I am deeply saddened over the death of Whitney Houston. I never met her, but she was a part of my 1980’s youth–and I sang her songs to my children and listened to Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin both growing up. My sons are grown now, but they have no idea how she affected so many with that angelic voice. My heart goes out to her friends and family at this time. I just got home from work and I’m still numbed by the news. I couldn’t sing songs tonight I normally do when I went to my usual gig either because I KNOW I would have cried midway. I will say this though….Tomorrow will be a new day–but it won’t be any less sad than it is right now. RIP Whitney.
