I grew up at the height of Whitney's career. The 1980's were hers and no matter who got in her way, ie. Madonna, Cindy Lauper, Taylor Dayne, Jodi Watley, Vanessa Williams - she pushed them aside with the sole power of her voice. I honestly believe that if she had not married that loser Bobby Brown, she would still be with us tonight. Her career went downhill after that.
So many people today were inspired by this woman, we can only imagine how much she meant to the one who will be taking every Grammy on earth tomorrow, Adele. I mean, every artist can, and will say that Whitney touched their lives in some way or another. Hell, she touched mine more than she could possibly know. I used to sit and listen to her when my relationships went sour, I used to listen to her when I wanted something uplifting to make my day. She was the epitome of musical genius in my eyes, and to millions more around the world. You will truly be missed Whitney, you will truly be missed - 'I Will Always Love You'
The following week after posting this blog, Whitney's newest album, "I Look To You" hit #1 on Billboard's U.S. Chart.
