    oh, wait a min, you mean in her last failed concert tour, i guess?
    I specifically said I think her performance of I Will Always Love You, from the movie The Bodyguard was screaming. Maybe it was the song itself, but for me, every time I hear it, I think it is too much out of control, loud screaming. I always just turn it off when I hear it on the radio. I was a huge fan of Whitney Houston in the 1980's, she had some great songs and arrangements. But like so many with her success and talent, she self imploded. Very sad.

    All the best,

        I like some of Whitney's songs but I lost interest in her since she stopped making music and being relevant. I'm more of a Beyonce fan. I think her best song was her Dolly remake I will always Love you. It is a bummer though she's gone.

          Freaking 60 Minutes, Dateline and the Grammy's are supposedly having tributes tonight ... on a junkie who over-dosed when she had the time and money to get better ... I feel badly for the daughter she left behind.
          Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

            As much as you might condemn the behavior, we all have loved ones suffering similar issues. She died; we don't know the facts yet, a little compassion. Watch her... incredibly cathartic performances.

                Some of my family members are cursed with addiction, so I feel much compassion for her family no matter how much money and fame she had.

                    Am I the only one who doesn't think of this song when I think of her hits?

                      Did you see photos of her on the night of February 9th?

                      She looks awful and is being escorted as if she can't make her own way. It's so sad she's around all of these people and no one sees a red flag.

                        Late last night on the ticker tape I found out
                        It really blew me away , I really dug her in the 80's
                        I know she had a drug problem but she pushed it to the limits

                        She was very special and I will miss her being I am a fan of hers .
                        Rest in Peace Whitney God Bless

                        Sincerely ;

                            Despite how others may or may not feel about her at the end of her life... ok the last handful of years, She is the person who really inspired my passion for music and singing. Her voice will be forever missed!!

                                what... you're more of a 'my name is not Susan' fan?

                                I just read that this is the song Bobby Brown played for her at his concert too. Sorry it's not your bag, I like old Whitney stuff... the stuff I had on vinyl and I'd sing into a hairbrush.


                                also, Jennifer Hudson didn't do a very good version of 'I will always love you' tonight on the Grammys. Why didn't they just have Dolly do it? *sigh*
