Farewell Whitney Houston
She made us want to dance with somebody, she taught us about the joys of almost having it all and she assured us she will always love us. She’s one of the greatest singers of our time, and on the 11th of February 2012, she was taken from us much too soon.
Whitney Houston, 'The Prom Queen of Soul' was found dead in her Beverly Hilton hotel room just a day before she was due to be honoured at the 2012 Grammy Awards. In the light of this tragedy, Hollywood made sure Houston was honoured in a way that was a little different to what was printed on the program – with Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Hudson performing a tribute to the songstress in light of her passing.
Hollywood has been deeply rocked by the passing of Houston, who is famous for her powerful love ballads and movie ‘The Bodyguard”, co-starring Kevin Costner. At only 48 years of age it’s obvious she was taken much too soon.
Many have blamed her party-heavy lifestyle for her passing, however at present officials are unable to determine the exact cause of death.
In any case, our thoughts and prayers are with her daughter Bobbi Kristina, and her friends and family. May her legacy live on through her music and the messages within them.
