Whitney Houston R.I.P

It was with great sadness that today we learnt the tragic news of Whitney Houston’s death. One of the world’s greatest vocal performers and pop stars. Her contribution to popular music is undeniable and along with the various folks who wrote and produced her music, she created some of the world’s most recognisable and loved songs. From the age of 4 years until my early teens my mother would play the three albums released in that period constantly in the car or at home and as a youngster i fell in love with these songs because of the effect that they would have on her. My mother seemed completely involved in these songs and whether they were ballads or dance numbers her ability to lose herself in the music always intrigued me and would fuel my own love for music as I matured. So thank you Whitney Houston for bringing such joy into my mother and in turn my life. “How Will I Know” is still and will always be a song i reach for. Here it is in all of it’s extended glory…
