We’ll Always Love Whitney

Black History, Editorials

August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012

One of my few childhood memories is watching “The Bodyguard” on T.V. waiting for the time when I could stand up and belt out my favorite song… “Don’t make me close one more door/ I don’t want to hurt anymore/ Stay in my arms if you dare/ Or must I Imagine you there/…I’ll have nothing”

At that age, I had no clue what the song meant.  But it still somehow spoke to my soul. Whitney Houston has been resonating with me since.

I could not contain my disbelief when I was first told International Pop Legend Whitney Houston was deceased.  I quickly turned to facebook and looked through status’s, that confirmed the truth.  I then googled the story.

Houston, 48, was found unconscious in the bathtub of her hotel suite Saturday.  She could not be revived by paramedics.

The news was received with shock and sadness from fans.  Although her career took a series of ups and downs, one thing could not be disputed- the Queen of Pop had a voice. She has six Grammy’s over three decades to prove it.

Growing up, Houston’s songs taught me lessons I will never forget.  We often joked about her collapse and mocked her when she pronounced, “Crack is wack!”, knowing about her addiction.  But the truth is, Houston taught me to believe in miracles and that it impossible things were happening everyday.  She told me the greatest love is to love myself.  It was through her duet with Cece Winans that I learned Of friendship.

Count on me through thick and thin
A friendship that will never end
When you are weak, I will be strong
Helping you to carry on
Call on me, I will be there
Don’t be afraid
Please believe me when I say
Count on…

In middle school, I took my heartbreak hotel cassette tape and cried to the lyrics over lost loves.  In college my friends and I grabbed each others hands and sang into our hairbrush microphones our love for life with Houston’s Lyrics, “I wanna Dance with somebody.”

When it came to feminism I would exclaim, “I’m every woman, It’s all in me!”  And in the end she reminded of using faith to get through a tough situation with her last single, “I look to you.”

Whitney was a beautiful person who made a huge contribution to music, and for that I say, I Will Always Love You….

Rest in Paradise
