She had beauty, talent, and success including an unprecedented seven number one songs in a row and with Dolly Parton’s song “I Will Always Love You” the biggest selling single by a female artist in history.

And she lost it all, spending her last years known less for her music than for erratic behavior, a volatile relationship with her husband, Bobby Brown, and substance abuse. And she has died at age 48.
I hope she has found peace at last and that her memory will be a blessing.
