I feel so sad over the tragic loss of Whitney Houston. I am able to throw away all thoughts of her and her troubled years and go back to the days when she was a celebrated icon with a voice of gold.
I was in high school when the world was first introduced to Whitney. My friends and I just loved her. I remember that we couldn't wait to get her cassette tape. (Yeah, I said cassette tape. We had big boom boxes back then. lol)
I remember playing that thing over & over again. She was beautiful, she made great videos, she had a cool style, but most importantly she had that voice, that incredible voice.
I always loved the song, "The Greatest Love of All." This song was played at our high school graduation in 1986.
It's really upsetting when the singers you enjoyed, the ones you grew up listening to, the ones you hear singing in the background as your high school memories play before you (like in your high school graduation), are just one day gone...and gone all too soon. (Michael Jackson, anyone?)
Rest in Peace, Whitney. God's Choir of Angels just received a new voice and what a voice it is!
