Whitney Houston is one of those exceptionally talented people who you hoped would find her way. Her death is such a tragedy.
Of course I listened to her as a kid. I remember a DJ in Pittsburgh who thought I Will Always Love You was the most brilliantly performed song ever, and he played it half a dozen times in a row on air so everyone could appreciate it.
These were my two favorite Whitney songs and videos (probably because of the Rainbow Brite colors and dancing!):
Rest in peace, Whitney.
