R.I.P. Whitney Elizabeth Houston
(August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)
We lost an icon Saturday afternoon on February 11, 2012. Whitney was a singer, actress, producer, model and trendsetter. She was awarded two Emmy Awards, six Grammy awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards, among a total of 415 career awards in her lifetime. Houston was also one of the world’s best selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide. This woman was FIERCE!
I still can not believe it but at least she is in a better place and at peace. We all know Whitney struggled with drugs and alcohol throughout the years and she has been making an effort to change and revamp her career. She was working on the film “Sparkle” which would have been Ms. Houston’s major comeback, but the film is still set for release sometime in August and we will get to see how wonderful she really was.
My prayers go out to her family and close friends, especially her only child Bobbi Kristina who was taken the hospital for stress twice this weekend after hearing the news.
Whitney your fans “Will always love you” and you will forever live on through your music!
