I really do hate hearing this kind of news. I had just arrived in Brooklyn and was on my way downtown on the B48 bus line. I decide to check twitter on my phone and there a status update was "...Whitney Houston, dead..." I didn't want to believe it. I was hoping it was a rumor. I checked other sources. And unfortunately, it was true. I felt like she was on the rise for her "come back" album but it never really came. I was so excited for her future albums and there successes. Such a gifted voice and a strong, talented woman. I feel so bad for her 18 year old daughter. I can tell they were best friends. And I cant imagine how it feels to lose a best friend who is your mother as well. Rest In Peace, Whitney. We celebrate your home going!
