Pop music loses one of its most influential starsThe world of music has been in mourning for the past week after the sad news of Whitney Houston’s passing. With sales of around 170 million albums and a catalogue of singles which are known the whole world over, popular music has lost one of its true divas.
She may have had a turbulent marriage with fellow musician Bobby Brown and a constant battle with drug addiction, but her musical credentials were always undeniable and she could hit notes in her sleep that other vocalists strive their whole lives to be able to deliver.
She also successfully married the gospel-style vocal with popular bubblegum pop songs and brought it to the masses with songs like ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’ perfectly showcasing her unique talent.
She may not be with us now but her musical legacy still remains and her light will continue to shine brightly.
