Whitney Houston: A (Very) Personal Tributenew

I've been a music journalist for nearly three decades, and yet my reasons for mourning Whitney Houston are much more personal than pop-cultural. Whitney's life and career have overlapped with mine many times and on multiple levels in the past 28 years.

Whitney Houston,

Whitney Houston, the big-voiced belter who dominated radio in the 1980s and '90s and whose cover of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" spent 14 weeks at the top of the Hot 100, passed away tonight at the Beverly Hilton.

Whitney Houston's New Album is Almost Absurdly Gimmick-Freenew

I Look to You sounds out of time, and if one didn't know better, one might suspect it was released a decade or two ago. But the timeless approach works. There's something extremely refreshing about a performer who refuses to kowtow to whatever they're calling the newest generation of brats.
