      Yes, that performance of the National Anthem will be hard to beat.

      Every girl pictured herself as Whitney Houston at some point in her life, singing and dancing. Even us older ones.

      So immensely sad~ bless her, she had incredible talent and will be very missed. Such a beautiful woman.

      RIP Ms. Houston….for our generation…..brings same feeling as when we heard news of Michael Jackson passing.

      Iconic. Seems as if she may have accidentally drowned in her tub. Shame.

      You are free now, Ms. Houston.

      Anytime you hear her voice you automatically know it is Whitney Houston. How ultimately beautiful. She sang with grace, power and strength. Her voice could create chills up your spine.

      In an interview she stated that sometimes she had 15 children with her on tour. Nieces, nephews and more.

      She performed with such elegance, she definitely dressed with class and beauty. I never grow tired of watching and listening to her cd’s.

      Such a tragedy. Is this another case of a doctor or doctors over medicating their patient? Elvis, Michael Jackson and now Whitney.

      Thank you so much for that video SM. Brought tears to my eyes which our National Anthem often does when sung with class (not someone’s butchered rendition which makes me want to turn the volume off). Whitney showed not only her amazing talent, but true heart and soul in that performance. I hope she’s now at peace. Another sad example that proves money and fame really doesn’t bring one the happiness they expected it would:<(

      I do not understand. Yes, this was one extremely talented woman who flushed her God Given Talent down the drain with drugs and alcohol. I am appalled that people want to idolize Whitney and Micheal Jackson. Both should be a lesson in power and fame.

      Kat, we do get it. Just the magnatude of what was thrown away for no good reason is something that is worthy of remembering.

      Humanity throws away small things every, day that are important and it seems to take the big things to really get folks to remember it’s all important.

      I don’t disagree though that she did screw up. My question is where were= these folks that are now saying how much they “loved her” when she was imploding, you know?

    8. NGBoston on February 15th, 2012 11:26 pm

      #6- There are not too many people with this gigantic level of fame that handle it too well.

      No one here is condoning the abuse of drugs or alcohol. It’s sad and a shame that both of these talents succumbed to the evil trappings of their fame.

      You still cannot take away their gift that they gave millions by sharing it with us when they performed.

      Lighten up.
