The first time I saw this spine tingling rendition of the Star Spangled banner was in a restaurant in San Fernando, Trinidad in the early 1990s. Daddy, my three brothers and I stared fixated at the screen as we ate and watched Whitney Houston effortlessly sing. This is the singer I have never forgotten. The one gifted with a voice that travelled over a range of notes and emotions as easily as you and I simply breathe. In the ensuing years and the controversies that clouded her and the obvious changes in that beautiful voice I have held onto the songs of my childhood. She was, with no contest a phenomenal gorgeous singer. Nobody does a ballad like Ms Houston. Another great talent has prematurely left this world and this is a time to pray for her daughter and her mother and all her family and friends she has left behind. What they have lost is even greater ūüė¶


One thought on “Whitney

  1. Poor choices and bad company. Let it be a lesson to us all. She had a divine voice, but the drugs ruined that as well. RIP Whitney.
