RIP Whitney Houston

I awoke to the sad news that last night, one of the world's greatest music legends, had sadly died of unknown causes in Beverly Hills.
Whitney Houston was a pop icon, who at her peak, was one of the most listened to female singers on the planet. With hits such as 'I will always love you' and 'I wanna dance with somebody' (my personal favourite), her catchy tunes and gospel-style vocals defined the music of the 1980's and 90's.

Behind the scenes, it was a tale of tragedy and heartbreak. Her marriage to Bobbi Brown saw her hooked on drugs and badly beaten, although no one will really understand and know what really happened.
With flocks of celebrities and fans dedicating tweets, messages and thoughts on her death, all that can be said is that she will be greatly missed. Just like Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and so many other talented artists that we have lost over the years, the rumours of trouble never fully prepare us for their ultimate death.

May Whitney, and all the others, Rest in Peace. My thoughts go to her family and friends at this truly heartbreaking time.
