Goodnight Miss Whitney Houston 1963-2012

One Moment in Time

To wake up from a deep sleep on the couch on Sunday 12 February at around 2am (UK time) to learn one of my most favourite singers and one of the most best selling artists of all time, Whitney Houston, had passed away in her hotel room in Beverly Hilton hit me hard.  I’ll keep this tribute short whilst emotions are still raw, I deal with the shock and the cause of her death is still unknown.

I was around 9 years old when Whitney Houston burst on the music scene with her debut “Saving All My Love For You“.  My mother bought the record and that powerful yet soothing voice bellowed within and around the walls of our front room repeatedly.  In the mid-eighties before the technology we have today, music was sacredly precious, music videos were TV gold.  Everybody within my family and my elders social peers raved about Whitney’s magical voice and gasped and boomed whenever she did a TV performance live.  I was mesmerised back then as I was discovering my musical tastes and right through my teens and twenties till my hearing became severely impaired Whitney’s voice always did it for me, even when I became a die-hard Prince fan.

There’s three female singers that tug at my heart strings whenever they peform live.  Chaka Khan, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston.  Whenever there’s a perfomance on the TV, watching my DVDs or trawling through the web, my ear phones are jacked in and I’m enveloped in another world with tears streaming down my face.  Sunday morning I cried like a baby after learning Whitney was gone.

My fellow Leo, skinny black female and soul troubled Whitney I will miss you greatly.  Your voice, your presence and essence may no longer be here but I, like millions around the world…’will always love you’.  May you rest in peace and may God guide your family and loved ones through your untimely passing.

Whitney’s music decline and turbulent private life has been well documented I choose not to go there at this time.  However, after reading some of the comments left on websites and seeing numerous Z List celebrities and reporters on news and current affairs shows passing their judgements its clear for me to see why artists (check Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse) become so lost and self destructive. 

Please remember Whitney for her talent, not her downfall.  Click HERE to see Whitney singing live.
