In honor of Whitney Houston’s passing one year ago today, I am dedicating my Motivation Mondays post to the iconic songstress who left this world too soon.
Regardless of your personal feelings towards Whitney, she must be recognized as one of the great pop voices of all time. Her range was out of this world and her talent surpassed many before and after her time. Her talent was natural, her passion was obvious and her smile contagious. Unfortunately, her life veered off course and ultimately caused her time on Earth to be cut short. Despite her fame and talent, she fell victim to an addiction that affects so many others around the world.
Whitney’s hits were endless and it’s hard to just choose a few to share in this post. For me, The Greatest Love of All will always leave me feeling empowered and like I can take on the world.
No matter my mood, Your Love is My Love will brighten my day. The lyrics remind us how powerful love can be. I have vivid memories of singing it with my mom as a young child.
And of course, no Whitney tribute is complete without a dance anthem. I Wanna Dance With Somebody is probably one of her most famous songs. I don’t think it will ever get old. My friends and I have been accused of singing this song at the top of our lungs. We’ve played Whitney’s Greatest Hits album well into the night writing papers. But, that just goes to show her music was timeless. We will always love you, Whitney!
