What We Should Remember About Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston was a pop diva who was widely considered to have the greatest voice of all time. Houston was awarded with multiple accolades including Grammys and set multiple records in the music industry. In the early 90s, she also had her share of trials and tribulations in her career including confirmed drug use and a ‘complex’ marriage with singer, Bobby Brown. It seemed that Houston’s public persona image began to decline to her personal issues. In 2009, the New Jersey native staged a storybook comeback. Her album, ‘I Look To You’ debuted at number 1 and put the former superstar back on the industry’s radar. Sadly, today Houston has passed away at the age of 48.

My belief is that instead of evaluating her dark days, we should celebrate her legacy. Every triumph in the singer’s career, every box office success and every note she sung should be remembered. Too often it seems that when public figures falter, we judge them (very harshly at times.) And not to mention, if a public figure passes away too soon, no matter how many great things he or she accomplished in their lives, we seem to discuss their struggles more. Whitney Houston was imperfect but she found strength to overcome her demons. Doesn’t that deserves an applause? Hopefully, she will now have peace.

R.I.P. Whitney Houston [LA AP Reports]

According to the Los Angeles Associated Press, Whitney Houston has died at the age of 48.

Camp publicist Kristen Foster, reported just a few moments ago that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unclear.
In her prime, Houston was considered widely as "the golden girl" of the music industry and one of the world's best-selling artists.

Among her various hits were "How Will I Know," ''Saving All My Love for You" and "I Will Always Love You." As a Grammy-award winning artist including (album and record of the year), her success carried her beyond music and onto the big screen. See "The Bodyguard."

By the end of her career, drug use took its toll as her record sales plummeted and her voice became tarnished. Attempting to tour again, Whitney was highly criticized for her lackluster performances. She was a beautiful spirit and her legacy will always remain.
