I watch YouTube clips of some of those talent shows on television and just recently made this comment to one of my friends.
“If I have to hear another contestant on American Idol or whatever gets up there and sing ‘I will always love you,’ I think I’ll throw up.”
Of course, I never felt that way about Whitney Houston. She took Dolly Parton’s Country classic to a whole other level. It’s hard to pick out those songs that really showed off her voice, because there were so many of them, but this one does it for me.
And now she’s gone, passing away at only 48. From all I’ve read in the press over the years, I suspect Whitney wasn’t happy in her life. That’s sad as her voice made so many others feel happiness. Her voice will live on.
