Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, and producer. Houston is one of pop music’s best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170-200 million records sold worldwide.
She released six studio albums, one holiday album and three movie soundtrack albums, all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification.
On February 11, 2012, Houston was found dead in her guest room at the Beverly Hilton, in Beverly Hills, California. The official coroner’s report showed that she had accidentally drowned in the bathtub, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors. News of her death coincided with the 2012 Grammy Awards and featured prominently in American and international media.
Much is not spoken good about her husband who managed her career life. Whitney confesses in an interview with Oprah that her husband, Bobby Brown pushed her into taking cocaine which he laced with marijuana at her early years as a musician. This went on even when she already had their first child. Well shame on you Bobby at least you would have released a hit song together.
Her career was a success, topping the charts is also in the world book of records, for her amazing performances that left her fans blown away. Her heavy angelic voice that can never be forgotten in the books of music.
Currently her daughter Bobbi Kristina is in a medical induced coma at The North Fulton Hospital after she was found face down in a bathtub at her home.
Well Whitney life wasn’t the most perfect life that she ever desired after struggling through drug addiction which finally caught up with her. We all say yolo but with drugs and alcohol you will be saying yolo 6 feet below. Isn’t it a coincidence that her daughter Kristina Bobbi is in hospital for the same case that she died off, drowning in a bathtub .I guess Kristina’s suffering was more psychological after she lost her mother at the most crucial time of her career as a movie star.
We wish Kristina full recovery as she fights for life in hospital, and for the Whitney fans let’s keep the fire blazing and embrace the late soul queen’s music.
