By now everyone has heard that WHITNEY HOUSTON, is dead at the young age of 48. Speculation is SUICIDE as the cause of death. I hope not; it's bad enough I feel so horrible about her death. This was a troubled but very talented and beautiful woman. At the onset of her career we all knew Whitney was "very" special. Her voice reached the very core of your being and you could not help but feel her music. Since her debut Whitney has helped me celebrate new love and comforted me when my heart was broken. I could listen to all types of music; but it was something about Whitney, I needed to soothe me into a restful night's sleep after crying hysterically when I was alone and broken hearted.

She gave me the needed validation when she belted out "I'M EVERY WOMAN!" She informed me that "Yes" Jesus loves me. I danced with her when she sang "I wanna dance with somebody who loves me!" She comforted me when I was grieving after the death of my man when she sang and asked "Where Do broken Hearts Go?" and "Why does it hurt so bad?". Women around the world grieved with her when she lost her first child with then husband Bobby Brown and rejoiced when God blessed with another pregnancy which is now known to the world as her beautiful daughter "Bobbi Kristina." We watched in horror as she began to struggle with drugs, her father, husband and the world in general. The media plastered her across the pages of magazines, newspapers, and shit paper just to ridicule the beautiful black woman with an golden voice. We shook in disbelief when she appeared at the Grammy's frail and suffering with voice problems. We watched her many appearances in court due to Domestic Violence charges with her husband Bobby and watched in misery as the flames of both their careers and reputation went up in smoke from their drug usage.

We all laughed when comedians made fun of her troubles; but who is laughing now? Words are very powerful and you do not realize the true effect of those very words until someone takes their life. Did we bully Whitney into this? I will always wonder; but I know many of her fans let her down when she needed us the most. Perhaps had she felt the needed love that we once adorned her with this would not have come to pass. Whitney was an inspiration for many women in the African American Community and she will be dearly missed. Like Micheal Jackson she reached the heart of us and with him will NEVER BE REPLACED. We are losing our VOICES: Luther Vandross, Etta James, Vesta, Micheal Jackson and now Whitney Houston. WHO IS NEXT? I could go on but I can't.....Rest In Peace.....Whitney, may God bless and keep you.

      Yes, we will surely miss Whitney--"the beautiful black woman with the golden voice." Our hearts go out to her mother, her daughter and all her other loved ones. We share their pain, and take comfort in the thought that her life was not in vain.
