I hope you will all allow me my bit of indulgence in saying on here a GOODNIGHT to one of the greatest voices that I feel honoured and privileged to have heard and I give thanks for being alive on this planet at the same time as her and I thank her, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing her wonderful gift with us......THANK YOU WHITNEY, THANK YOU !!



Tribute to Whitney that Michael has just posted on FB -

Whitney was easily one of the greatest singers in the history of music. This is a tragic loss of a brilliant artist. My heart and prayers are with her family now and always.

Hi Sylvia, thanks for starting this thread. Whitney was indeed one of the  greatest voices of the 20th century: one that can be defined and recognized with one name. I was just telling my boys this morning that there might be good voices today, but as we can hear on TV, they are a dime a dozen. However, great voices that are staples of our culture and that are refered to as an inspiration for other singers and deserve respect are a lot more rare. I was shocked when I heard the news yesterday and I feel for her daughter and her family. Thank God she left us with the gift of her amazing and gorgeous voice... Man, I think I have more records than CD’s of hers! Yes the world just lost another great artist, but she will be remembered for decades to come. There’ll probably be one heck of a tribute to her on the Grammys tonight! Well anyway, again, thanks for starting this Sylvia, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Thanks Sylvia, I was thinking of starting one too but you beat me to it here. I like this pic of MB with Whitney back in the day...Such a tragic loss of another great performer and she had an amazing voice..I was a big fan back in the day..such a shame she had such a sad personal life.  There will be a tribute to her tonight at the Grammy's.. She's way to young, someone posted on FB now Michael Jackson and Whitney can sing together in Heaven..Awww..


RIP Whitney Houston

Hey Sylvia, I know Whitney was very much recognized for her own hits and especially the songs off “The bodyguard” soundtrack, but I’d like to share one of my many personal favourites. This song is off Jermainne Jackson’s album “Precious moments” and is called: “If you say my eyes are beautiful”:


It may be a little corny but it’s sweet and I personally love it... She had so many beautiful and inspirational  songs and such a beautifully natural talent: I just can’t believe she’s gone... May she rest in peace now... Well, thanks for indulging me and hope you enjoy the song. Take care Sylvia. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Sylvie this is one of my favs,I remember it from an American soap opera called Another world & loved it ever since  .Im so saddened we have lost another great talent way too soon .xx

Hi Sharon, that's the first place I heard it too! My sister watched the show, but it came on just before my soap opera at the time. Thanks for sharing Sharon, good to read you here! Take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

When I woke up this morning at 08:00 a.m., it was the first news on the radio I heart and I thought, I was bad dreaming ?! I did not want to believe it !!!
If I could compare Whithey Houstonn with a car, so she was the Ferrari and a lot of her colleagues who sing too, are just VW or Fords. I am sorry, she was the best, the very best female voice I have ever heard. I was really shocked about her death. So young, so tallented, so much loved by her fans.

I attended her concert 2 years ago in Munich and it was so horrible, she was not able to sing. The situation made me cry at that time as I am sure she knew, she was not good enough and could not make her fans happy.

Michael, I really would like to ask you to tell us some words about her


You certainly are allowed your bit of indulgence Sylvie and I thank you in giving us such a beautiful song to listen to in our remembrance of such a beautiful voice and a beautiful girl !!


Sylvia.   Your wee Scottish friend.


Thanks Sylvia, glad you enjoyed it and thank you so much for bringing Michael's post over here, take care. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada

Whitney Houston is just one of those people that really inspired me and learning of her passing is just sad for anyone on the music industry.

Though considering the build up she had going to her last few moments, it really is tough to get away from an addiction you already hold true to your own and you just have to wait for the decline before it kicks in.

Still one of the greatest singers in history, I must say.

Very sad to see the news of Whitney's passing. She was once amazingly talented and nobody could surpass her talent or fail to recognise her voice. I'm surprised we didn't read this news earlier in her career. I really thought she had beaten her addiction for the sake of her poor daughter.

I'm saddened that the world has lost a someone who once in her life was and amazing singer, but I am more saddened that she chose the drugs and that lifestyle path over her poor daughter who now, because of her Mothers own selfishness is left a drug user and without the most most important person in her life...her Mum.

Whitney was a huge part of my life when I was a singer and always admired her God given talent. What a shame she chose to throw it all away like that. Thank goodness, she leaves us with some amazing music.

I pray that her daughter can now see that drugs never win and swill be able to turn her life around for good, more than her mother ever did.

May Whitney now find the peace that she failed to find here on earth.  XX
