When my sister called me Saturday night to tell me that Whitney Houston was no longer with us, I immediately wanted to believe it was just a rumor. However, the hurt in my sister's voice let me know it most definitely wasn't. On February 11th, the world lost the legendary Whitney Houston, she was only 48 years old.
According to TMZ Whitney was found submerged in water in her L.A. hotel room. Initially, sources were saying that Whitney might have taken prescription drugs, fell asleep in the tub and drowned. Since those reports, the autopsy has been completed and family members stated that she died prior to going underwater. According to the autopsy, there was not enough water in her lungs to suggest drowning. Whitney possibly died from a combination of prescription pills and alcohol.
Regardless of how Whitney left, the world is definitely mourning her loss. While we're hurting, nobody is hurting more than her 18 year old daughter Bobbi Kristina. Since her mother's death, she's been rushed to the hospital twice. The night of Whitney's death, Bobbi Kristina got into a verbal altercation with police when they would not allow her entry into her mother's room. Please keep this family, especially Bobbi Kristina in your prayers. She and her mother were SUPER close, you could see Whitney's love for Bobbi Kristina every time she spoke of her. The above pic was one of the last photos the two took together.
I have ALWAYS loved me some Whitney Houston. You couldn't tell me I wasn't Whitney back in the day. She was beautiful and her voice always amazed me. Yesterday, an elementary school friend of mine posted a status on Facebook asking if anybody remembered when the twins (my sister and I) used to sing Whitney Houston songs on the playground and everybody used to crowd around. That brought back memories cuz like I said, I LOVED Whitney. Anytime somebody asked me to sing, I would break out in a Whitney song. Now that I'm older, I know better than to fool around with anything Whitney ever touched LOL.
I just wanted to take a minute and post some of my favorite Whitney songs and performances. Check MORE DISH to hear her angelic voice.
LOVEDDDDDDDDDDDD IT!!! And it was effortless.
When they showed this clip of her live Grammy performance from 1994 last night at the beginning of this years Grammys, I didn't think I would make it through the rest of the show. It broke me all the way down. This woman's voice, was beyond amazing!! And when she got to bouncing, I knew she would have me rocking. People can say what they want about this woman, but THIS is how I will always remember Ms. Whitney!! Rest In Love, we will ALWAYS LOVE YOU!!
