Whitney Houston passed away at age 48, Whitney had one of the best voices I’ve ever heard. She won 6 Grammy’s, 30 billboard music awards, 22 American Music Awards, and Two Emmy’s. There is no doubt that Whitney Houston was super talented and had a golden voice. She appeared in two movies The Body Guard costarring along Hollywood’s golden boy Kevin Costner and Waiting to Exhale.
Whitney was such a polished and poised act, a pop diva. When she started dating Bad Boy Bobby Brown from the teen heartbreak group New Edition it raised the eyebrows of so many, Whitney said in defense of all the speculations.‘‘When you love, you love. I mean, do you stop loving somebody because you have different images? You know, Bobby and I basically come from the same place,’’ she told Rolling Stone in 1993. ‘‘You see somebody, and you deal with their image, that’s their image. It’s part of them, it’s not the whole picture. I am not always in a sequined gown. I am nobody’s angel. I can get down and dirty. I can get raunchy. After they married in 1992 it appeared as if Whitney was spiraling out of control and struggling with drug addiction. Her erratic behavior overshadowed her good girl image.
Whitney recorded 7 hit albums, her last album was in 2009 “I Look To You” which went platinum but was plagued with show cancellations along with abruptly ending her tour. It was rumored that she had lost her voice, she wasn’t able to hit the high notes she once did effortlessly. To date Whitney has sold over 200 million albums and singles. Whitney Houston had traveled down a bumpy road but was able to overcome some of her obstacles.
Whitney’s marriage to Bobby Brown ended in 2007, and Whitney checked herself into a treatment program and was on the road of recovery. Whitney leaves behind one child Bobbi Christina, with her former husband Bobby Brown. I will always remember Whitney Houston as the Diva with the Golden Voice and she will forever live on through her music. May Her Soul Rest in Peace.
