Another week has passed, and we hear of another celebrity death. Singer-actress Whitney Houston was found dead in her hotel room on the fourth floor of the Beverly Hilton. Early this evening, the news broke out that she was found unresponsive and was soon proclaimed dead. The cause of death is yet unknown.
Whitney Houston will be forever remembered by people of my generation as a talented singer who battled with her own demons. Hits such as “The Greatest Love of All” and “Saving All My Love for You” are entrenched in our memories and are staples in karaoke sessions. In spite of her early professional success, Houston struggled in her personal life. Her problems with substance abuse and marital issues were widely publicized, and yet she went on to try to revive her career.
This is a sad end to the life of a talented person, and she will indeed be missed by the industry and her fans.
Rest in peace, Whitney Houston.
