RIP Whitney E. Houston


I grew up on Whitney's music.  As I kid you learned your ABC's, the National Anthem, and the words to Greatest Love of All.  Some of my fondest memories as a kid is singing along to Greatest Love of All and  bopping around to I Wanna Dance with Somebody.  The news of her death sent shock around the world.  I was en route to a party when the news came.  My stomach knotted up making it hard for me to drive to my destination

Whitney Houston had a highly successful career as old as I am.   I can't recount everything, but here are some of my favorites by one of the best voices of my time.  My prayers go out to her family.  We lost a legend, but I can't be selfish.

Check out some videos of my favorite Whitney moments:

Amber Riley's Glee rendition of  I Will Always Love You:

My favorite Whitney performance ever:

When she made her 'comeback', this was my favorite song and how I enjoyed her, upbeat and happy.
I'm not always in the mood for a heartfelt love ballad (even though she was the best at it).
