Was there ever anyone more gifted than Whitney Houston? She had the face and voice of an angel. 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. She came from a loving and supportive family including her mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston. 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.
This is how I want to remember her.
