I grew up with Whitney Houston. I loved everything about her, but could not wrap my head around the fact that this beautiful woman was born with such a magnificent voice…powerful and yet effortless. I have watched several documentaries on her life and hate to believe what it said about her. She was a fabulous actress too. I loved her in
The Bodyguard…I still watch it when it comes on the television. I guess that now the next diva would be Mariah Carey. Some would disagree, but I think she tops some of the newer performers.
Prior to Whitney, I was (and am still) enamored with Ella Fitzgerald. She had a voice like honey and there isn’t a song she sung that I didn’t like. She was gorgeous too….
Ah, to be blessed with natural talent like that….
