Happy Birthday Whitney Houston (1963-2012): Gone but Not Forgotten

by Notorious Spinks on 08.09.2012

Like millions of others around the world, I was saddened to hear that Whitney Houston was dead.  When I heard the news I was at the New Edition concert right aside of Memphis where her ex-husband Bobby Brown struggled to the take the stage. Although the couple had a very unhealthy relationship, I believe that they really loved each other and under different circumstances they would have been perfect for each other.

It still makes me sad that someone with such great God-given talent is gone to soon.  I was especially sad that her daughter was losing her mother at such a young age.  I’m in my 30′s and it wasn’t easy burying my mom but I can’t imagine how I would have felt if I were only 18.  I still pray that Bobbi K. stays strong and I know Whitney is looking down on her baby.

Happy Birthday Diva!  You are gone but not forgotten!

We can never deny the mark that Whitney left on this world.  Her music is timeless has the ability to move people across many racial, cultural and social backgrounds.  As she was often deemed, “The Voice” had something that only God could give and only he could take away.

I can wait to see Sparkle the movie in theaters on August 17th and see Whitney in her last leading role…


What is your favorite Whitney Houston song?

One of my favorites

Can’t wait for the movie!

It’s such a shame that drugs ruins/ends the lives of so many talented people. Such a tragedy.


Sheila August 17, 2012 at 10:31 am

It still seems unreal that she is gone. We have lost so many amazing and talented people the last 10 years.

I always did and always will love her music.

She is missed. It’s going to be sad to watch her movie and know she isn’t with us anymore.

So sad. I hope Bobbi makes better choices than her mom and dad. I guess we all hope that for our children though.

That kind of voice will never be forgotten. A rare gem.

I’ve always loved her music, and she seemed to be genuine and down-to-earth. It’s very sad and digusting how people put her down, even after death. :(


Ty @ Mama of 3 Munchkins August 12, 2012 at 11:39 pm

She had such an amazing voice, she truly did. There will never be anyone that can touch me the way she did, ever. Just thinking of her brings tears to my eyes.
