It was through my great love of Kevin Costner that I found another love.
The songbird of a generation – Whitney Houston.
Yes, like everyone else I had heard of her before, but Whitney was forever entwined in my mind with the haunting and powerful ‘I Will Always Love You.’
I can not listen to THAT song without tears falling. Even more so today.
I weep for the loss of talent. I weep for the loss of potential. I weep because forever when people talk of Whitney it will be with buts…
She was the voice of a generation, but…
She had talent, but…
She was one in a million, but…
She was much more than the buts.
She famously once said: “The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy.” She fought her devils in public. I can’t think of anything worse.
But…yes another but…she kept fighting.
Isn’t that what makes the great ones ?
Goodbye Whitney Houston.
Thank you for your voice, your acting, your spirit.
These are what I am taking with me from your presence in this world.
