Umbrella red

Whitney Houston

How can one person both feel shock and lack of shock to hear that the biggest voice of the mid 1980s and the 1990s passed away much too early at the age of 48. I had hoped for much more for Whitney. If her death wasn't drug or alcohol related, what cruel irony it will be. Her singing is not everyone's flavour, but to me she was the epitome of what singing from the soul sounded like. I feel so badly for her family, especially her Mom and her daughter.

R.I.P. Whitney Houston. You will not be forgotten!
