Sima is an avid online writer. She writes about various subjects that she is passionate about. Thanks for reading her articles.


Tribute to Whitney Elizabeth Houston

Whitney Elizabeth Houston, Singing Iconic Diva (August 9, 1963 - February 11, 2012) will always be remembered by the world as a Superstar Megastar Singer, Entertainer and American Music Icon. Here we give tribute to her gift and phenomenal talent of singing and touching hearts all over the globe. Her song, "I Will Always Love You," sold 44 million copies.

Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown (18), will forever be in our hearts and prayers. Cissy Houston, Whitney's mother and father, John Russell Houston, Jr. (1920 - 2003) gave us a voice in Whitney that is unmatched by any singer in the world.

We also remember Bobby Brown, father of Bobbi Kristina, and keep him in our prayers too. He and Whitney were married for many years and shared many special moments together.

Words can not describe what the country is feeling by the loss of this Singing Diva. So I found some written notes on signs, billboards, gates, churches and the ground. I want to share with you, the thoughts of people around the country, who put in writing profound statements about Whitney Houston and what she meant to them. The sayings and quotes are the voices of many; young and old, churched and not, rock, pop, and jazz lovers alike.

I grew up in the church just like Whitney Houston and sang in the Baptist Church Choir. The Church Choir is a place where talent is discovered and young people can go and express themselves in singing. The church is where Whitney got her start. And the church is where her body will be eulogized. I thank God for her voice and talent.


Beautiful Voice

The tribute to the right says, "To the most beautiful voice in the world, we love you Whitney." This is well said. Whitney's voice was a true instrument. The sound that came out of her mouth reached a nation, especially when she sand, "The Star Spangled Banner," national anthem of the United States of America.


Whitney Houston - Singing Legend

Whitney Houston was multi-talented. Recording Artist, Actor, and Model. She was beautiful, and stood 5 ft 8 inches tall. When she died, she probably had put more miles on her lyrics than her feet. There is content over-flowing about Whitney Houston on the internet. You can read about her upbringing, marriage, child, parents, and other material.

But the bottom line is this, Whitney E. Houston sang 'til her death. Although, we feel that Whitney has left us too soon at 48, there must be a reason. There are many lessons to extract from this Singing Divas' life. I hope you find comfort in her strength!

Let the meditations of my heart be acceptable in they sight, Oh Lord, my strength and my redeemer.

Rest In Peace Whitney, your legacy lives on!

    I had truly forgotten how beautiful the National Anthem sounded with Whitney's voice giving us chills as she gave us her best that day. You were not human if you didn't feel something.....this is a wonderful tribute....the world lost a wonderful gift in that voice, but we also received gift, after gift, after gift every time we heard her sing.
