I won't front, I've never purchased a Whitney Houston album but I have huge respect for her as a vocalists. Whitney was/is what all the American Idol and X-Factor contestants aspire to be! These contestants try to sing Whitney's song and never can really hit the notes she hit (i.e. I Will Always Love You). The first time I heard Whitney Houston was in the mid 80s while in Fremont, San Francisco via my pops. He played me "You Give Good Love" and to this day it's my favorite Whitney Houston song. God bless the Houston family and RIP Whitney. I pray God is with you.
