Rest In Peace Whitney Houston

       Growing up as a child, I found that there were some songs I just sort of came into the world to meet and love maybe because everyone loved them or that they just sounded really good to me. Years passed and these songs still remained loved and then at some point I began to find out that many of these songs had the beautiful Whitney Houston written all over them.

     "From the start of her career more than two decades ago, Ms. Houston had the talent, looks and pedigree of a pop superstar. She was the daughter of Cissy Houston, a gospel and pop singer who had backed up Aretha Franklin, and the cousin of Dionne Warwick. (Ms. Franklin is Ms. Houston’s godmother.) Ms. Houston’s range spanned three octaves, and her voice was plush, vibrant and often spectacular. She could pour on the exuberant flourishes of gospel or peal a simple pop chorus; she could sing sweetly or unleash a sultry rasp."

  To be honest , she got involved with drugs/ her dark age started when I was still young so I can't say I am a "die-hard" fan of Whitney but ofcourse she is a legend and her songs are classics that were and still are a part of us.

   Sadly just like the great Michael Jackson (may his soul rest in peace), Whitney Houston fought her dark side and most likely, died still fighting. We all have the parts of us we have to fight but I guess for her being a celebrity and the harsh words from the media did not help at all.
Whitney was found in her room at 3:55 p.m. on the 11th day of February, 2012 and paramedics spent close to 20 minutes trying to revive her, the authorities said.Whitney died at the age of 48. 
Although the Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner's office declined to release the coroner's initial finding of cause of death, saying lab results were expected in six to eight weeks,news has it that bottles of Lorazepam, Valium, Xanax and a sleeping medication were found in the hotel room, it has been claimed. The drugs were believed to have acted as sedatives, causing her to fall asleep in the bathtub once they had been mixed with alcohol from the previous evenings.

    I pray that her soul rests in perfect peace and that God comforts her family especially her daughter who was admitted after allegedly passing out, after drinking alcohol and then taking a sedative pill given to her by one of her mother's entourage to calm her down, upon learning of the devastating news.

Rest in Peace Whitney.

You gave a lot to the world through your music.

much luv,
