Whitney Houston: 1963 – 2012. We Will Always Love YOU!

One of the most powerful voices in music sings no more, except in the hearts of those who loved her.

Whitney Houston was found unresponsive in her hotel room at the Beverly Hills Hilton yesterday and was pronounced dead after a bright but all too brief life on Earth.

There are few voices that I have heard that were as powerful and pitch perfect as hers. Her amazing combination of vocal control, vibrato, octave jumps and power had to make anyone who heard this phenomenal lady sing stop in their tracks.

And like many of those who are given such an amazing gift, it takes such a toll on their personal lives and exacts such a personal price that the down side often overshadows the talent and beauty of the up side. From Houston’s troubled marriage to her drug and alcohol problems, this bright star burned out far too soon.

She was only 48 years old.

Pray that she finally finds the serenity, true happiness and peace that she gave to so many through her music, yet was unable to find while among us.

While she had a number of powerfully memorable songs, one springs to mind on the occasion of her death. “I Will Always Love You” – written by Dolly Parton with lyrics that seem eerily appropriate to describe her life as well as her death.

I Will Always Love You

If I should stay, I would only be in your way.

So I’ll go, but I know I’ll think of you ev’ry step of the way.

And I will always love you. I will always love you. You, my darling you. Hmm.
Bittersweet memories that is all I’m taking with me.

So, goodbye. Please, don’t cry. We both know I’m not what you, you need.

And I will always love you. I will always love you.

I hope life treats you kind And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of.

And I wish to you, joy and happiness. But above all this, I wish you love.

And I will always love you.

On Earth, we have lost a rare talent. But the music in Heaven is far sweeter today.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
