The Late Great, Whitney Houston

Post by purplelionness » Sun Feb 26, 2012 3:53 am

A tribute to the late, great Whitney Elizabeth Houston

In 2012, February 11th
The music world lost an artist, who now is in heaven

A voice of an angel. So powerful rich, moving, and intense
Over the years, we benefited from her presence

Her only daughter Bobbi Kristina, and her music legacy
Both outstanding for all to hear and see

May I quote the chorus from one of her songs
A few lines, not too long

If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity

How very true, despite a small period of indiscretion
Nobodies’ life is lived in perfection

In 1989 Whitney Houston Foundation For Children Inc. was established
To care for all children who felt abandoned

So I feel I should write a few lines
To a beautiful lady , who touched many lives including mine

What a wonderful tribute to a great lady. She went way to soon. I loved her strong and beautiful voice. I still hear her songs her in my head. :thumbsup:
