Remembering the "Every Woman": R.I.P Whitney Houston

It saddened me when I heard the unfortunate news that Whitney Houston, one of R&B, Soul, and music's finest talents and legends, had passed away. Her exceptional and beautiful voice was her distinguish trait, and it made her one of the most iconic pop and dance singers of all time. Her time with Bobby Brown literally brought her image down, and she tried to rebound from her past drug problems by separating from her estranged ex-husband and restarting her career.

Surely everyone born and fortunate to experience he fabulous voice has their favorite Whitney Houston song, and I don't blame them if they have multiple ones like I do.

It's probably fitting to play now in a time the world loses one of it's greatest and most gifted individuals.
