R.I.P Whitney Houston: We Will Always Love You

As a child born in the 80s, I like so many other young girls danced and pranced to the songs of Whitney Houston. Her megawatt smile captivated us as we fell in love with her incomparable voice. Throughout the years we saw the pop superstar soar to chart-topping highs and we unfortunately witnessed her ultimate demise.

While she publicly struggled with substance abuse for years, we loved her unconditionally and hoped that she'd recover and make a solid comeback. We imagined her wowing us once again with her powerful pipes, but due to various speculated reasons she was never able to reclaim her vocal prowess.

Even though she's sadly no longer physically present, her music movies, and fun-loving spirit will live on forever. She's now singing with the angels along with our beloved Michael Jackson and guest starring on Don Cornelius' Soul Train: The Heaven Edition. May she rest in peace.

What is your favorite Whitney Houston song/movie?

My all-time favorite song by Whitney Houston is "I'm Your Baby Tonight." That song just exudes happiness!! The video was vibrant and colorful and just all-around GOOD. She will be forever missed!

May God keep the Houston family strong during this difficult time. Whitney Houston- you are deeply missed, we will always love you!

I really couldn't believe this happened. Whitney will always be the voice to me. I love I'm You Baby too. I'm obsessed with Waiting to Exhale.

There are so many, but if I'm FORCED to choose, I'd say "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"!!!

@Soul - I pray that God gives her family peace too.

@Al - I can't believe it, but I think I've only seen "Waiting to Exhale" once! It's not one of those old movies they replay a lot. Like Boyz In the Hood - they play that ALL the time! LOL

@T - Yeah, that's definitely a good one too. I just love them all. Oh and "Saving All My Love!!!" Classic.
