I wasn't really a fan, either ... yet, still, agree that it's tragic news. Too young to die, daughter left to grieve her, etc. She had a powerful voice, I remember that very well. RIP Whitney.

I loved her in "The Bodyguard". Some of her music will certainly live forever.

Very sad that even a beautiful, talented, intelligent person can lose her life to the demon of drugs.

RIP Whitney Houston

Not really a big fan of her style of music but you can't deny the voice & talent she possessed. Have to wait until all the facts are in but if was drugs or alcohol of any sort it makes me wonder how nobody closest to her was ever able to intervene & say you have to stop or you'll kill yourself. Too young of an age to lose such a great talent.
