The latest from Janet Awe & friends…

Whitney Houston, RIP

Posted on by Janet Awe

I’ve spent the last three hours in a state of shock and heartbreak, as I found out that Whitney Houston has died. She was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel this afternoon. And she was only 48 years old.

When I was growing up, she had a huge impact on my life. It was the first and only time I could see a young black girl – someone who looked like me and was of a similar age – on television, being so successful in her own right. And with a talent, drive, pose and beauty to really aspire to. At the time, her race didn’t even seem come into it. Her voice and her personality over shone everything and you couldn’t help but be bewitched. Her songs were infectious. She was cute and great fun. Who didn’t want to be Whitney? Who didn’t love her?

She sold over 170 million albums, singles and videos. And her last film, Sparkle, will be released later this year… Mad, sad, but true.. Here are just a few of her many, many, many highlights (where do you even start?…)

“I wanna Dance With Somebody” – wonderful song, great video. My youth.

And mature Whitney could also be fabulous – “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay”

But let’s let her voice speak for itself. This is her isolated vocal track on “How Will I Know”

RIP Whitney Houston. We love you. I love you.
