Like many of you today I watched the moving church service of Whitney Houston’s funeral on TV. I’m sure like many of you tears were shared and memories of that voice rang in your favorite songs. I felt close to her even though I never met her. She was the same age as me and I remember vividly the moment she came on the scene back in 1985. That was a special year for me as well. I related to her beautiful smile and her vivacious energy. She was one of a kind and such a beauty. Someone every little girl looked up to hope to be. She was a model, a musical talent and an actress, she had it all. We watched her grow, mature, get married, have a baby and fall from grace. But, we never stopped loving her and wishing for her to overcome her demons and make it back to those glory days. Everyone loved Whitney! She had that spark, that magical thing that you can’t describe, but everyone knew she was a shining star. Like Michael Jackson she was taken from us too soon, but will live on in our hearts and in song. I had the honor of watching her perform at the 1986 American Music Awards in person. She opened the show and you were mesmerized by this amazing talented beautiful woman. Our prayers go out to her daughter Bobbi Kristina and even though Whitney has gone to heaven, she will never be forgotten. Whitney we will always love you!
