The Passing of a Song Princess

14 Feb

Whitney Houston, a musical icon of this era, was pronounced dead last Saturday at 3:55 p.m. after her assistant found the scarlet’s body in a bathtub of a hotel room in the Beverly Hotel of Beverly Hills with her head under water and her feet emerging in the air. She was 48.

On the eve of her death, Houston gave her final performance at Club True, a LA club the held a crowd of about 400 people .  On stage, she accompanied singer Kelly Price in a rendition of the class American spiritual, “Jesus Loves Me.”

Her cause of death remains unknown until the LA coroners office receives word from the taxonomy, a wait that may take six to eight weeks. Contrary to public opinion, no illegal drugs were reported in Houston’s autopsy.  Prescription drugs are the major concerns.

Yesterday, Houston’s body was flown in by Tyler Perry’s private plane to her hometown Newark, New Jersey.

Her funeral is said to take place Saturday afternoon at New Hope Baptist Church, where her talent was founded.  So far the ceremony will be an intimate gathering with invite only.

Houston will always be remembered for “I Will Always Love You,” a song she sung originally written by Dolly Parton that was at the top of the charts and featured in the movie “The Body Guard.” This song will always be a favorite of mine.

Today, look forward to “I Will Always Love You” and some of Houston’s other hits to be played on “The Love Hour” tonight from  in honor of the beloved musical songbird.  Go to wrnu.info and click LISTEN LIVE!  Reminder: There is a link to listen via smart phone.
