Whitney Houston is dead

Recommended Posts

I am shocked. Any fans of Whitney here? I know her personal life was a mess, that she married the wrong man, and that drugs destroyed her voice and career.

But there's no denying that she had a great voice and singing ability that could inspire. The same can be said of Michael Jackson.

Why do these great talents die so young?

During the 80s, I remember listening to her Greatest Love of All so many times on the radio. I am very old school :)

Some of her biggest hits from the 1980s:

at Once[/url]

]I Wanna Dance with Somebody[/url]

One Moment in Time

Her hits from the 1990s:

Have Nothing[/url]

Every Woman[/url]

Many people with great talents live / lived a long life - Stephen Hawking, Michaelangelo, etc. As many as those who died young I guess. It is just that people tend to remember those who died young better. Perhaps we can't generalise too much.

I was fairly shocked to hear of her death, and remarkably saddened (even though I wouldn't consider myself a fan). I guess her songs reminded me a lot of random times growing up.

Her version of the National Anthem is probably my favorite of all time.
