Whitney Houston had a choice just like everyone us and there is no doubt that some of the choices she made directly or indirectly contributed to her death.
Be that as it may, Whitney Houston will be greatly missed by almost everyone who heard her sing. If my late sister were to be alive today, she would also be sad to hear this because we grew up singing and screaming: I iiii eha will always love you…… every now and then 🙂
According to dailymail.co.uk, Legendary singer and film star whitney houston died in her hotel room after a long battle with hard drugs and alcohol that blighted her career. She was 48. The star was found by her bodyguard drowned in a bathtub in a room containing prescription pill bottles, according to sources.
Paramedics battled to revive the singer but she was pronounced dead at 3.55pm yesterday afternoon. Her frantic daughter Bobbi Kristina, 19, is said to have got into a ‘furious screaming argument’ with police who refused to let her into the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles to see the body of her dead mother. Friends of Miss Houston’s cousin Dionne Warwick, who also went to the hotel to try to see the body, have said that she is ‘inconsolable’.
The cause of death is not yet known. There were no illegal drugs in the fourth floor hotel suite but the previous evening she had ‘partied heavily, drank and chatted loudly’ with friends at the hotel bar, claims TMZ.
Death is the inevitable end of every man and woman. It will be one day be our turn, when that day comes what will your story be? What legacy would you leave behind?
Is it a legacy of crime, theft, corruption, wickedness or love, empowerment, motivation etc.?
In 2009, the Guinness World Records cited her as the most-awarded female act of all time.  Her list of awards includes two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, and 22 American Music Awards, among a total of 415 career awards as of 2010. – Source: Wikipedia
Whitney Houston had a Calling…
Without sounding so hysterical, I strongly believe that Whitney Houston was created specially to glorify God with her voice, now whether she did it well or not is not for me to judge. I believe her “I’ll always love you” track has healed so many broken hearts and mended countless relationships worldwide. If you doubt this, get together with your spouse and play this track and come back to report the results 🙂
She started out singing in a gospel choir of the Baptist church until she was discovered by Clive Davis CEO of Arista Records. She had a church background and those close to her say she would often start singing gospel songs every now and then. It is on record that her first solo performance in the church was “Guide me, oh Thou Great Jehova” Even some days before her death, she performed at a pre-Grammy party hosted by fellow Singer Kenny Lattimore and it was reported that she sang the gospel classic “Jesus Loves Me” with Kelly Price.
I just hope she reconciled with her Creator before or while in that bathtub……
Whitney Houston followed her Heart
Her family members were totally against her decision to marry her sweetheart, Bobby Brown but because she was an adult, who had the right to make Choices, she went her ahead and married him.
You and I can attest that was the greatest mistake late Whitney Houston made, no thanks to Bobby, she became a drunk and an addict of various deadly substance. In 2006, she decided to put an end to the torture called marriage which finally came through in 2007 but then the deed was done.
Until she died, it was all struggles. Her “loving” ex-husband could not even cancel his musical performance that same night in honour of the woman he both loved and destroyed. I must give her kudos to have put up this fellow for so long, I remember that a month after the court gave approval for the divorce, he came back to the court claiming custody of the child plus spousal support. How insane can a man be?
Whitney Houston’s memory lives on….
She came, she saw but she conquered more in music industry than other areas of life. This notwitstanding her memory lives on.
She discovered her passion very early and stayed with it even when she got a job as a model, she kept her eyes on the goal, until the break came the day Clive discovered her extra ordinary talent. She had a choice to either become a super model or stay with music, her very first love.
Whitney Houston was one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos worldwide.
May God Almighty in his infinite mercies grant the Houstons the grace to bear this loss. Losing a loved one is a loss that you cannot comprehend, if you have not experienced it.
