I was very shocked and saddened when I learned of Whitney Houston’s passing. I couldn’t believe it. Whitney has had her life of struggles and pain, but her voice is one that can’t be replicated. She had the voice of gold. Her voice had the perfect tone, pitch and richness. Her many hits like “I’m Every Woman,” “Run to You,” “I Have Nothing” and her signature song, “I Will Always Love You” made her a pop sensation. You see many singers today trying to imitate Whitney’s style: Jennifer Hudson on “American Idol” as well as countless other singers on the singing competition shows.We all thought Whitney was going to come back, she was primed for her big comeback! Everyone, including me was rooting for Whitney. I know that her voice wasn’t what it used to be, but she still sang with passion and determination to uplift and empower people with her music. It’s sad that yet another talented, beautiful and influential figure has left us much too soon. To anyone that wants to bad talk Whitney, don’t. She suffered enough and now her soul is at rest, so let her rest in peace. My prayers are with Whitney’s mother, gospel great Cissy Houston, her daughter, Bobbi Kristina, her cousin Dionne Warwick, her aunt, Aretha Franklin and her ex-husband, rap crooner Bobby Brown. Mr. Brown definitely needs prayer because he’s going through, too. I pray that God shows him how to be better and keep him close to his daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
Rest in Peace, Whitney. Your voice and classiness touched millions. Your family will miss you. Your fans will miss you. I will miss you. And we will always love you.
Stay blessed everyone!!
