We were shocked and saddened to learn of the untimely passing of the woman with the once-in-a-generation voice: Brick City's own Whitney Houston. We send our thoughts and prayers especially to her daughter, Bobbi-Christina, and her mother, Cissy. From the New York Times:
She had the he perfect voice, and the perfect image: a gorgeous singer who had sex appeal but was never overtly sexual, who maintained perfect poise.
She influenced a generation of younger singers, from Christina Aguilera to Mariah Carey, who when she first came out sounded so much like Houston that many thought it was Houston.
But, much as we love her too, she wasn't. Rest in peace, Whitney.
