Jon Caramanica of The New York Times stated, "Her voice was clean and strong, with barely any grit, well suited to the songs of love and aspiration". . .she is the Voice that transcends the sound of love through barriers of color, creed and religion. What Micheal Jackson is to entertainment, artistry and dance; Whitney is to voice!
Known to many as the "Queen of Pop" but cherished by all as the Voice, Whitney Elizabeth Houston set the standard for the sound of Love, the Voice of generations to come. Despite her personal struggles, she never failed to let Love be the inspiration to the world. Just like each of us, we have personal struggles but they don't dictate our ability to overcome them and still aspire people to find their strength in Love.
Whitney was the first and only female, main stream artist who performed a concert for a new South Africa. All proceeds from the concerts were donated by Whitney Houston and her foundation to selected South African children's charities, two children's museums, the President's Trust Fund for Nelson Mandela, the Kagiso Foundation and several orphanages. Even in a Nation many miles away, she transcribed the message of Love that touched the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRxN2gBwS9Q
Everyday we should be inspired to love, to spread the power of Love through our voices, our gifts, our talents and our work. So here's to Whitney, thank you for showing us the power of the greatest Love of all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E849UUqNe3g
