Rest In Peace Whitney

13 Feb

Whitney Houston is a staple in my childhood music memories.  Her version of a song was always the best whether it was a Christmas carol or the National Anthem.  Whitney is the gold standard.  Her voice is comforting and familiar and always gives me chills.  You always knew when she opened her mouth to sing, it was gonna be good.  And how could she be so beautiful AND talented?  So poised yet so powerful?  She had gifts that could only come from somewhere beyond this world.  I don’t think there will ever be a voice as gorgeous or technically perfect as hers.   Ms. Houston, I will continue to belt out your songs in my car and into my hair brush, and to listen to your music on holidays and just for fun.  Thanks for the wonderful music.  Rest in Peace.
