The Death of an Icon – Whitney Houston

Thank You, Whitney…

The death of Whitney Houston was a surprise and a sad discovery for the world yesterday. With a voice that seemed to come right from God to us, her presence and hope for more to come has faded.

Her voice transcended all common denominators; she soared above the fads, the typical, the star-of-the-day. Her style and grace gave her performances a quality that remains unmatched, and that inspired countless others. She owned the 1980’s and much of the ’90’s. Her gradual professional decline and private and personal struggles with drugs and alcohol made us hold our breath and pray,Please, God, not this one…

There will never be another rendition of the Star Spangled Banner like hers at Super Bowl XXV…powerful, respectful, joyous and seemingly – breathlessly – effortless as if from another place…
