[ # ] RIP Whitney Houston
February 11th, 2012 under Whitney Houston

Hell to the No. Whitney Houston has passed away today at the age of just 48 according to TMZ. At this time the cause of death is unknown.
I remember a story that Billy Joel once told at a concert I saw him at years ago. Back when Whitney Houston was a teen and a model, he saw her performing at a piano and she told him something along the lines, “I am going to be a singer. I am going to be star!” And he was like, “Yeah, right kid.” He looked back at the incident was like boy was I an idiot for not believing in her.
She not only became a star, she became a superstar. Not only for her music, but also for her acting in the films The Bodyguard and The Preacher’s Wife. She had just finished shooting Sparkle, so we will see her on the big screen one last time in August.
Whitney’s untimely death is also a little bit sadder because yesterday The Hollywood Reporter was saying she was being considered for a judge on The X Factor, something that could’ve turned her life and career around.
My heart goes out to her 18 year old daughter Bobbi Kristina that she had with Bobby Brown. No one should lose their mother at such a young age.
Even though her voice has been silenced, it will live on like her notes did on her songs like I Will Always Love and Didn’t We Almost Have it All. Such a powerful voice to be taken away so young, but we can keep it going by listening to her music that has touched us at some point in our lives. So right now honor her by listening to one of her many hits and sing along because you know every word to her songs because we have all heard them so many times.
