As I sit here n read the stories of Whitney's untimely passing I I I feel so lost for words. I'm not a superstar but I am a singer . And from the first time at age 6 when I heard a Whitney song I've been a fan from You Give Good Love to I Look To You. I've been there. I know the struggles with drugs n I know the lonely feeling you carry when u feel u have let so many down. She was my inspiration to sing. My vocal coach use to tell me if all u can think about is singing when u first wake up in the morning or its the last thing u think about at night u r a singer n everytime I opened my mouth to sing it was a Whitney song. I'm truly gonna miss this woman although I never had the pleasure of meeting miss Houston I share the lost of her as if I did. The courage strength the ability to believe n my voice to try new thing with my voice all came from Whitney. May u finally find the peace u couldn't find here on earth. You are truly loved m WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. I LOVE U WHITNEY HOUSTON (NIPPY)

A gem has pass away we will miss whitney but she has left us with plenty great memories. Let us remember the good ones that will last forever in our heart. Lets keep her family in our prayers daily that God give the the strength that they need to make it through this trying time for them. Fans she is in heaven smiling down on us resting safely in the fathers arm. R.I.P. Whitney.

"The Greatest Love of All", was the first song I ever sang in public and it was the first time I fell in love with Whitney Houston's voice. So powerful and so spiritual. Every word in her song I felt and still feel. Every song I had to learn.
To the Family, Friends and Fans of Ms. Whitney Houston,
my heart is heavy and saddened with the loss of such a beautiful soul. We all were so very blessed to have her in our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Bobbi Kristina. I know you're in pain right now and there are no words to soothe your aching heart. Just know the Lord and your mom are looking over you and will give you the strength to make it through.
Whitney, your music will live on forever. A star as bright as you, is where she the sky. God makes no mistakes. So you rest now. Well Done Good And Faithful Servant. "And God will open wide the gates of heaven for you to enter into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
- 2 Peter 1:11
"If tomorrow is judgment day and I'm standing on the front line and the Lord asks me what I did with my life, I will say, I spent it with you."
"If I should die this very day, don't cry, cause on earth we wasn't meant to stay and no matter what the people say, I'll be waiting for you after the judgement day."
- My Love Is Your Love, Whitney Houston

In this time of auto sounds thru computerized beats,lip-sync,make-a-star overnight,bootie-shaking nonsense; we have lost a true voice. There was little runnin across the stage,pyro-technics,confusion cuz "I really can't sing." antics. This gift stood tall,straight and coutured to the nine. She sang and sang and sang. What ya got was a songbird doing what she started in church til the day of her death. Life sometimes teaches us a lesson thru takin that life away. We loved, we cried, we imitated, we cheered ya Ms Houston...Gonna miss ya....The DIVA has left the stage, the crowd has exited the area and the lights now can be turned off.


Now that you're gone, our hearts are broken. Now Where Do Broken Hearts Go? We Still Care For You. A beautiful voice has been silenced. May you rest in peace with your Creator.

More than a talent. Whitney was a mother, daughter, friend, and loved one. My heart is heavy...My condolences to her family. I've loved Ms. Houston's music since I was a little girl. She will live on through her music and those left behind to cherish her memory.

She came on the scene "all at once" looking like "every woman"; and made girls like me "i didn't know my own strength", see "when you believe" and take things "step by step" and seize our "one moment in time" without getting "so emotional" that we can "exhale" and get that "million dollar bill" and be "unashamed" and not have to say "didn't we almost have it all!" Whitney you are and always will be our "Queen of the Night". I "salute" you and I "Will always Love You!" "where you are" is a Better place.

God Bless You and your Family
