I have had the experience of meeting a number of performers, stars, National figures, etc. and very few of them lived up to expectations or gave me goosebumps. No, I never met Whitney Houston but her voice has given me goosebumps more than once. Even today as I heard her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner in tribute during the evening news.
What a fabulous talent, but it apparently could not translate into a fabulous life. It emotionally hurt when I would hear of her troubles over the years and leave me shaking my head in sadness.
I truly hope she is at peace now and able to know how much her talent meant to so many.
