Some of my regular (subscribed) readers know that I have been trying something a little different lately. I have been releasing videos with a small dedication to my husband-to-be.
This month is a little challenging for me because it is themed with Love, and I am finally in love during a Valentine’s Day. It is also Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, and I am equally holding myself responsible for writing a few blogs on the subject.
So, I figured that I would stagger my blogs. And, last week I put a few of my favorite video songs in cue so that you could receive love dedications, and then other blogs as I naturally write. A few of those blogs, included that of “The Voice”, Whitney Houston.
Still devastated, I thought I would add this song on the roster. Where do broken hearts go? I hope- Heaven.
Whitney Houston was found in her hotel bathtub on February 11, 2012. She was slated to attend Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Party last night, and the Grammy’s tonight. She was reportedly dating Ray-J, brother of Brandy. Whitney Houston died on the same day as Brandy’s birthday.
Whitney was the ex-wife of Bobby Brown who had a phenomenal solo career after breaking away from New Edition. But like Houston, they as a couple struggled with drugs their entire relationship. After divorcing in 2007, Whitney was once again believed in by Clive Davis who, gave her another chance. Her comeback would prove that drugs had taken her voice, but we continued to pray for Whitney’s sobriety and her wholeness. Whitney may not have had “The Voice”, but I believe that she had found a new voice (for recording).
When I can get my strength together, I will write a blog about how Whitney Houston made me fall in love with music. And, how this song may have saved my life.
God, I look to you and ask that you watch over and protect Bobbi Kristina. Whisper in her ear, and let her hear you. Amen.
