I just got a call from my mom, who knows how much I've loved Whitney Houston since I was a little girl, who told me about Whitney's passing. I remember bouncing around to her songs, listening on my cassette player back in the day. I loved her Greatest Hits compilation cd that was released back in 2000. I can't even begin to express how sad the turn her life took has made me, but it's even more sad that it never turned back around before she passed at the young age of 48. The timing of her death is incredibly sad given that it's Grammy night and she was no stranger to the Grammy's. I hope her daughter is handling all of this okay and that she can learn from her mom's mistakes.... sigh.
Good-bye, Whitney. You were an amazing talent and you will be missed.
Whitney Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)
Though this isn't my ultimate favorite song of hers, it is absolutely one of her most memorable and strangely a bit appropriate. So sad... :(
