Whitney “The Voice” Houston dead at 48
Growing up in the 90s I was surrounded by amazing singers (well not surrounded in the physical sense but more or less the non-physical for lack of a better word) I grew up listening to Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Tupac Shakur, Ja Rule, DMX, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Craig David, Brandy, Monica, and so many more but my ultimate favorites in my early teen years was Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. I distinctly remember going home from school popping in Mariah Carey’s latest cassette album “Butterfly” increasing the volume and singing along (off tune of course but still I loved it). But we’re not talking about Mariah Carey here, we’re talking about Whitney Houston whose voice was truly indescribable and who will always be remembered as “The Voice” as well as “The diva to end all divas.” Whitney gave us classics such as “I Will Always Love You,” “Greatest Love of All,” “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (who loves me),” “I Belong to You,” “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “My Love is Your Love,” “When You Believe,” and so many more.

The cause of her death was unknown but an investigation was being conducted to attribute the cause of death. Her death came as a big shock as she had just performed 2 days earlier and was seen to be in good spirits. But one never knows. I was preparing a
The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy.
One can never be sure what tomorrow brings unfortunately Whitney Houston never lived to see a tomorrow but that is the price one takes when they gamble their life away on drugs and abuse. Let’s hope 2012 doesn’t bring us more saddening news.
Rest in Peace Whitney Houston.
