Whitney Houston: Gone At 48 Years

This is a 60s music blog but here was one lady from the mid-80s whose passing cannot be left unannounced. Whitney Houston (1963-2012) singer, actress and one time model is gone at 48 years, one day away from the 2012 Grammy Awards. This very beautiful diva with power vocals sold 170 million records during her music career.

She was the daughter of a gospel singer Cissy Houston, the cousin of 1960s pop diva Dionne Warwick and the goddaughter of Aretha Franklin. Houston was the top RnB artiste in the 20th Century.

Reminds me of Michael Jackson who died at 50. Success and stardom often brings unhappiness; it would appear. How sad.

Yes, Chun See, her death was thoroughly discussed on today's Fox News presentation.

The similarities with MJ's death are there. But if we discuss the person, Whitney Houston was an enigma but a truly gifted and beautiful singer.

Thanks for the visit and your comment.

Yes, the world has lost another great singer at the prime of her life. Her unforgettably rich and powerful vocals will live on in such classic as I Will Always Love You. May she rest in peace.
