My Thoughts About Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston was the first female voice to attract the world’s attention in a magnitude equal to Michael Jackson. She made the way for Beyoncé, Celine Dione, Rhianna, and the material girl Madonna.
The glory of God radiated through her face from her soul. Her smile was warm and inviting. She possessed an incredible musical talent with so much power and charisma that, in my opinion could only be born once in a century.
Very much like Michael Jackson, and Elvis Presley, Whitney Houston had great start into a successful life. What we often don’t realize, just looking at the finished products of their work is the overwhelming stress they endured on and off during their musical careers.
Every one of us, no matter what status of life we are in, poor or rich, is the searching for love and trust. That’s something money can’t buy.
When Whitney Houston entered into marriage with Bobby Brown, we all had our opinions about the relationship. I suppose we all wanted to protect Whitney. As painful as it was to watch, we as her peers, did not have the right to judge her or Bobby Brown. We only knew them through the media. We did not know the deepest intentions and motives of their hearts.
When Whitney started her career she never planned to fall into drugs, pills or alcohol. No one plans to do that. As time went by she lost her smile, she lost her voice and the world looked on criticizing but didn’t offer to help.
That’s a big problem today in our society, people are never satisfied. What happened to our love for Whitney when she needed it most? To just sit by idly and criticize someone you loved, and then let them fall by the wayside is not acceptable. Apathy is a problem we can all do without. A real friend will stay and intervene when all other “friends” will leave.
It’s unbelievably disrespectful, in my opinion, when after Whitney died the press and media as well as many others called her a drug queen and forgot what she really did accomplish before she was beset with problems. How did our society come to feed on bad things, when all the good that was accomplished is far more interesting and powerful? Let’s remember the good about Whitney and celebrate her memory rather than tarnish it with what she suffered through.
My private and special dream was always to sing a duet with her. Most of us can’t imagine how hard it is for her family and especially for her daughter Bobbi Kristina. Let’s pray for them. Whitney is now in a better world and is just possibly recording a new song together with Elvis and Michael.
I will never forget her and neither will you. I’m blessed to have very close friends here in LA, that knew her very well and because of that I can say, she was a beautiful and wonderful person. Remember how her voice made you smile, feel good and dance.
Bless her for those things and give thanks to God for the talent He blessed her with.
Stop criticizing her and others who are suffering with similar addictions such as drugs or alcohol. If you are going to be so bold as to comment on their situation, then be so bold as to pray for them and try to help them overcome. Let’s take a lesson from Whitney’s death and step up to the plate and fight for the people we love and care about. If you can’t help personally, find help for them and don’t give up
