Indeed, gone way, way too soon. Whitney's passing was the biggest loss of any music icon we have lost over the past 10+ years, and alas there have been many. The one, the only, The Voice. RIP Whitney.Can’t believe she’ll be gone 10 years tomorrow. I still can’t quite believe it.
Anyway after the event an overwhelmed Gaga was lost in the room, just another wannabe singer with a deal and no hits in a big room full of twats. Whitney Houston saw this girl and beckoned her over. "It's alright," Whitney told the young singer. "Momma's here."
It seems odd that Whitney should have picked out this girl from the crowd and felt the need to talk to her. Maybe that night Whitney was just as lost as Gaga. Maybe she wasn't lost - maybe she was just fucking amazing. Maybe, like so many of the singers we lose too early, she was both in equal measures.
Remembering Whitney’s last public appearance, at Clive Davis’s 2012 pre-Grammy rehearsal.
Can’t believe it’s been ten years.
On a side (happier) note, looks like there will be another Whitney Funko Pop vinyl of an another iconic moment for The Voice...
Of course, this:
Not to mention I Wanna Dance With Somebody and It's Not Right But It's Okay ones too! Take my money!Don't we all!
Whitney has so many looks worthy of a POP figure!Not to mention I Wanna Dance With Somebody and It's Not Right But It's Okay ones too! Take my money!
I know, it feels so much more recent. Still remember seeing the news of her passing well. It was a Sunday morning in the UK I believe when news broke here, and I turned on the TV to see one of the music channels playing the video for I'm Your Baby Tonight, and in the top corner it said "RIP Whitney Houston". Totally stunned.
