In Memoriam: Whitney Houston (1963-2012)

There will be tons of tributes poured out to Whitney Houston and accolades will inundate us over the next weeks and beyond. That's because this woman was simply one of the greatest voices of our lifetime. She was almost without peer. Listening to her sing was pure joy. There are times when you are witnessing a display of great talent, there is almost a sense of privilege.

Her death is an incredible loss.

I've always said that Whitney Houston was born to sing Gospel music. I selfishly wish that she sang it exclusively. Her faith and her spirit came through in such a way that there was an immediate sense of worship the moment she began to sing gospel. I think it's fitting to listen to her this morning...
