Ms. Whitney Houston, the legendary icon, was found by friends, unresponsive, in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel room yesterday afternoon just a bit prior to a scheduled appearance to host Clive Davis' Grammy party. Paramedics performed CPR. Unfortunately, the attempts were futile.
Despite her life publicly spiraling out of control, Whitney had it! All little girls born in the 80's looked up to this beautiful lady with the vocal pipes of an angel.
Whitney was 48 years old. Much too young. Much too talented.
Thursday night Whitney got on the mic with Kelly Price for about a minute at a Grammys party:
I declared it Whitney Houston Day on Tumblr the morning of January 20th (later in the day word of Etta James' passing hit the 'net). I was at work and just felt like creating and listening to a Whitney Houston playlist.
As I said, Whitney is an icon. Her catalog goes on for forever. And I have many favorites, but the below vid is one of my mother's favorites. When this album came out my mother and one of my aunties played this thing nonstop! Let me tell you.... NONSTOP!! I was pregnant at the time. I remember being physically sick from listening to this all the damn time! They played that thang in the ground. (lol) After school in the house.... In the car on the way to school... In the mornings on the weekend cleaning... (Went on for months!)
"My Love Is Your Love"
R.I.P Ms. Whitney!!!
