Whitney Houston: I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy
Whitney Houston

This year will mark the 25th anniversary of a fresh-faced, curly-haired Whitney Houston storming to the top of the charts with I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

But it’s an anniversary Whitney was destined never to celebrate. The star was found dead on Saturday in her hotel room in Los Angeles, where she had been staying ahead of her planned appearance at last night’s Grammy Music Awards, aged 48. Her cause of death is unknown.

But while it may be her battles with alcohol and drugs that have overshadowed her musical career in recent years, it will be that dazzling, effortless and inimitable voice which will be the enduring legacy of Whitney for her millions of fans.

She confessed to abusing cocaine, marijuana and pills, and her once-pristine voice began to suffer the effects, unable to hit the high notes as she had during her prime.

“The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy.”

If there is anything on this Earth I can relate to..it is that.

I feel you Whitney…

All my Love ……….

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

God bless.

Watch a class act in action Sweet Friends…………

Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb said:

“In my estimation we have lost one of the greatest voices in popular music today… but as we always learn too late…. we never cherish it until it’s gone…”

I Didn’t Know My Own Strength

Lost touch with my soul
I had no where to turn
I had no where to go
Lost sight of my dream,
Thought it would be the end of me
I thought I’d never make it through
I had no hope to hold on to,
I thought I would break

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive

I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

Found hope in my heart,
I found the light to life
My way out of the dark
Found all that I need
Here inside of me
I thought I’d never find my way
I thought I’d never lift that weight
I thought I would break

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive

I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

There were so many times I
Wondered how I’d get through the night I
Thought took all I could take

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive

I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

    When the American people needed it most…10 days into Operation Desert Storm…
    Whitney Houston stept up to the microphone at Super Bowl XXV and lifted the spirits of America..
    What will you do to lift HER spirit to the higher place where she now rests???

    Another talented star falls prey to the destructive lifestyle of hollywood. Very sad. Rest in peace.

    So sad.

    On Valentine’s Day, I like to listen to “I Will Always Love You.” The song brings me great sadness now.

    Whitney, we love you!

    I wonder if she never had met up with Bobby Brown if she would still be alive? Would have happily married? Would have been a greater singer than she is was?

    The what ifs of her life are great.

  12. Leticia says:

    I pray she is resting in peace. And I hope her daughter will have a lot of support, because that poor child needs help coping with this great loss.

    It is sad to see what people are capable of doing to themselves. What are their demons that drive them to self destruct? It is sad that she came to such a terrible end and a beautiful voice was silenced.

    Did anyone see the news about Billy A. Sutton? He died on Saturday too.

    Not trying to belittle the loss of Whitney Houston, just wanted to add a little perspective.
    Have a great day my dear friend.

    Why is it that so many beautiful, talented people fall prey to jerks and drugs? It may come with the wildly popular status Whitney earned. She was a great entertainer, and her voice was wonderful.

    RIP, lady.

    Great tribute to a great talent, extinguished too soon. Thanks for this one Angel, and Happy Valentines day to you.

    I never knew or heard of this young woman, but how sadly it reflects the core rot of this country, especially of its higher-echelon celebrities who, despite their tremendous wealth, cannot live a simple life of dignity and be models of such a life, but must resort to drugs, pills and drink to obfuscate the simple problems they are having experiencing genuine happiness at home and with friends. By genuine I mean without recourse to “boosters”. She’s not the first, nor was Michael Jackson the first, nor the last, unless this country goes back to the values the liberal left has so successfully uprooted from what once was a great country.

    Planned Parenthood, ProChoice, Gay marriage, etc.; These are what rip to shreds the dignity of a home, the sanctity of life, the sanctity of marriage – how, by encouraging irresponsible, perverted or sportive sex. They purposely want to destroy America. And what better way than to turn it into Sodom? These celebrities wouldn’t be out partying if they had a good home to go to every night, where children wait for them with open arms, because they haven’t seen their parents a whole day, where they can dine as a family, or just read a book. Instead they party their way to a lonely death. How tragic! It’s not their beautiful smiles that count. It’s the warmth they have in their souls for their family that counts.

    I even feel stupid for saying this – because it’s so utterly obvious. But apparently not at all so, judging by the events shaking this country into a spasm of self-destruction.

    I wish she could’ve pulled it together.

    RIP Whitney….

    Don’t look now, but she couldn’t hit the low notes anymore, either. I couldn’t believe the damage she had done to her voice in a video I saw on TV the other day. My GOSH.
    A friend who’s now a writer worked in a Holly’d hotel for 2 years and he said she was there very often and never looked close to good; I think the Whitney we saw was made up and primped only for photos and concerts. Joe said she always looked horrible and was disoriented and she’d walk around asking “have you seen Bobby?” very pathetic.
    I think she had a far rougher life than we thought…….poor thing. May she rest in peace, she sure gave a lot of people wonderful moments of entertainment and always will.

  21. OMMAG says:

    Self destruction is just pathetic …. there is no reason to eulogize or pine over anyone who has wasted their gift of life.

    Thanks Angel.
