Whitney Houston

I don’t even know where to start. It’s still hard to believe that Whitney Houston unexpectedly passed away yesterday at the age of 48. Since hearing the devastating and tragic news, I’ve been in a state of complete shock and disbelief. As a huge fan and supporter of Ms. Houston, for years now (decades in fact), my heart is heavy with profound sadness over the loss of a true legend. I grew up listening to her incredible voice (that’s still unmatched today), she was hands down one of my favorite musicians, sadly there will never be anyone quite like her. I truly thought she had finally put all of the drama from the last couple of years behind her, and was ready to be back on top once again (in fact I loved her most recent album I Look To You so much I named it my top favorite album of 2009), and now it pains me to think we’ll never hear or be witness to Whitney’s God-given gift again. Even though she was taken from the world way too soon, I know her beautiful and original spirit will live on through her timeless music, that’s bound to touch future generations. My heart goes out to Whitney’s family and friends, especially her daughter Bobbi Kristina who I know is having a very rough time dealing with her mother’s sudden death. I will always love you Whitney, the entire world misses you already, I pray that you have finally found the peace you so deserved.
