Whitney Houston RIP
Yesterday Whitney Houston died in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, where she was staying to attend the Grammy Awards. She was only 48. My graphic combines photos of Whitney at the height of her fame and recently, looking the worst for wear after hard partying. Substance abuse had taken its toll on her voice and her career. It may have caused her death. "A great talent squandered' commented Paul Gambaccini sadly. Not being into pop music, I was unaware of her talent until I saw The Bodyguard (1992). What a voice! The movie won Oscars for Best Music and Original Song.
