Whitney – Gone, But Never Forgotten!

Whitney Houston Death

Those who follow this site, know that I abhor doing death notices and usually don’t acknowledge them because a) I don’t know these people and b) I would be terrible at writing an obit.  But the death of someone like Whitney Houston cannot go ignored. It’s shocking. She recently did an interview for E and looked better than I’ve seen her in years. I haven’t listened to any Whitney music in a couple of years and listening to it now will be like a punch in the gut.

From the Associate Press

The superstar singer and actress’s publicist, Kristin Foster, broke the news of Houston’s passing to the AP, but thus far, no cause of death has been revealed. In recent years, she struggled with drug abuse.

Her self-titled debut album, released in 1985, sold 25 million copies worldwide. In total, she released seven albums and three film soundtracks; a winner of six Grammys, Houston sold over 170 million albums and singles worldwide. She earned 30 Billboard Awards, 22 American Music Awards and 2 Emmy Awards. She starred in three films, beginning with 1992’s “Waiting to Exhale,” and was due to star in her big screen comeback later this year, a remake of the film “Sparkle.”
