RIP Pop Singer Whitney Houston (1963-2012)

February 12, 2012 at 9:50 PM

My dear friend, Arlette, who is exactly as young as I am, said it best: "Ah, Whitney-you were the queen of our prom! The angel choir just received a new diva!! May you get all the solos!"

Troubled lady, but here was one of her finest moments, at Super Bowl XXV in 1991 (go to :35 to get straight to the song):

And here's pop violinist, Vanessa Mae, with "I Will Always Love You," which seems a fair tribute.

In many ways Houston was the Lena Horne of her generation. Great big smile, great big voice, and musicality by the mile.
