OPRAH INTERVIEW WITH PATRICIA HOUSTON, WHITNEY’S SISTER IN LAW MANAGER AND FRIEND

PATRICIA HOUSTON FIRST INTERVIEW, OPRAH LANDED ON OWN NETWORK

Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law Patricia Houston left no stone unturned in describing to Oprah Winfrey the horrible series of moments in which she discovered the talented-yet-troubled music icon had died last month.

Patricia, who’s married to Whitney’s brother Gary, said in her appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter Sunday that while the “handwriting was kind of on the wall” that the embattled Grammy-winner would suffer a premature death, the events of Saturday, February 11, still resonated with deep and shocking pain.

Patricia said she’d just finished a few chores when she went to see the I Will Always Love You singer in her suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where she was to attend Grammy-related festivities that weekend.

“I headed down the hallway … I heard screaming,” Patricia recalled, sobbing. “I saw [Whitney’s] makeup artist [Mary] drop to her knees and I knew something was wrong. I was just numb. I walked. I told her to dial 911.

“I got close, and I turned the corner, Mary was at the door, and she is screaming ‘Oh my God!’ I told her to stop and I said, ‘Calm down.”‘

Patricia said Whitney’s security guard Ray gave everything he had to try and help the fallen singer.

“When I got into the room I saw Ray trying to revive her to the point of exhaustion. I said, ‘Ray!’ — the paramedics were coming in at that point — I said, ‘Ray let it go.’ He said, ‘I tried.’ He was so out of breath, I felt so badly for him.”

Patricia said she saw Whitney lying in the bathtub, looking at peace.

“I don’t know how she got there — [paramedics] had to pull her out of the tub and were trying to revive her,” Patricia said, noting she struggled to leave the room during their resuscitation efforts.

“I saw them cover her up and I knew that was it. I knew that was it. Just looking at her and watching that I still could not believe it I could not believe it.”

“Were you always afraid of that day, February 11, showing up in your life?” Oprah, also weeping at this point, asked Patricia. “Were you always afraid of getting a phone call or hearing that this is the day that it’s happened?”

Patricia said, “If things hadn’t changed — but things had, were, changing. Things were really changing with her. Very much so … not this soon, I never thought anything like this would happen.”

JESSICA SANCHEZ WOWS THE JUDGES DURING HER RENDITION OF WHITNEY HOUSTON’S BIGGEST HIT I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

JESSICA SANCHEZ SINGS WHITNEY HOUSTON BIGGEST HIT AND NAILED IT

NEXT AMERICAN IDOL WINNER

American Idol last night honored two Great Legendary Singers Stevie Wonder, and Whitney Houston. Jessica Sanchez blew the judges, and the fans away with her rendition of Whitney Houston’s biggest hit, “I Will Always Love You.” So many professional entertainers have tried to do their rendition of the song, and most have crashed and burned.

Jessica Sanchez 16 yo hit every note, even the high notes with accuracy, poise, and precision, she almost brought a tear to my eyes. If she doesn’t win American Idol I will stop watching it. To have control over your voice at such an early age speaks volumes.

Jessica Sanchez has that it factor, whatever that it is and I heard that special something during the auditions. She already has a deal whether she wins or loses. She proved to the world last night that she is in it to win it, and she will soar even higher. She definitely wowed the Judges, Jimmy, and Mary J Blige.

Who was your favorite Idol last night?

Watch It Here

I can watch this over and over again…..Beautiful…..

ASHANTI PAYS TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY HOUSTON

ASHANTI KILLED MY EARDRUMS TODAY WHILE PERFORMING WHITNEY'S I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA I NEED FOR HER TO NEVER EVER EVER DO THAT AGAIN

Ashanti made an appearance on Good Morning America today to promote her album and  pay tribute to Whitney Houston, covering her song “ I have Nothing “, and her new single ” The Woman You Love” Now before I go on, I appreciate her effort . Everyone can’t sing Whitney’s songs even if you can sing, and I am not saying Ashanti can sing.

Whitney’s quality and control of her voice is so top notched only a handful of singers can pull it off. Ashanti you get an A for effort but this was an epic fail. Please just stick to singing / whispering ” Baby, Baby, Baby ” because you have just caused me an out of pocket expense for my hearing aids….not one but two hearing aides.

When you take a listen to this …I don’t know what to call it, try not to annihilate the messenger.

JENNIFER HUDSON ‘S TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY

JENNIFER HUDSON PAYING TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY

Jennifer Hudson paid tribute to Whitney Houston at the Grammy’s last night singing “I Will Always Love You“. Jennifer gave an emotional rendition of the song, trying to fight back the tears, she was unable to hit the high notes.

Jennifer Hudson still delivered a beautiful performance. It was draining emotionally for me to sit there and listen to it, so I can just imagine how hard it would be performing it. Jennifer looked poised as she stood under the portrait of Whitney Houston. I am quite sure she made Whitney proud.

Take a look at the J-Huds performance
