Magazine January 2010 issue

Whitney Houston.

I remember with perfect clarity, the first time I heard Whitney Houston’s version of The Greatest Love of All. My Daddy and I were driving down South Capital Street in DC. The day was sunny, her voice was clear, fabulous, pure, brilliant, amazing. I was 10. But I knew. I knew that THIS was a voice that I would never forget.

Of course, I was right. Her voice soared. It made you tremble, rejoice, and dance. It made you sit in front of your mirror with a hairbrush and try to sing just like her.

I loved me some Whitney Houston.

I loved her through her ups and downs. I loved her through the drugs, through the pain, throughout everything.

I feel like I’m mourning a friend, a family member, a sister.

I will always love Whitney. Her talent, her voice, her legacy will always be remembered over here.

I will be praying her for Mom and her daughter. I will be praying for her friends, her loved ones. She was loved. She will be remembered.

Rest in peace.

    I can’t explain the shock I felt when I heard the news last night. I was out with my girlfriends, and the news seemed to end our evening. We are all 80’s babies who grew up listening to Whitney’s music. Interestingly enough, it is her music that has allowed me the differentiate because some of the mess I hear on the radio these days and real talent. She will definitely be missed. I also send out prayers to Cissy and Bobbi.

    I was very much a huge fan of Whitney Houston’s talent. I’ve warped so many tapes, and had to replace so many CDs… her music saw me through a lot of moments and I am grateful to have had it.
    I’m definitely stunned and saddened by her passing.
