Tribute: Whitney Houston

posted by Nell Minow

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.

    Nell, did you ever do a Movie Mom Review of the Whitney Houston-Kevin Costner film “The Bodyguard?” I never saw it but just reserved a copy of the DVD at B&N. I noticed it is rated R but I dont know what generated that rating so its hard to know whether high school aged children should or should not see the movie. I find your MM reviews very helpful and routinely check them before my kids go to the movies.

      Thanks, Ms. Orenstein! I did not review “The Bodyguard,” but I think it might get a PG-13 today.
